Are we there?

Are we there YET? Are we THERE yet? Are we THERE YET!!? are we there yet? ARE. WE. THERE. YET! We must be close, surely. Every morning has started with a glorious sunrise, breaking through the mist. Every afternoon finds me gazing out of the window as the sun sweeps across the land. Every evening is slower to end, fading smoothly to grey.
