The 8th Day of the Feast is an amazing and wonderful day that represents the future of the world, the future of all mankind, our destiny, why we were born, so many wonderful things to come! The future that it represents is a wonderful thing, but it is so difficult to say goodbye. It's difficult to have one last hurrah, one last moment together, one last meal, one last cappuccino in Italy when you know you have to let everyone go, you have to say your goodbyes, you have to give one last hug. And then what if you miss a hug? What if you forget someone and then you don't see them again for a very long time? These things go through my mind, and no matter how tired I was at the end of the night, I always want to hang on a little while longer.
We said a quick goodbye to Michael and Lauren who had to leave for Rome
After sunset we had some coffee with friends, dinner with a wonderful family, and then spent our last few hours getting some advice from those who have been there and done that, and fighting off sleep knowing very well that the next morning would come way too early. What a wonderful time!
The Longest (and shortest) Goodbyes
