Alone Again...Naturally

Why is it that no matter how crowded and busy the airport is, it always feels empty right after you dropped a loved one at the departure gate. It doesn't matter how good you are or have had the practice of saying farewells too many times, goodbyes are just hard - sometimes too hard. I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but this is exactly how I feel right now. Mom flew back to Hawaii this morning, and I awfully miss her. As I sit and type this entry, I can't help but sing that song in my head..."Alone again, naturally."


  1. There's no easy goodbye, whether it is non-recurring or not. It's good that you're spending the holidays with your family.

    Gilbert Sullivan's version of Alone Again, Naturally is real good. I remember Ally Mc Beal with the song (though I haven't really followed the series).

  2. it's a wonder how one can be in a room full of people but still feel lonely and alone ano?

    you're right kayni, some goodbyes are hard, even if you do it routinely. hope you get over it fast! you'll be spending your Christmas in Hawaii naman diba? :)

  3. Awww parting is such sweet sorrow ika nga ni Shakespeare.
    Well in a few weeks you will be seeing your family again in Hawaii for a merry festive Christmas celebration. Till then hang in there, Kayni!


  4. i love that song. :)

    anyway, you won't be alone for a long time, right? you'd be spending christmas with your parents the hawaiian (or filipino) way. :)

  5. Goodbyes are always painful, but I am sure you will get over it soon as I know you will soon be visiting her right?

  6. yeah, it's really sad. i only leave the airport when the plane takes off. and in that first minute, you miss the person very much. hay. :)

    hey! let's trade links!

  7. ohhh...hugs dearie. I know your mom misses you so much too. It's good that we now have the internet for speedy communication :)

    So cheers Kayni, you'll never notice she is there in front your doorstep ulit for a visit :)

  8. Helly everyone, thank you so much for all the well wishes and the hugs. I feel a lot better today.

  9. I know what you mean with goodbyes. I've been there and I've said that word a thousand times to different people. There were those who came back after some time but most had just slipped away, and worse they never came back.

    I believe your mom misses you as much as you do too.

    Likewise, just think this time to spend a special time for yourself more.

    Be always well and Happy Wednesday!
