On this day two years ago I was about to begin a new cycle of life: it came in the form of a new home. Today, I am beginning another journey, but this time alone. After eight and a half years all I can say is thank you. Thank you for showing me the bright side of life. Thank you for kicking my ass when it was necessary. Thank you for having made me laugh every day. And thank you for having loved me the way I am. May the Midsummer fires show you the way to what you are looking for.
