As I type this, I am sitting in a small cafe in Palo Alto called Leonidas catching up on e-mail before I catch the train to San Francisco Airport. My time in California has been busy with work, application writing, and meeting friends who I had not seen since I moved back to Ohio in Dec. 2006.
Now that I am preparing to leave, I find the song “Closing Time” playing in my head. The line in the title of this entry is particularly meaningful because I have found so many friends in my travels that sometimes the emotions are almost overwhelming. I do not want to become too emotional in public, so I shall simply say thank you, thank God for you, and merry Christmas to all of my friends who are reading this.
