I'll go out with my old friends.
We'll find fun little restaurants
places to dance and sing
and quiet coffee shops to talk and listen.
I'll join a club.
Learn to knit or sew
or read a book a month
and make new friends.
And I'll take up hobbies.
Shopping for antiques
biking down the side streets
I'll finally start that book I've always wanted to write.
And I really will go to the gym three times a week.
I'll find new recipes and modify old ones.
I'll keep in touch with family
maybe do some introspection.
Even if I do miss you all the while.
