I'm back at home now. Shelley and Steve are in Montreal. Next week they will be in Halifax. Permanently. Or pretty permanently.
A couple years ago, they moved from the middle of Centretown to Hintonburg.
"Will you still come visit me as much?" Shelley asked.
"Well, I'm sure I'll still see you as much, but I don't know about at your house. It's over the bridge."
I have a thing about bridges. They make what's on the other side seem that much further away.
We did see each other just as much, but I was right. I did not see them at their house nearly as much. Just too far.
Now, now I am kicking myself because there are a lot of bridges between Ottawa and Halifax and it seems very far away.
