Goodbye to friends
I have been spoilt the last four weeks and made to feel special by my friends and colleagues as I move into retirement. Last Saturday my dear friend Joyce organized a party for my outside of work friends - friends I worked with in Nigeria 37 years ago; friends from the time I spent in China; and long time Gabriola friends. There was a wonderful feeling of community and celebration. Graham and Mike played music and there was a poignant moment when we all sang “those were the days!”
One of the goals of our trip will be to connect with people, to learn about their lives and make new friends.
