Another Delay For Amelia

Seventy-five years ago today Amelia Earhart had hoped to be on her way to Howland Island.  We know that she will not make that final take off for three more days.  In But This Is Different she has no way to communicate these delays to the woman who waits for her on the island of Nani.  In the photograph Amelia stands on the wing of her Electra on a dark night in Lae, New Guiena, and surely looks toward that invisible speck of land knowing that Pilapan also gazes into the night searching for the most famous face in the world.
