From the last entry in The Notebook (English edition pub. 2010):

"The motto says that all things, good and bad, must pass, and that fits like a glove the work that is ending here and the person who did it...Farewells are always best when briefly bidden. This is no opera aria into which can now be inserted an interminable addio, addio." - Jose Saramago

Are you off from Seattle? Over the pond and beyond perhaps?

Nope, still here for the time being, until October. Hoping for some incarnation of summer. But I do feel sad that Saramago is "beyond"...
