Fare Thee Well...

I sit here in the house alone. It is quiet here, save for the sound of the wind in the trees and the whale song of the ice machine.

Even after that, there is much to look forward to. We have many plans, forming and shaping and swirling into being. So it's just a temporary goodbye – a temporary parting of ways.

I try to imagine what it was like before spending countless hours together, when the solitude of the woods was my standard. I try to imagine how I managed without my friend. My heart aches at her leaving, but there are many adventures yet to be had and many more chapters left to be read.

I miss you amazingly much. I wish I was there with you and Dustin hammering on wire, making beautiful food, playing games.

I was sad to leave today. And I'm glad we will have a few days to drape Daniel and Paula with our Calderiffic pieces, laugh, play, take pictures.
