Retirement...

Someone I have worked closely with the past nine years has announced his retirement today - I knew it was coming, eventually, but I thought it wouldn't be until next year. 

So, I am sad...and very...

the kind of sad where you cry for a few minutes alone and then wipe the tears away quickly so no one will see...

the kind of sad where a song comes on and it fits perfectly (in this case, Auld Lang Syne,...how ironically appropriate was that?)...

the kind of sad where you are so happy for the other person, and yet so sad  for yourself...

the kind of sad where you know you just have to accept this as part of life, and move on...
