Acme, I hope you have a camera. I know it may not seem this way now, but later you will want to see again what you saw from your windows every day, and on your walks.

I'm sorry you were not able to do early farewells. Now, however, you can be a powerful magnet to invite work friends OUT of the environment for lunches or coffees. Even the occasional postcard will encourage them more than you can know! :-)

There are folks there who looked to you as a mentor and role model. With some of them, you know you played that role. Others would surprise you. ;-)

There are also folks there who will be having deep grief at what they can only grasp as a sudden departure. I hope there's enough listening resource among them to absorb it, and I wish you all the listening you need in your own transition afterwards. One day at a time.

All the best from one who's been there,

~Susan
