And when I leave (just about every town in Germany) on my two-wheeled vehicle, my beating heart (at about 80% effort, I hope) is warmed by a little "bye-bye" before I head onto open roads.
I mean, think of US roads. Maybe some states tell us that we are leaving, but things are pretty much focused on welcomes. How about the care and kindness that goes into a very nice little goodbye? It's a beautiful thing, and I always note the warm embrace of communitas from the, um...community.
Americans: Let's think about this. I know it exists here and there, but what about a nice "We'll Miss You" for our towns?
