It is the middle of a weird summer. People coming and going, things changing, decisions to take…Busy thoughts and actions, random events huge or hardly any impact.
Sim had her last day at the office. A day with a diploma from our boss and a goodbye present from us. I will miss her, the first of the team to tell me how things were when I first started working here…She’s moving to Spain with her boyfriend, she’ll start school and work there and she will be happy. Cristina V started crying before we left and I could barely stop my own tears. These are the people I spend most of my life with, about 9 hours of each day, several outings and birthday celebrations and just hanging around. Everyone coming into and leaving this team represents a major change.
We made Sim a T-shirt. On the front, it had a red little devil and it said “I’ll try to be nicer if you try to be smarter”. It is so her!
Today, having brunch with Cris, trapped on the terrace because it had started to rain like crazy, we talked about everything going on. Stuff form the past, plans, need to, have to, wish to…However the “imprisonment” of the cats and dogs pouring away made it all seem so far. No more worries, musts and whishes. Just a quiet, light conversation watching the rain. It all seemed far, like watching a movie and this circumstance did a great job relaxing me!
I’ve made plans for months and years to come. What schools to start/finish, what books to read, what new interests to have and what means of transportation to use when visiting K in Constanta. Yes, he is leaving and moving to Constanta sometime this month. I will see the sea a lot during the months to come!
