Day 90. I'm still here. Lenny is teaching me that leaving shouldn't be that hard. We don't talk about my dilemma at all, in fact, what we talk about whenever he's here is his dream of traveling the world. You know how he knows about "the world"? His father used to be a seaman. On his last birthday, Lenny got a globe the size of a standard basketball. Lenny often says: "Aalis kung makakaalis." If you can leave, leave. Simple, right? I ask about his parents, people he will leave behind. His answer: "Pwede namang umalis nang hindi nang-iiwan."
