Leaving on a Jet Plane...


"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around." -"Love Actually"

The quote above is one of  my favorites from "Love Actually." Actually, it may rank up there on my list of favorite quotes, in general. 

I often think of this quote whenever I travel. Each time I pass through Heathrow airport, it resonates with me.  I'll think of it today as I return to London to begin my second to last term of grad school. Cheers for now! I'll be blogging from across the pond once more!
