Eve of retreat, early spring

//Eve of retreat, early spring

Eve of retreat, early spring

It’s the eve of departure for seven days of retreat in Portugal.
What is there to say?
The day was brilliant with sun.
Had lunch with a 91-year-old friend, who is leaving Paris in a few days after many years of living here. I’ll miss her, thinking I may never see her again. Or maybe I will.
There is no way to know, and nothing to know.
The four seasons are all included in this early spring day.
