Time to leave

As the last week of my 6 1/2 month assignment at Harrison comes to an end I marvel once again at how quickly time flys. For the first time, though, I've likened this departure to dying. The end of the post below may come clear now having read this.
My wife always says, "leave a place/position when your riding high." And that is exactly what is happening here. This has been a fabulous assignment with terrific staff and so with the "end" in sight we all are feeling a sense of loss and remorse. Regardless of the goodbyes, come back to see us, and don't be a stranger comments, we all know that for most of us this is the last time we will encounter each other and so we depart. No I don't think I'll be pushing up grass, but still the sense of loss is the same.

But isn't that what life is about?

hey rel :) i enjoyed reading your post and thought that it was interesting that you included all the nuances that we all 'know' but are not spoken aloud, about the leaving and knowing we probably will never meet again stuff. i have the impression that you're a great guy to work with and they will honestly miss you!!
i loved your magpie, glad i scrolled down to see if i had missed anything! i did think it was odd that d.d. was dying and then you were reassuring us you weren't ready to push grass up anytime soon!
did you ready anything you found worth sharing on another post??
