Fare thee well as ye goes on thy way…

Partings are difficult and preparing to go away for even a short period of time does put a bit of an emotional strain on one. Relationships are built, friendships formed and all of a sudden, all that has to be left behind to embark on something new. Bidding farewell is hard.

Perhaps that’s why we say farewell instead of goodbye, and take our leave instead of upping and going. I’ve always preferred the idea of saying something ‘fare thee well as ye goes on thy way’ instead of a plain goodbye but may sound a tad archaic so the simple farewell would have to do. One does not focus on the parting but instead extends well-wishes to the other party and bids them to be well on the journey and beyond. Same goes for the person leaving – one bids farewell and hopes that those at home would also be well on their own journeys.

And thus the farewells have begun and I’m starting to realise what I’ll miss when I’m gone but then again – it’s going to be a short couple of months. Let’s all fare well as we go on our way – assured in the hope that we shall meet again.

This message could perhaps be said better with music so here’s Apocalyptica with Farewell.

about the brushhead

had a head like a brush (it's more like an egg now). seeks to sweep through thought and faith with that brush. tries to wax philosophical but often forgets to wax off. trying to be good brush to all, while discerning what kind of brush he's meant to be.
