End of a chapter

It’s Friday, July 30, 2010.  A group of students came together to participate in a crazy experiment.  Some left after a week and some new ones joined in for the second week.  I spent two weeks trying to figure out my life.  In the process, I’ve connected with many people on a social level.  We shared laughter; we shared hardship.  Some were peasant and others were dreadful.  How do strangers come together and embrace each other like friends?  They just do.  How do you part ways after such a short time?  We all need to get back to our lives.  There’s something surreal about all of this.  I guess I’m waking up from a dream.

In the distance from this lab, I hear jolly music from the iBand.  They are celebrating life.  It’s not a celebration for the group of strangers who came together.  I would say it’s more of a farewell.  It’s not a farewell for us, but I would like to think it is.  There’s a bitter-sweetness I taste from the food.  Is it the burnt taste from the BBQ or just my imagination?  All good things must come to an end.
