Before she called a cab for the train station, she walked to the bridge. Last goodbyes to her river, to her trees. Last goodbyes to a place that would continue to haunt her days. But she took it in, locked it in her memories. The capacity to change flowed through her bloodstream. Hope filled her with grace. The long road ahead may be daunting, but it called to her, and she listened. Farewell to the past. Farewell, farewell, farewell.
