My friend Kyle has left. She was such an awesome girl. I really am going to miss her. All of us here are. She gave me a sweet gift when she left: a small keepsake with the inscription, "My friend knows the song of my heart, and sings it to me when I can't remember". This is really special to me because last week when our friend Colin was preparing to leave 4 or 5 of us stayed up all night until we drove up to Cadillac Mountain to watch the sunrise. During the night they asked me to sing them songs. We sat around in the common room singing all sorts of songs, some of the others sang too, even Colin! Kyle told me that one of her favorite things in the world was being sung to, and I replied that one of my favorite things to do was to sing to people. That's one thing I really miss about home, I don't get to sing to anyone anymore. I have no Kait, Eden and Ezra to sing to sleep at night. I hope Kyle has made it to Vermont (she's stopping on the way to see Colin) and New Jersey safely. And I hope she has fun at Niagara!
