  •  i was 18 years old. it was nearly 21 years ago. (8+ / 0-)

    i was on my way to seminary in Dallas, TX.  it was the last time my parents were proud of me and had hopes for me before i turned into an evil heathen liberal.  

    i flew from Spokane to Seattle and then to Dallas.  it was pretty amazing.  my favorite thing was being in the clouds.  my second was looking down and seeing how the farms all looked like a quilt from the sky.

    i kind of freaked out a little when i saw the horizon in Texas during a sunset that night.  i had grown up in the hills and mountains of the Northwest.  the farthest i'd been from there was Denver.  as I saw the sun fall over the horizon i felt like i was seeing the edge of the world.
