I guess that wouldn't work.
Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes.
I know what I need. I need more hellos.
~Charles M. Schulz

Hasn't this A to Z Challenge been an experience?
At the start, it seemed to stretch endless before us. How would we do it? But we did.
We made new friends along the way and said Hello to old ones.
And we died.
Yes, we are no longer the same person who started this trek.
That person drifted away day by day until here we stand, the product of our words and the words of others ...
and the product of the lessons we took away from those words.
To part is sad. But to stay together yet be distant in our hearts at the same time is tragic.
A-Z 2013 is over. But we are still here, together in the blogverse. Let us remind ourselves:
No distance of place or lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each other's worth.
Can miles truly separate you from friends?
If you want to be with someone you care for, aren't you already there?
What have you taken away from this year's A-Z Challenge?
"Don't cry because it's over.
Smile because it happened."
~Theodor Seuss Geisel
