This is it Ė the moment of departure. The engines are firing, the farewells have been made and Iím strapped aboard Emirates flight 006 with my heart in my mouth. ďAnd ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.Ē How truly those words now resonate. Farewell my love. I know itís only for a few months but right now it feels like an eternity. Itís not just the time apart; itís the end of an era. A new one beckons I know but right now all I know is I already miss you terribly.
