I took a series of sequential photos of Sarah and the dogs when hiking the York Trail in Leona Heights Park, and my phone - without my knowledge - combined them into a single animated photo. Neat!

I got to LAX a bit early taking the long way back via the Pacific Coast Highway. There are security checkpoints, but honestly security and the traffic here haven't been that bad; I was expecting massive lines, and maybe so has everyone else and the overcompensation and planning makes it a non-event. I don't mind that.

I'm currently sitting in a windowed corridor while people wheeze their way by me, complaining that there isn't a conveyer belt to shuttle them to the nearest in-terminal bar, where it's not a sin, nay it's almost expected to be on your third drink before the morning fog has burned off. I wish I was joking.

I've seen a lot of people shuttled on the electric golf carts. On my way here, I witnessed a miracle healing of a middle-aged woman as she nimbly rose from her wheelchair and booked it to the coffee shop as soon as the airline rep left her sight.

I don't know all their stories, so I will freely admit that there is context that I may be missing. With that said, I can't help but wonder how many people are taking advantage of hospitality and services intended for others. I've heard references to "miracle flights", where many customers arrive on wheelchairs with priority boarding and exit unassisted in stark contrast.

I shouldn't focus on the negative, so instead I'll sip my coffee and ponder other, more "real" things and watch the majority of travelers act like normal human beings and try not to fixate on the absurdity of the few.

I'm looking forward to seeing my wife, dogs and cats, family and friends again. Safe travels.
