(mostly) daily photoblog

10 days to go…

It won’t be long, now, until I leave Canada for two years.  Ten days until the airplane takes off from the tarmac and my family and I go.  We’re at that stage where every day has more “good-byes” and “farewells” and “until we see you agains”.  It’s weird, and emotionally raw.

I think that the farewells would be easier if I didn’t care, but that’s the point – meaning comes from caring.  What I need to remember right now is to have perspective.  We’re saying farewell here, but we’ll be meeting and getting to know a whole lot of new people.

For every sunset, there is a sunrise.

  1. Seeing your masthead photo brought back so many memories! the Pentax K1000 was my first camera. Life ‘at the beach’ (salt air/humidity) destroyed it, but I still miss it! Buen viaje! Z

  3. What a beautiful way to portrait your departure… And to get ready for that… we’re also getting ready to leave our 2 years in Brazil behind… At least, for a while… Thank you for sharing such a beautiful image, and for inspiration… greetings from Recife, Brazil!

  10. This makes me a bit sad since I have to leave soon as well, and I don’t know when I’ll be able to come back…
