Chicago O’Hare

Dear J-

Good thing / bad thing about traveling is you get to see a lot of different places where maybe you wouldn’t do so normally. Today I walked through the United terminal at O’Hare — I’d seen pictures before but wasn’t prepared for just how vast it was, how light suffuses every inch. But it still sucks to travel, I thought, already missing the family we’ve been growing.

Then on the way back out of Ottawa I learned about the Queen of Katwe, Phiona Mutesi, and what she’s had to go through — it put the later interview with Taryn Simon, who’s my age, in perspective. It put my life in perspective, all the opportunities I’ve had and how lucky I’ve been, frankly. So yeah, sucks to travel but when else might I get the chance?
