The Weight of an Empty Room

There is a strange emptiness right after you have seen someone of to the airport. I came home, and the streets and the rooms were just so quiet. It is a curious thing, to have all the people you love scattered all over the planet. When they leave, or I leave, there is always this silence for a while afterward. I felt overwhelmed for a second, but then I thought about The Pale Blue dot – our little earth, I watched the video with the commentary by Carl Sagan, and I felt safe, and I felt that everyone I love, they really are not that far away after all. ♥
