The Beginning...

This is the point in the process when we start to say goodbye.  I wanted to title this "The Beginning of the Goodbyes," but after some thought I realized I needed to rethink my approach.  This is just in fact the beginning of a different way of holding these friendships.

The thing is that I've already said "goodbye" to this group of people once.  It was the hardest goodbye I've ever had to say.  I would venture to say it left my heart broken.  But if I've learned ANYTHING from that goodbye, it's this...

 The world is small.  People will come back into your life.  Not as often, or as unexpectedly, but they will venture back. 

Plus, these crazy people had us out until 2:00 IN THE MORNING.  It was both the latest I've stayed up in two years, and the hardest I've danced in two years. 

The perfect way to say "goodbye".

Mostly because I only have the stamina to do this once every two years.

Those crazy kids.

I love them.

I love you! And all these photos. Love, love, love our crazy friends. And watching you and Dustin dance that night was one of my most favorite memories.

It's not goodbye. I've found that the world is small. In my first few months in DC, I saw several folks from my different times in my life, including in Cambodia and Thailand. These experiences bind us.
