I haven't posted much about it because it has been a busy fall, but all of the suburban family life festivities are on hold now. We are at the Newark airport waiting to board a flight to Hong Kong, connecting to Taipei. Yes, boarding is delayed. Yes, we will be flying for 19 hours. Yes, that is my kid riding the moving walkways around and around, but there is nowhere I'd rather be. By the way, it's my birthday!
