(Ian McEwan, On Chesil Beach).
Life is made of plans and dreams. A misunderstanding, a crime, a mistake, an accident, a disease, and they are gone or your life changes for ever.
I think of A, who always had "fiebre de horizontes". I think of M, who knew how to clear out the dust of such fevers. And of S, who fulfilled his own in a two-year-enterprise: he traveled by bike from Ushuaia to Bering Sea, and knows how to teach and defend the value of dreams.
Life is also made of phases. And transition is hard. C'est la vie.
