Rain or Shine on a Sunny Day

My balcony consistently brings me love. Rain or shine, it never disappoints. I have six days left here. And with each one, I find myself sitting out here and just staring. My gaze carries me far and near, while Taylor sits next to me, sometimes gnawing on a bone I bought for him from Mollie Stone. 

It’s grey today. 
And like any other day, 
I’ve a feeling the grey 
Will go away.

So I just sang a song inside my head, an old one that predated me by a generation.

“We’ll meet again, someday.
I don’t know where.
I don’t know when.
But we’ll meet again on a sunny day.”*

A week later, I drove back to Chicago from the Bay Area with my best dog and my best friend, leaving everything behind. I held my ruby stone in my hand, and safely tucked it away in my pocket, never letting it go.

And then just like that almost a full year later, I did. I threw it away, and never saw it again.

“We’ll Meet Again”, by Vera Lynn (1939)
