And with that I mean everything is going as planned. I am in the middle of preparations for my leave, I am doing things slowly, checking and re-checking some of it over and over again. I don`t like unpleasant surprises, not now.
Two weeks ago I was in Croatia, I went to see my relatives and friends; to visit graves of my grandma and uncle; to enjoy warmth of late summer before it is over for this year.
I am seeing some friends in Belgrade, going with them to have a coffee or beer, talking about everything. Some of them asked me if I feel anxious, I am leaving Belgrade forever; how my parents respond to that, etc. I tell them I don`t, my parents and friends know that I will always remember them, I will come to visit, we will stay in contact. But I have a wife in Canada and she is expecting me to come as soon as possible. And that I will not be me if I didn`t take another step forward and change my life in a big way. This is who I am. And, life don`t offer opportunities too often. And, I hate boredom.
So here I am, counting 22 more days before I leave. Enjoying clear blue sky and coldish mornings. Settling things. Talking to San. Preparing. Being ready.
