In just 48 hours, I will be boarding a plane for London. I am part of a choir that will be singing at the American Embassy Thanksgiving Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral. It’s a plan that’s been in the works for nearly a year, but it still feels unreal.
The Thames, the Tower of London, the Tube, Big Ben. These are all just words without substance.
There’s been so much talking, planning, rehearsing and fundraising that the actual trip seems like an afterthought. At least that’s what it feels like now.
I’m sure it won’t once I land at Heathrow.
I’m sure it won’t once I’m on the plane.
I’m sure it won’t once my suitcase is packed.
Sometime in the next 2 days, London will become a reality. I can’t wait!
