Standing Still

There are times when I wish time really could stand still for a while, so we could spend more of it with people we are particularly close to. That’s an especially-attractive thought for those of us who aren’t particularly close to a lot of people.

Someone who has become a very close friend is about to start a new adventure in just about a month from now, and there’s a lot of excitement surrounding the change.

For me, there’s some sadness, too. More than I expected. And I’m still processing all of that.

I’ll talk more about the particulars in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, I’ll try to avoid getting maudlin about things. If you see me slipping into sadness, give me a virtual smack, will you?

  1. awww! I’m very sorry that your friend is leaving Patrick!
    🙁 I’m having a bit of a stretch here, too ; with a friend and a family member.
    I think it is a true loss.
    All we can hope for is to make new friends at the same rate or keep in touch (harder).
