Final Thoughts. Departure usually doesn't make one happy. "The sun is shining, but it's raining in my heart,” as Buddy Holly used to sing. Or will it be like that promise in the "Alias"-TV-show: "We'll find each other. We'll always find each other." A resolution held on to in times of greatest despair following separation and loss. There was a famous wartime song in England, it goes like this: "We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when. But I know, we'll meet again some sunny day." During these hard times, people wanted to think of nice things! A creative colleague wrote the following sentence for his mother's tombstone: "Earth's light has dimmed with your passing, but Heaven has a new star... its brightest ever." Some people feel that they can connect as they look up to the stars from different places, when they are lonely.
Post Scriptum. Now I was going to write more about heroism, unreal mysticism that helps escaping everyday life. Movies are full of this, condensed into entertainment-portions of one or two hours, fast, stunning, surprising, and still stereotype. Then I was going to mention books and the true adventures in the head, where pictures form of events, places, and people never seen, with fantasy unleashed, imagination without borders. But I won't elaborate on this any further, for life is too real and sometimes you have to face it, without escape, without comfort, without shining example, just yourself and no one else. It is true, sometimes cold, but can be so rewarding. Looking back is often great, looking forward is even better! As a kid you want to grow up as fast as possible to be "allowed" to do more on your own. As an adult you wish, you had some of the enthusiasm back that your memory tells you, you once had had. Is this word repetition required by the English language, or do I already stammer, as if getting nervous talking about it, or excited to face reality and future? Weird, isn't it? Maybe, but there are more important things now. Let's turn off the Internet connection and get started!
