Glad to see you've figured out how to spend your retirement years.

Congrats.

I am envious.

Even though I've never been to China, you have convinced me that this is just fine.

Extremely. While I truly am done with this assignment, I genuinely like these people and I have a strong sense of accomplishment.

They gave me a beautiful Chinese scroll the other day with a department photo and some touching writing. Quite moving.

And the local staff - believe it or not - bought me a Chinese Postman's bicycle. Perfect.

The last two days have been men coming around for handshakes and women for hugs. And everyone telling me what a positive thing I have done for them.

Bittersweet - oh yea.

Hmm? I guess I've been reincarnated as Terry but without those brains unfortunately. Then again, I am the padawan and he is the master and I am learning.

Completely understandable. You are a great people person and I'm certain you'll be missed over there. But you know, we're in certain places at certain times because someone once told me it was the right timing and it's what was perfect for that time.

And we gotta play it as it lays and deal with what comes. ;)

Gonna miss actually being able to talk to someone in the same time zone as me but thousands of miles away. Enjoy the last weekend Terry.

Whoa! Where'd you come from??
I just snuck in by the back door after curfew, shoes in hand, trying not to make too much noise. :D

What have I missed?
