Sayonara!   We did get the tailwind we were promised. 11 hours to Chicago, 3.5 to Dallas, .5 to Austin. Instinctively I bowed to someone in the line at a bagel shop at O'Hare.  Bowing is one of my favorite customs in Japan - and even more than the awkward person to person bow battles are the bows employees do when entering the room / department store floor / train car.  A general threshold acknowledgment to everyone at once and to no one in particular.   Threshold conditions ... moving from one place to another ... Mmmmmm.
