A touching poem from the Network for Grateful Living . . .

You Can't Have It All

But you can have the fig tree and its fat leaves like clown hands

You can have the purr of the cat and th...

After learning my flight was detained 4 hours,
I heard the announcement:
If anyone in the vicinity of gate 4-A understands any Arabic,
