"Every shut-eye ain't sleep and every good-bye ain't gone."
~ African American Proverb ~
Goodbyes come in varying degrees.
Some are sudden and unexpected.
Some are lingering and sad.
Some are sharp,
And some absolute.
But the one thing all goodbyes have in common is the gateway feature,
That opens to whatever comes next.
I understand that goodbye here is hello there and that all of life is a continuum.
