The bags are packed, I am freshly showered and the taxi is ordered. Everything is ready, and adventure lies just a few hours away. Usually I would feel panicky now. Or emotional. Or ill. When I was little my mother complained of an upset stomach before every trip. I hated it. Today I understand. It's the anticipating, the pack list, the fear, and ultimately the responsibility for safety, for comfort but also for adventure.
Today, I feel serenely calm. Just another day, just another step. Let's take it!
