In the mood for a little Andrea Bocelli this morning, I played "Con te Partiro" from my iTunes library. I love this song more than words can adequately portray. I do not know a stitch of Italian, yet the first time I heard the song in the late '90's I felt a connection. This song sounds like goodbye. Goodbyes are hard, even if they are good for you. Their memories are bittersweet.
So there I sat with my laptop, eyes closed and tears welling, when I feel something not a little fluffy at my hip. Sophie stared intently at the computer that was producing the noise, before closing her eyes and beginning to purr. I doubt she knows any more Italian than I do…but then, hearts need very little translation.
