Cummings, Martha T.
January 1999
Straddling the Borders;1999, p191
This section narrates the author's experiences while her mother visited her in Italy. She was greatly relieved to be moving away from something. Relieved to be moving toward something. Relieved that Alitalia Airlines had brought her mother to her safely. They had though about canceling her trip due to lingering warnings to U.S. citizens traveling abroad. Threats still coming at them in their foreign travels. They tossed the dice and opted for broadening their boundaries instead of narrowing them. Her mother rounded the corner at Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Rome with her luggage in her hand and as big a smile as she ever remembers.
