Time flies

Even though I have quite some time left here in Spain I feel like a chapter is slowly closing. Just a few moments ago I said goodbye to one of my dearest friends here in Donosti. There is melancholy in the air. It is not just me, I can see it all around. Our time here comes to an end.

What remains are the memories. And I have to admit there are some amazing episodes we have had together. What remains are the conversations. We have talked quite a lot. What remains is the spirit. We have all grown, grown together. What remains is friendship. We have connected on a deep level. What remains is the music. The songs that will always make us remember.

But as time flies we also have to understand that there is not much time to sulk. We now have the opportunity to write the next chapter, we can carry on. We can take what we have learned, we can spread the happiness that we experienced. There is further room to grow.

We all have dreams and things we want to achieve in life. Sometimes I feel like my time here is like taking a break from the straight road I was on before. It is a time to reconsider my ideals and objectives. Admittedly, I have learned a lot about myself and the world.

I already understand that there will be a time, not so far away, where I will return to my dear hometown, to my family, to my friends, to university and to studying. This makes me content because I have found a lot of motivation in these last days. I want to get back to working on my projects, I want to learn new things! I will be back on the road but maybe now it will not be as straight as before and I might turn left instead of right.

But as for right now, I can enjoy the rest of my time here even though I know there will be more farewells and inevitably my time here will also come to an end. Also, I do know that sometimes this is easier said than done as there is this melancholy I was already talking about. However, my idea of life is not about the future, nor is it about the past, I would like my thoughts to be centered in the presence!

I have probably listened to this song a few hundred times here in Donosti. Now it has become a memory, it causes a feeling of nostalgia. It is a symbol, a symbol for out time here.
