Over the time we were in New York City, the apartment we were in became more and more empty with the weeks. Then I realised that Mummy was there to close down the apartment that she had lived in for a long time. This was her goodbye.
So the day came when we left. The rooms were all empty except for our suitcases.
I knew she was sad. But she was also excited to go home. We were going on the Queen Mary 2, sailing towards new horizons.
I’m glad I shared these last weeks in New York City with her.
This was our last sunset from the terrace. 1 October, 2012 – a glimpse of “heaven”
May’s comment: A final “goodbye”, a farewell to a chapter, closing doors for another to open – all the clichés plus the best one – being with my best friend. I was so glad Miss Darcy was with me along with my sister. Miss Darcy also marks a new chapter in my life.
