Separation Anxiety

Posted on June 9, 2011


Today, after six years, I signed the paperwork.

The top of the paper read “separation form” and as I sign at the bottom, a wave of emotion came over me.

As the pen scraped off the edge of the line, finishing the last letter of my last name with a last flourish, I felt something in my eye.

Dust.  I’d been moving boxes and papers all day and making sure that the room was clean.

Separation Form.  Official.

I’m done with the school.
