I just got off the phone with him. I really can't wrap my mind around the fact that he'll be so far away. I feel kind of bad because he's always been real dependent on me, and in the last few years I've kind of been backing off out of self preservation. So now that he's leaving I feel all weird about it.
I'm also worried. He's going to be alone on a farm in the country with no tv or maybe even a phone. I told him he needs to make sure he at least has a dog with him or something (I'm sure my uncle has a few). A pet is the best way to fight off loneliness as far as I'm concerned. Plus, an animal can alert you if somethings not right, like another animal lurking around or something.
I know its also exciting for him. Its a chance to clear his mind and start deciding what he really wants out of life. And he's ready to do whatever it takes. I hope he likes it.
He won't be completely alone, he will have my aunt and uncle, and a couple of cousins living in the same town. They're all a little bit off in one way or another, but I know they'll look out for him.
Its just a weird feeling, none of us have ever been very far away from each other. He should be back in a few weeks though to get some of his stuff. At least that's the tentative plan. Its hard to get a straight answer out of my uncle sometimes.
I guess I'm just feeling melancholy.
