Over the course of me visiting back home, we developed a pattern with each other.
If I was visiting, and we managed to spend time together in town, I would park my bike next door to your house (because I had family that lived next door). At the end of the night, we would end up as the last two, and I would "walk you home" and you would "walk me to my bike." We would circle the blocks and many times as we could. Kiss in the street. Hands under clothes. Fingers encircled.
I left you one night (or many?) at the end of your driveway, where you reluctantly slipped away from lips, and towards your parents back door. As we reached out to each other, sheet one more kiss, you called out, as loudly as to dared, "Goodnight, Juliet!" We never liked saying goodbye. But always knew we had to. And we knew we were being torn away from each other. Circumstantially.
What if we weren't? #romeoandjuliet

I’m sad to hear we lost Ric Ocasek. Rest In Peace.
But it did bring up a classic memory of when I met him. I was in New York back around 96 or so. I was asked to go to a small club to check out this band, Nada Surf, with James Diener. James was the CEO and President of A&M Octone Records (who eventually had me design the album art for the Maroon 5 debut album). We go into this small dark club. There is a booth we head towards that has Ric Ocasek, his wife Paulina Porizkova, some members of Nada Surf and someone else. I get introduced and we sit down at the booth with everyone. Before they all start talking, I am politely asked if I could leave them, so they could discuss business. And that was it. Ha. I said nice meeting you. Got up, grabbed a drink and watched the opening bands. Nada Surf came on. Was right around the time their album High/Low came out or was coming out that Ric Ocasek produced. I remember only knowing that song, Popular, at the time. Haha well that was the memory I had this morning of when I briefly met Ric Ocasek. Your amazing music will live on. RIP. ⭐️ This poster was created for Nada Surf and their show with Rogue Wave and King Of France by GIGART on Tuesday, February 14, 2006 at The Blue Note in Columbus, MO. The poster was created using the lyrics from the Nada Surf song, Do It Again, on their album The Weight Is A Gift. Here are the lyrics below:
When you find that person who "gets you", hold them tight.
I met @gugonis 6 weeks ago when we both did Yoga Teacher Training with @powerliving , and realised that not only are we likeminded in so many things from travel, lifestyle and goals... we had also lived two streets away from each other in Manly for the past year, knew some of the same people, went to the same cafes and bars locally... yet somehow we had never met.
Over the 4 intensive weeks of our course, we were there for each other through the ups and downs, and were a support when the going was tough. Both of us with our crazy busy personal lives threatening to encroach in on our course days.
Agata, grateful I met you, thank you for being my crutch when I was needing you.
Gutted I'm now losing you to Canada and your next adventure but I look forward to our paths crossing again.
Thank goodness for technology so I haven't lost you for good 😁.
