Seven Random Things about Luggage Lady:
(1) My three siblings and I had tickets for AA flight #191 on May 25, 1979. But, at the last-minute, my parents relented to our pleas to miss a few days of school and meet up with them earlier, changing our itinerary to the same flight # on Wednesday the 23rd. The Friday departure crashed on takeoff…
(2) In my fantasy world, I’d sing like Alison Krauss…
(3) I’m a Libra, making me a crazy writer — always second-guessing…
(4) I have a degree in Speech Communications and am still terrified of public speaking…
(5) I’ve done three back-flips out of a perfectly good airplane…
(6) I capsized aboard a Hobie Cat when I worked for Club Med, resulting in emergency surgery and thirty-seven stitches in the Bahamas…
(7) The sight of an elderly couple clasping one another’s hand puts a lump in my throat…

I wish to nominate the following talented bloggers:
I am so grateful for the amazing community of artists and kind readers I’ve had the privilege of crossing paths with here. A special thanks to my little brother at Live Action Digital who came up with my luggage lady handle and encouraged me — as only a fellow artist can…
Congratulations! Well deserved.
Thanks my dear friend! xo
Congrats! Keep on writing your heart, brad
Your kindness, consistent support, and beautiful comments inspire me to do just that. Thank you!!!!!
You are carrying much more than mere luggage, dear Lady…
Thank you for your kindness and support…
Congrats and thank you luggage lady for nominating me with your kind thought. I am a newbie to wordpress and trying hard to find my time to read others’ creative and wonderful blogs. I have enjoyed some of the writings though.
I have seen a life of deep struggles and experienced the darkest sides of the mind. Writing, thinking, music and family support were the only things helped me see through it. I have sprung back. I am a family man and spend most of my time with them, I cannot help but mention Mark Knopfler as my favorite musician which I play while I write.
Welcome! We are lucky to have you. Bravo for being a family man. The world can’t have enough of those. 🙂 I absolutely adore Mark Knopler. Have you ever listened to any of his duets with Emmylou Harris? It’s a real treat! So happy you’re here… xo
Congratulations on the recognition of a great blog!
Haha it’s totally normal to be scared of speaking in public. Only the very gifted aren’t. Congrats for the award!

Good…Your poignant, heartfelt piece expresses what others may think but not have the courage to share. And what a shame that would be!

I love these honors if only to be enlightened a bit more on the lovely people who blog. I share in your sentiment – I adore the elderly. When they travel through this world together and remain in love, they’re a testament to what real living in this life is all about. And amazing reveals, especially about the ominous flight…wow.
