Never far away
Today was both a beautiful and productive day. The sun was out and it’s considerably warmer than the typical rainy 40’s and 50’s since I had arrived. It seems that Skanderbeg square is the happening place to be on Saturday mornings. There were all kinds of people, merchant tents, and even a marching band out there.
I was able to start catching up on some US projects that have been lingering, and to those that I still have some pending items with, know that I am working hard to get them completed. Besides working and a little admiring of the day, I went for another run but decided to give my knee a few days off after today. Somehow the lock of my door decided to have a mind of its own and stop working despite getting a new card made. It was kind of funny at first but I had to wait around in my room for awhile before it was fixed.
Josh really made my day today because he put together a little video with pictures of the two of us, as well as photos of my family and friends. It really touched me and I’m so glad that he put it together for me to be able to watch whenever I get lonely over here. The background music was a great song – “Never Far Away” by Rush of Fools – which was written by the band for their families when they’re on tour. The lyrics were really fitting:
I close my eyes and try to see
See you right in front of me….
…. It’s like I never left at all
And all the world feels so small….
….Oh, oh, oh, oh, you’re never far away
So to Josh, my family and friends: Even though I may be miles away, you’re never far away from me.
