This image was my goodbye.
At first I was indignant! Here I am! Let me celebrate you dammit!!!!
I looked again, swallowed the lump, and waved. She waved back, a smile filled her face, and an ease came over her body. I remember this feeling. In so many ways she is me, she is mine. Being here in this universe with her people is her happy place. She’s safely in her extroverted social butterfly orbit.
I remember these moments like they were yesterday. Sometimes I wish I could do them all over again; or at least remember them better.
