Mibes: Good morning!
Me: Good morning! (We hug for a moment.)
Mibes: How’s life?
Me: I’m a bit sleepy, a bit groggy, but OK, thanks and you?
Mibes: I’m OK. Thanks. Glad to be here. In just a couple of weeks our time together here has become one of the best parts of my day.
Me: Yes, same here. It’s always good to see you. We’ve been on the planet together, but haven’t seen each other much, until now.
Mibes: Now, this moment. Time always passing. Reminds me of that old John Denver song: What a friend we have in time, gives us children, makes us wine. Tells us what to take or leave behind.
Me: I haven’t thought about that for a long time. It kind of goes along with this Chinese proverb though: An inch of time on the sundial is worth more than a foot of jade.
Mibes: I wish I had more time this morning, but I’ve got to head out for a meeting.
Me: Good to see you. Good to be with you. Make the most of your moments.Mibes: You too. (We embrace and then head our separate ways.)
