Late afternoon in a Houston city park
This photo always reminds me of my sister's visit at Thanksgiving two years ago, and it reminds me of autumn and of all the things still to be explored (and photographed!) in this place I currently live. With my sister and autumn in mind, I'm eagerly anticipating my visit north in a few days, where I'll get to see her and experience autumn at home (it won't be autumn down south for quite awhile.) Of course, there's all the other good things that come along with a visit home: family, little ones to entertain, old friends, walks, hikes, tea and coffee downtown in cozy shops. I'm trying to focus on these good things more than on my flight phobia; it's only been this year that I've gotten on a plane again after seven years on the ground. My trip this week will be my first flight alone in a long time. This flight phobia story deserves a post of its own at some point!
What are you anticipating right now? How do you approach your fears?
