The Man on the Plane......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Two weeks ago yesterday I flew back from Chile, where I had spent ten days in Santiago and then mostly in Patagonia. I fly Business Class and met a Chilean man next to me who was traveling for work to Chicago and then Detroit for about six weeks. I have thought about him a lot in the last couple of days. When we landed in New York, he was taking a taxi to another terminal to get a flight to Chicago. 

Since that time there have been so many restrictions placed upon us here, I wonder if he was able to get home, or if he is quarantined in some unfamiliar city in a hotel room? This guy was very pleasant and while we didn't converse a great deal, I can't but worry about him. Life is so strange, bizarre and unpredictable. I will never know if he got home but I hope he did. So today I said a prayer for him.

This picture was taken at the National Park in Torres del Paine, as we just took a few minutes to reflect and to be.

Hi Sheila - it must be a bit strange to be in a different country during this time.  Although it wasn't a vacation, the circumstances are certainly providing much food for thought

Morning Sheila.

Life as we know it, has changed.  I wonder if we will ever get back to the way it was prior to this Covid-19 outbreak

That's a stunning photo, Sheila.  If I were to stand there for a few moments, I think it would grab me enough that I'd not wish to leave!

My GF from Northern Ireland was taking a 2 month holiday. Fly into Toronto, Hawaii, Minneapolis, Denver and Vegas to hang out with me before going home. She left Ireland on the 9th  . . . and she's stuck in Toronto with a boyfriend she hadn't seen in 10 years, in his studio apartment. LOL I expect an engagement to come from this, if they both survive!

Candice A. Donofrio - I have a similar situation with my daughter- she went to Florida to see a good friend and stay with his family - she went for four days and it could be four months now! I wonder how their relationship is going to look when this is all over

Hi Sheila Anderson 

I'm not 100% successful at it yet, but am getting better ...I am developing a strategy that every time someone pops up in my mind I say a quick prayer for them and if it is frequent I give them a call or email/FB message.
