Sampling beer on the bay by Lake Erie. Maybe it’s the beer or the sunshine or the boats bobbing and zipping past in the rippling lake- summer days like these breathe life into my spirit, reminding me that I’m alive.
After three and a half years, my office is cleared and I’m saying goodbye. It was difficult leaving the relationships I’ve built, but I’m excited for my new job and the growth and independence it will bring.
There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.
These shades travelled with me through Italy and to Paris, shading my eyes from the bright Italian sun. Through them, my eyes saw the coliseum, the most beautiful church in Florence, and the sparkling canals of Venice. They have been faithful glasses, but alas have broken. Ciao bellas, you have served me well.
