I just returned from a trip to Ithaca, NY, and it was a good one. Even so, embarking on a cross-country journey always involves the nuisance of pet-care, house-watching, mail-holding plus the mixture of dread and excitement for the actual travel.
|"Waves In, Waves Out" is an all-textile installation at the Portland airport, by Japanese artist Sayuri Sasaki Hemann. It is dedicated to all people whose lives were changed by the earthquake/tsunami in 2011.|
I also love the changing art displays at most airports. Next time you travel you should take a moment to look; it will improve your experience.
So if you're traveling, take a deep breath and try to enjoy it, eh? Pretend you just got a free ticket to an art museum from which you will emerge in a different time and place entirely. Bon voyage.
