where planes can’t take you

I made it.

To Detroit.

But, more importantly.

In an airport where my husband kissed me goodbye,

On a plane where my friend and I laughed as we soared above the clouds.

In a car that was new on streets that were unknown in a city unexplored.

Then to a hotel room where my kids’ voices took me miles away.

To places I wasn’t sure I would ever see again.

Doing things that were possibly forbidden.

Taking chances once unpredicted.

I made it.

Much further than Detroit.

    Annisa, YOU took US farther than we’d ever gone. Thank You!

    You gave me the inspiration to do something about my love for creating.

    You did make it. Sometimes the smallest of things is not so really that small after all. I hope you have a great time here in the D. In a city where most have us been knocked down, we’re getting up too… slowly, but we are making it and really that’s all that matters right.

    Nothing is the same as it was, but the new path you are forging is pretty damned exciting and cool.

    Have fun in Motor City!
