Reality Setting In

It's 4 in the morning here, on the day that I fly out of Alaska.  I've been feeling very calm the last few days, extremely calm and I've watched myself dance in and out of questioning this, as I enjoy it.  Waking early to finish preparations, I've been spending time with Zip, Henry and Angel, and I realized that I'll be away from home for four months, including time with family in the New Year.  Four months...  A quarter of a year... 120 days... 3,050+ hours...  That's a really long time.  Now I feel a tightness in my chest and a burning in my throat as I fight back tears and fears.
