I am at Portland International waiting to board a flight to San Jose.
From there I’m going to the Santa Cruz area to pick up our new roommate, then driving north tomorrow.
Not sure if I’ll pass through Point Reyes Station as planned.
If I do, then I’m going to take a moment to do what I couldn’t do last time I was there. I had kept the mood as light as I could to spare my fiance’s feelings. I bottled up a lot.
Not this time. If I do go, I’m going to stand on the cliffs or one of the beaches and play “Da Stiegen Die Menschen Ans Licht” from Beethoven’s “Cantata on the Death of Joseph II and maybe some Linda Ronstadt. If the tears come, I won’t hold back.
I’m still letting go.
