I’ve had this thought in the back of my mind, Oh, I’m leaving right when spring arrives, maybe I’ll delay my departure. This has been coupled with the fantasy of going to Sicily or going to someplace warm dancing in the back of my head. And I purchased my ticket on points so that I can always change it. Sipping that box did in fact delineate the beginning of the end.  I am starting to wind things down and I do feel lighter this morning.
