Yes, I am sad today. My partner works a job which takes him out of town for six months each year. I am taking him to the airport in four hours, and then we will begin our six months apart.
With phones, Facebook, Skype, and all the other technological advances these days, we will still be able to keep in touch, but it isn't the same. There is no warm body to hold during a phone conversation, and a picture just isn't the same as a hug.
So, goodbye for now my best friend. I look forward to many cuddles six long months from now.
