So here I am in my bedroom on the top of the building at Via de Ginori 13.
I am safe. Just waking up because I am thirsty.
I was at Lorenzo’s house for dinner until 0:10 am. We have said goodbye to each other, me with Francesco, Giovanni, Caterina, and at last Lorenzo!
Taking a lot of pictures with them. The kids ran to me when I came in, and Giovanni gave me a hug. We gave each other a lot of bacio.
Saying goodbye was emotional but not very hard as I might have thought.
They asked me to come back to Italy sometime, and they would be there waiting for me at the house. I promised that I would try my best to do that.
Lorenzo said he felt it hard to think of coming back to SACI for a new academic year without me there. I just feel that we will be close to our hearts even when we’re far apart and wherever I go.
“Keep in touch” we all say that.
Time and distance are going to challenge how true the relationship is.
Just like the love of He and me , it’s almost broken (or already broken, I don’t know), because it couldn’t win the challenge of Time and Distance.
Lorenzo drove me back home at Via de Ginori.
I took a shower before going to bed. I’ve seen my feet. I didn’t cry. They weren’t too bad. But it’s now so hard for me not only to walk but also to move. My moving is stiff and strange and slow. The muscles seem all stiffened. I can’t even sit down.
Anyway, I am safe now in my bedroom and can have a good sleep.
Today has been a very long day and hard. But tomorrow when I wake up, everything will be normal again.
