Airport terminals are entertaining venues to hang out if you cannot afford the movies! The most interesting storylines involve watching people arriving or leaving. The couple huddled – more like a locked embrace – as she struggles to let him go through security. My recent trip to British Columbia found me in Kelowna’s terminal waiting for Glenys to arrive. I was watching a family reunion where two young parents were meeting up with the son’s parents to present to them their grandchild that they were seeing for the first time!

The emotions of greetings and farewells speak to the challenge of distance relationships. It takes a lot of work to keep the connections open and the fire burning when people are so far away.
