    Dear Spring,
    I’m ready. I’ve waited (im)patiently while your predecessor has made hit after hit on us.
    I’m ready for Old Man Winter to gather up his dingy, gray snow and ice, his biting wind and frosty mornings and hit the road.

    My daughter and granddaughter were on that flight from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine-hour, 14-minute flight that, except for bathroom breaks, I tracked on my computer to make sure they got there safely.
    At one point, about an hour off the California coast, I noticed that the plane icon on my computer faced east instead of west.
