Chapter Nineteen – Priorities

The drive to Ramstein Air Base was familiar, but it had been six weeks since the last time Kelly had made the drive.  She somehow felt like a different person than when she’d left to check on her grandparents.  In the early dawn, the road was almost empty and the light was only now touching the land around her.  She drove past the rolling hills, lovely villages and green fields that she had always enjoyed; today she barely gave the scenery a glance. Her mind was in turmoil.  Her thoughts scuttled from the last days she had spent in Arizona, to the long flight home, then to the difficult discussions she’d had with her husband the previous night, and finally to her worry about what situation may be waiting for her at work.  

At one point, she tore her concentration from her worries and tried to appreciate the countryside.  It was beautiful, in such a different way than the drives between Payson and Phoenix had been, but just as stunning and stimulating.  As she considered the differences between the two drives, Kelly realized she was longing for the now familiar drive between Phoenix and Payson.  She wished she were watching the majestic saguaro commanding the landscape as she’d seen them in the early morning when she’d last driven from Payson to the airport in Phoenix.  That drive had been the last happy interlude in the past two days. 

The air travel had been fraught with delays, almost missed connections and then, during the seven hour flight from New York to Frankfurt, a constant clamor of noise.
