Sunday's picture and a song - Leaving on a Jet Plane
Thinking that they were rather odd bedtime songs for me to sing to our children, my daughter recently asked why "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "500 Miles Away from Home" were in my nightly repertoire. At the time, I told her that they're the only songs, along with "Rose Garden" for which I remember the words, but perhaps I remember the words because traveling has always played such a major role in my life.
Today, I'm heading towards Boston to spend time with our children while Stephane flys in the opposite direction for business. His travels will take him to China, Vietnam, Thailand and Turkey during the next two weeks.
