My family is originally from the New England area, but I grew up in southwestern
Ohio, and it's all I know. I've never had the itch to travel, or to move, unless I had to..
My parents still live in the same house that I grew up in, and I can still find marks on
my old bedroom walls from long ago whose meaning have been forgotten over the

So anyway, a few weeks ago I met a woman at the time clock at work who I hadn't
had the opportunity to speak to before. She was clocking out as I was clocking in, but
we had the chance to exchange a few words before I got to work. The more we talked,
the more we found that we had in common; we were both trained in scientific/technical
fields, we both landed somewhere unexpected, and we both felt that we were working
below our abilities (and surrounded by the wrong people). In passing, she loaned me
a favorite book of hers that she felt I would enjoy, that she couldn't share with anyone
else. (No, it's of scientific nature--not what you're thinking! )

A couple of weeks later I ran into her, and she mentioned that she was planning a move
south, to an area where she used to live. She felt that I was the only person
at work who she could tell, or who would care. Long story short, I asked her to lunch,
for a chat before she left. As I expected, we chatted non-stop--unusual for me!

I'm the type of person who socializes little, but I get curious about certain people,
and I feel the need to satisfy that curiosity. This time I may have the opportunity
to see her again, but most likely I won't.

It's not like I'm heartbroken; I hardly knew the woman! But, I still feel that I've missed

Unlike me, she's the travelling type; she's been to more cities in the past few years
than I have been in my whole life. She thinks nothing of packing up and moving at
the drop of a hat. I, on the other hand, dread the thought of even the shortest move.

Anybody else ever been in a similar situation, where you have to leave, or watch someone
leave, when that someone has just recently grabbed your interest?

She is in your life for a reason, go for it and have fun.

Nah, she's kinda busy packing and such...Maybe one day when the wanderlust hits
her again....You never know!

People come and go in our lives for no apparent reason. As the years passed I stopped wondering why and now merely enjoy knowing them. After all isn't that what life is people and new experiences.

Howevr, I would ask her if she would like to stay in email contact once she has moved, she might enjoy it.

I think it shocked her that I'd be interested in staying in contact!
She has all my info; she'll contact me, I suppose, if she's so inclined...It didn't seem
that she was all that interested in sharing an email address, or didn't have one yet...

It IS true that people come and go; it's happened many times before, and will no doubt
happen again. You just hate to see 'em leave too soon!

Don't ya just hate that? You find someone you like, you just get to know them a little, and POOF! They're gone.....
Back to the drawing board!

She said no;
Baby you come home to me

She said
Ramblin boy why don't ya settle down
Boston aint your kinda town

loved that song......
Good luck, maybe once she gets settled in she will contact you. Ya never know....

the best part is the reaching out, and the connecting, even if only temporary. I'd be
kicking myself if I hadn't tried....
