“I was trying to feel some kind of good-bye. I mean I’ve left schools and places I didn’t even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don’t care if it’s a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it. If you don’t you feel even worse.” -- J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
Not wanting to leave without knowing it, I am taking a cue from Holden Caulfield: I know I am leaving. I think my blog has run its course, so I am saying good-bye. Thank you to everyone who has read my blog. It has been so much fun getting to know all of you. I hope to still stop in and read others' blogs when I can, but my own blog will disappear shortly. It's time for me to discover what is next around the bend.
“What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.” -- Jack Kerouac, On the Road
