I enjoyed this post, Tim... maybe because I've had similar experiences with strangers that felt *meant to be*.

Hi Tim, Appreciate your muses! I differ, however, on the issue of silence. Silence can be golden (who said that?), it can be used to be both kind and unkind.. In your story, however, it framed your state of mind as a shell to the crowded and stressful world that traveling can be.

I just finished an odyssey of 25+ hours, from Montana to Buenos Aires. Certainly not the 3 month trip by boat it used to be.. but a rushed trip of heavy hearts and eyelids, and sore arms and shoulders. I took a lot more than my usual light carry on this time: my carry on, a 16-month old, a baby bag of liquids, foods, diapers and sanitizing paraphernalia, and the broken expectations of a Christmas family reunion.

Those holiday tickets were replaced for a different kind of trip, an expected unexpected family reunion to say goodbye to my mother posthumously. Adrian came along for a week, and I stayed behind with Sf for another week to sort out through the paperwork and family dynamics.

I appreciated the kindness and extra space I found when traveling alone with a baby, and I did not apologize when cutting lines.

Hope you are well. When are you planning a trip to Montana?
