Quotation of the Week (46/09) - Farewells

Knowing when you will see someone the next time makes farewell easier. Not knowing is terrible. Your mind either fools you into thinking it’s soon, or deceives you into depression through convincing you that it’s ages away. - D.G. -
Today's quote does not come from a well-known classic author. Possibly it comes from an author-to-be. These sentences have remained in my mind for a week now! I read them in a personal news-letter written by a young man recently going off to university studies in England. I know that he knows what he is talking about, because he has been growing up in a family who have been moving back and forth between Sweden and remote places in Asia ever since he was a little boy. Now he is off on his own to face new challenges.

His thoughts are certainly true. GB goes off to NZ for six months each year. I miss him but knowing when he is coming back seems to make it OK somehow.
