La Vita Va Avanti

September 19th, 2006

It’s hard to leave Seattle, even if I’m going to be in Italy. I’m going to be in my favorite place in the world, but that doesn’t mean people’s lives here will be on hold. In Seattle, the tangueros will still dance, my Italian language group will still get together for dinner, my friends will have parties, two of my best friends will turn 30 and have big celebrations, new relationships will form, life in the U.S. will go on – without me. All of this dawned on me last night when some friends were making plans to go to a big tango thing together – after I’m gone. It made me feel very sad that I won’t be able to join them. So, I’m a little bummed out today. I have also been a bit of a slacker in the getting-ready-to-move-to-Italy department. Maybe it’s time for a little piece of chocolate.

    come una danza, la vita avanza

    You will miss out on things in the US – but just imagine what all of them will be missing out on in your life! You are doing what most people only dream about. I bet it’s them who are jealous of you!

    It’s better to have lived your dream than to keep it in a fantasy. Then you will have no regrets; no thoughts of “what if” and you will have an experience that will be part of a foundation that will serve you in your future….the future you can’t see yet because it hasn’t arrived. I am sure all of your friends will keep in touch and be glued to your journal for exciting news of your adventures. Yes, you will miss people and things that are familiar to you but you also be living an adventure of a lifetime.

    Hang in there! It’s normal to go through stages. You’re following your path and your experiences will make up the fabric of your life. You can never regret that. =)

    Yay!! I am one of those two friends turning 30! Two weeks…ahhhhhh!!! Yes, I know, life as you know it will go on…I remember the same thing when I moved to New York. It’s almost as you expect everything to come to a stand-still when you leave. But, same thing for me, Seattle continued to go on, and it is a little bittersweet. Here is to new adventures for both of us. Me back to the West Coast and sunshine and you to Italia. Cheers my love!
