"There’s a trick to the 'graceful exit.' It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out." — Ellen Goodman

Yes... I like that... Yet sometimes we don't even realize that "exiting" is an option... The photo is beautiful. Thank you.

Nice photo, almost like a river taxi ride on the Chao Phraya River here in Bangkok in the old days...

Is this a goodbye? Please, no!

If it is indeed a leave-taking, your valedictory post is as superb as usual.

Te echaba de menos tambien.

Chao y saludos a la familia.

Greetings from London.
