Thank God I am traveling out of the US, even if I am missing the Fourth of July holiday with my son. At least I am far far away from her.

Greetings from Lausanne

A pic I took with my iPhone from the train between Zurich and Lausanne. This is a view of Lake Geneva. I am traveling for business over the Fourth of July holiday. I really need the time away to think about things and get my head on straight. I will be here for a week but I wouldn't mind staying longer.
It is so beautiful here with the lake and surrounding mountains and woods. I would move here if I could. It would be a nice change and a chance to start again someplace new; someplace where there are no memories of my ex-wife and ex-girlfriend. My international co-workers have been the best. The Swiss are very nice and welcoming.
The company I work for has a division located in Ballaigues and that is where I will be until Friday. Then it's another long flight back to the U.S. I'm not sure if I am feeling jet lag. If I am it is overshadowed by the emotional events of the past three weeks.
It took me more than a day to realize I was in another country. I kept walking around looking at all the buildings and thinking to myself, "Wow, the buildings in this city have a large European influence."
Well, duh, I'm in Europe. The fact that everyone is walking around speaking mostly French should have been a big clue. After the second day it started to sink in. I keep thinking about a song by Alter Bride "Watch Over You".
"You say you care for me
But hide it well
How can you love someone
And not yourself?"
I don't know. I don't know what to think, except that the biggest part of me is glad the relationship is finally over. Over for good. I can't go back. Not again. It was slowly killing me. Eating me up from the inside out. Like a cancer.
"And who is gonna save you
When I'm gone?
And who'll watch over you
And I will give you strength
When you're not strong
Who'll watch over you
When I'm gone away?
Snow is on the ground
Winters come
You long to hear my voice
But I'm long gone"
