- These words were left by one of our guests in our physical guestbook
Nope, I didn’t cry. Ivan says it’s because I have channelled it into being perfectionistically angsty about event tech hiccups. I think I’d feel better if I could just get rid of this feeling that I have but I don’t quite know how…
Maybe it’s because as part of the event organising team, I kept seeing the whole thing from a more detached perspective due to all the running around, answering queries, talking to guests etcetc. That I really didn’t have the time for my own goodbye.
Well, we will still be here packing all the stuff for about 2 weeks…
This isn’t a proper post-event roundup post, but just a few words to attempt to log how I feel at this moment.
Btw. we chose this song as our final song during the ceremony:
So kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me like you’ll never let me go
‘Cause I’m leaving on a jet plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Oh, babe, I hate to go
Now the time has come to leave you
One more time, oh, let me kiss you
And close your eyes and I’ll be on my way
- Leaving on a Jet Plane, as sung by Chantal Kreviazuk
The crowd found it moving (teary eyes were spotted) and maybe the next time you hear it, you’ll think of us.
