Hello Bye Bye

A wave, a flip of the hair, a strut into the distance. Or a quick dismissal, followed by a flurry of explanatory emojis and maybe an ‘x’ and an ‘o’. Kisses, tears, foreboding, a prelude to yearning – goodbyes, the deliberate kind, are a versatile bunch. Then there’s the things we unknowingly bid farewell to every day: time, memories and cells may leave us unceremoniously, but their departure is a long and understated affair. Before you start wondering who you’ll see next, think about what you have to let go of now. Relish the sweetness of separation, make your own way, and remember that nothing you have encountered ever really leaves you.
