Coming Home

I shook hands with Stephen Gisbon and left a very productive meeting early enough to catch a flight home with Stone Barrington. Flying out of John Wayne Airport in his Gulfstream G500 was an unexpected culmination of a grueling week-long trip to southern California,

Flying at night has one perk for me, I sleep through the flight and don’t have much jet-lag. I didn’t wake up till the engine pitch changed. Looking out the window the first thing I recognized was Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, We were on approach to Teterboro Airport. I’d slept through the refueling stop in Kansas City. In a few minutes I’d be home and ready for a weekend of working in my garden.

    The narrator is lucky to be able to sleep through the flight. The feeling of exhaustion after a long meeting, and the joy of coming home are tangible.

    You described it so well.
