Another farewell brunch.

We have gotten very good at this - the wish-you-wells for dear friends headed on to new adventures, new cities, new dreams. I had put so much thought into the challenges of marriage, motherhood, career; into the big milestones of life that were carefully preempted and prepped for. These are the breath-takers I had overlooked: the text from a friend facing loss, a once-familiar place no longer familiar, the air hanging after a goodbye hug.

Always, always, such good fortune to have friends worth missing.
