Blister in the Sun (farefell to a friend)

This is a little bit of a tribute to my good friend, Nick Masters.

Today, him and his family leave Toti (where he has have lived for 33 years), they head off to the UK (stopping in Cape Town first for a few days)

A new chapter in their lives await there.

I am happy for them and this amazing opportunity they have before them.  Plus loads of our friends (from Toti) are that side now.  So they land in a network of people already.

I write this with sadness and appreciation. Nick has been and will always be an amazing friend.  I write this to celebrate our friendship so far.  I am sad to see him go, but truth be told from like 2001 – 2008, i lived in other towns (in South Africa) and didnt see him much.  Then for 3 years when I lived in the UK (2009 – 2011), gosh we saw each other loads.

From sharing similar tastes in music / back in std 7, we sang along word for word to Violent Femmes (we still do) / to water skiing shenanigans / to loads of beer (breweries would be proud of us) / walking to streets of London after nights out, hmm were we walking straight? / singing on the tubes (maybe we sang with dutch courage… haha) / to our recent shared hobby: geocaching / watching bands / tenpin bowling (ah all the usual life stuff) / even some profound conversations

I am proud to have Nick as a friend and totally gonna miss that guy.  But thankfully we live in a world that we can communicate easily,

Nick, Godspeed dude in your new adventure!

Keep me space in your spare room.  Coming to visit soon.  And keep aside a few caches for us to find.

Rock on!
