That Yellow Airport Taxi

Friday, May 14, 2010

Yesterday, while walking home for lunch, I saw a yellow airport taxi enter the gate, pass me by and drive up towards the condo’s main entrance. I gazed at the vehicle, almost transfixed, wondering who the passenger could be. Mumbling an on-the-spot incantation, I willed it to be him. I closed my eyes and imagined him alighting from that cab, wearied from the long plane ride but with eyes twinkling with joyful exhilaration. It was such a beautiful sight; I can’t help but smile. Knowing that it couldn’t possibly be him, I mentally shook myself and walked on, but in my mind the image of his arrival remained. And it will remain until he finally arrives.
