And with footsteps echoing away like a faint distant memory, we have gone.
We left with much hurry and flurry, with only one last almost-forgotten backward glance toward the place that has been our home for three years. This home has seen us through friendships, through new jobs, through marriage and through redefinition of self.
We leave this apartment, but…
I wonder when it will hit me that we have left the home that has been our home for the past decade of our lives.
Goodbye, Santa Barbara. See you in another life.
