Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies, Farewell and adieu you ladies of Spain. For we’ve received orders for to sail back to Boston, And so, nevermore, shall we see you again. – Quint1
As usual, I’m leaving things to the very last minute. Partly because that’s just how I am and partly because I don’t really want to believe that Hi is going away. I know I haven’t posted anything here recently, as demonstrated by this image from three years ago, but I will always have a special place in my heart for Hi. From the beginning I felt a certain affinity for the people and stories that I found here. So much so that I overcame my normal introvert tendencies and reached out to a few members of the community and met in person. I’d like to thank all the members of the Hi team for making that possible.
As we all move on from this island in the ocean of the internet I wish you fair wind an following seas.
For those of you wondering, the quote is from the movie Jaws (1975) which was partly shot on the island of Martha’s Vineyard where the photo was taken. ↩
