Hello again!

This post is going to require going back in time a little ways. Actually, I’m going to have to do quite a bit of that before things are all said and done.

So, I took my brother to the airport February 26, and had to say goodbye. This was the picture for the weather that day. Even the snowman was sad!

Now, the airport in town is a little bit depressing when you have to say goodbye. The reason is that there is a big old glass wall separating the gate from the unsecured area. So, you say goodbye, your loved one goes through security, and then this happens…

Really? It’s like they’ve left, but they are still there. Or like one of us has gone to prison.

I do have to admit, it was kind of interesting to be able to see people get on a plane. It was like a throwback to the 90’s or something. Heh.

But, IMHO, goodbyes STINK! And this is March, which means that workplaces in Japan will be getting ready to transfer people all over the place and get in a fresh batch. Know what that means? More goodbyes. Yuck.

Of course, it is always fun to get to know new people. Maybe instead of people leaving, more and more people could just come. OK, even I can see problems there!

And it’s not like I haven’t contributed to the goodbye cycle myself…

Oh, well! In other news, I will soon tell you about fish, which is much more exciting. And perhaps one day, I will find a template I like – though I’m beginning to wonder!

Happy Pi Day, all!

Awwwww...you perfectly captured goodbye sadness with the snowman's face and Jon's face. I hate good byes, also. Had to say a lot of them in the past 2 days...cried a lot of tears.
