I’m a little sad today.
School is starting this week and I find myself feeling lonely and left out. There are new people, strangers, in my desk at work. Freshman are taking my seats in lecture halls. It’s as if I was never there.
I always wanted to avoid being one of those people who are constantly reflective and live in the past… eff that. Just for a moment or two, I’m going to wallow and grieve for what I’m missing out on, what I had and what I’ve lost.
It makes me think of that Rolling Stones song, Ruby Tuesday.
“She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and goes
Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…”
