Not this year

It was first mentioned as a possibility in December. There was a job and it looked promising. There was an application and a cover letter. A follow up. Hope. A long wait.

And nothing.

The course was altered a few weeks ago. A different job would be okay. That one from December was too perfect, anyway. The transition would have been too simple. It fit too well. Those are never the jobs that you get. They're never even the one that you're interviewed for.

This plan seemed reasonable. Feasible. Real. I got a little bit carried away, thinking about how things would change and progress with the absence of deadlines and time zones. There was a guarantee of movement. Perhaps I would find myself blissfully happy. Maybe the end result would be me crumpled into a crying heap on the floor. Forward, regardless.

It seemed like a real, honest possibility.

The Coach moving back.

The light dims and the possibility recedes a little bit each day. The timing isn't quite right. The stars aren't exactly aligned.

The fantasy was nice.

I'm not sure he's ready to give up on his dreams, anyway.

And I wouldn't want him to.
