Well I'm sailing softly across the Sea of Life and it's so comforting to see the bright souls I share it with

I want to dedicate this post to my friends.

I've reached a point in my life where my closest friends have dispersed to follow dreams in distant cities. The last few weeks has been a series of goodbyes and tears and promises to keep in touch. I am still here. For now. But even I will be leaving at the end of the year. This city has lost a little of its magic, its sheen, its gloss, its light. Without my friends it is a little emptier, a touch darker, and eerie in its silence. Who would we be without our friends? I feel like a stranger to myself without them.

I will miss drinking wine with you and endless chatter on long summer days. I will miss pot luck dinners with you and laughing so much that tears stream down our faces. I will miss being able to tell you something exciting that has happened as soon as it happens. I will miss you being just down the road, even though we didn't catch up nearly as often as we should have. I liked knowing that you were right there. I will miss your hugs. Until then we have email. We have the phone. And maybe, just maybe I will even send you a letter. Be happy always.

  1. Funny thing - I'm going through something very similar to this. All my friends left last year and I'm still finding new ground.

  2. That photo of the girls with their hair plaited together is amazing :)
