Lately I have had to say a lot of different kinds of hellos and goodbyes.
Hellos: I’ve had a couple of old Austin friends visit the Bay Area. It was great to talk to one of them. But I found that we don’t have as much to talk about as before. And I see that time has changed things.
Goodbyes: There are some long-term and short-term goodbyes lately. Some have been tougher to take than others. I’ve learned that it’s less important to understand a goodbye, but more important to express and embrace emotional feelings about it. And I know that time will heal things.
To all the students in GNCC, have a great summer and I really do miss having you guys around.
