It can be difficult to say goodbye at the end of a great experience. I'm just back from watching Breaking Dawn Part 2 at the cinema and endings are very much on my mind right now. Part of me is happy the story has been fully brought to life on the big screen, but another part is sad. The media hype associated with this movies can really suck you in. We've lived with the hype for years now, saw the same with the Harry Potter movies too.
There are no more Harry Potter adventures, no more will-she-won't-she Bella angst. It's over and done. We can move on. Yet the temptation to linger, watch them all again, is strong. The old can be comfortable, safe. For example, I love to re-read the novels on my keeper shelves, submerge myself in Star Trek movie marathons & return to my favorite holiday spot again and again.
But I also love to read new books, by new to me authors, experience a new movie (Skyfall was pretty awesome), and explore other parts of the world I can reach by any means possible.
The lure of making new friends is powerful but that never means I've forgotten, or could forget, the old. Some memories stay with you forever. As this is my last post on the Lady Scribes Blog I wanted to wish everyone the best: the best stories, the best new friends, the best futures they can have.
I'll never forget you. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year. Have a happy life from now until infinity.
