a little farewell note, bon voyage and i long to see you soon again

fried ricegaaton gbrunomantraaugust 144 

this place already seems a bit different now that you left. we are gypsies after all, restless gypsies, i so understand your need to travel, to search, to grow.  imagine we know each other for 6 years now, and in those 6 years we have travelled more than 10 countries together, spent an uncountable amount of nights in different hotel rooms, lost our orientation in foreign cities, and found the most amazing, magical corners while being lost, enjoyed plenty of delicious home cooked dinners, and ridiculous amounts of sweets, me with the additional wine and you with your glass of water and a smoke, talked talked and talked, into late night hours when i am almost falling asleep~midsentence, smoking too much, giggled, laughed and cried and we have danced, oh yes we have danced, and we will keep on dancing one way or the other right?

now your teddy bears have been washed and packed in your suitcase, and you are somewhere above the clouds, heading for your new destination. land softly as we say and i think and feel that i will meet you there.

Reading your words, I was thinking that 'yes, I want to read the rest of that book'.
Will you write it?

Friends come and go out of our lives, but the most loved ones will never be forgotten. They leave an impression in our minds which remain long after they are gone.That is the power of love.

oh Guud! det kändes detta inlägget! allt av olika känslor. så fint, och du såå fin! och cigaretter har jag busat med i sommar också, i ledig stunder i en undanskymd vrå av trädgården. når måste man ju busa med..lite för lite gypsy här annars antar jag :) och inte hunnit maila fast jag vill. ont i huvud och rygg men lugn idag följer jag med i dina tankar en stund..

helgkramar Lycke
(dina kommentarer är ju för roliga att läsa när prickarna saknas..hilarious ibland för jag läser lätt fel också ;)))

When I read the words 'restless gypsies' I knew I must read your blog from the beginning...you are a tremendous writer. I am restless and a gypsy at heart. If only I could go back and do it all over again ~

I agree with Lilli....please write the next chapter when you meet up again.

Vilken vacker kärleksförklaring till en vän. "Hejdå", mitt liv är alldeles för fullt av dem just nu. Går runt i ett konstant vemod med tårar som knackar på.
