It only took three hours to drive from the sea into the middle of the mountains. We went hiking and looked down on lots of trees and the valley.
At 9 pm, the town was quiet, the stars were bright, the air fresh. We sat outside for a while with some red wine, talked about our own travels and places we want to live and we do live, about coming and leaving.
Marion and I haven’t lived in the same area again since highschool. Years ago, we all moved into different directions. She lives in New York now. It was really nice to spend a holiday together, have some time. There are so many things that come with moving places and things we have in common: the longing to be somewhere else. saying goodbye. saying hello. flying on our own. having more friends in places around the world than where we live. making new homes in new places. finding music and the little things everywhere we go.
