Traveling, Mazes and Changes

Looking back as we leave LAX

Looking back as we leave LAX

Good Day, God!

I’ve acquired a new outlook on traveling. I now see it as an exercise in how swiftly I can regroup and reorient to new situations.

Then as a next step, I’m hoping to work on “being calm, loving and pleasant” while I’m reorienting

Our first reorientation this trip came because out trip to Los Angeles was on Hawaiian, not United. Right off, we couldn’t find the agricultural inspection station.  United’s comparable station is outside near the curb. Hawaiian has streamlined. Its agricultural station is the last step, just before our bags slipped down the conveyor belt to be put on the plane. Thank goodness for the nice Hawaiian Air employee who helped us through the process!

Sigh. Unlearning old ways and then absorbing new ways is hard, God. Mind You, at least we now have Google Maps — and that has REALLY helped. That is, it WILL help just as soon as my wonderful husband and designated driver, Kit, learns to trust them — and me — rather than his memory.

In Los Angeles, after we reached our hotel — expertly driven there by Kit — we looked for the elevator to take us and our bags down from the second floor parking. But we couldn’t an elevator — thank goodness that was because there wasn’t an elevator! Then, after getting our room keys and trying to call the elevator, a fellow guest demonstrated that we had to swipe our room key to call it. He said he had found that out jus ten minutes before.

In situations like this, I find myself marveling how rats ever find their way around mazes. They can’t even read! But, of course, reading would only be helpful if there were signs.

Well, God, Lumosity is a useful “brain game” but nothing beats traveling!
