Earlier this spring when I was off to the Edmonton International Airport to pick up someone or another, as I was walking alone on the enclosed walkway from the parking area to the terminal, I suddenly stopped short and looked out the windows at the airport. It felt a little queasy as I tried to reconcile my present reality to whatever was going on inside me.
Finally it dawned on me that the view of the airport was so much like the Glasgow Airport, which we flew into and out of during the time of the attack on the airport there in 2007.
So the other day when we were taking Johanna to the airport, I snapped a picture with my phone, and though I didn't get the right angle, the two airports are quite similar.
Here is Glasgow just after the attack.
And here is Edmonton.
Lauralea noticed it too and commented on the security official standing beneath where we were taking the picture.
Back in Glasgow they had security police all over the place as well, except they all were well supplied with very large black guns.
