Dearest Kilimanjaro,

I’m sorry to say, but I have been cheating on you.

It won’t last forever, I promise.  But somewhere else has captured my attention.

It’s the usual story- timing, circumstance.  I won’t bore you with the specifics.  In any case, I’ll definitely be coming to you, but perhaps later than expected…

Maybe you will find it in your heart to forgive me?

What if I said work is bringing me to Malawi?  What then?  Will you find that even more insulting?

Trust me when I say, there are exciting times ahead.  I feel it right to the core of my insides, tumbling around.  Cartwheels and acrobatics galore.  There is an entire circus going on in there.

I’m sorry to tease you, but maybe one day you will understand.  And anyway, it would be better for us to meet when I am ready for you.  Your altitude, it scares me.  I am not fit enough, no way.

Perhaps you will not want to know the name of my new lover, but in any case I shall tell you (for your stalking purposes) – Vietnam and Cambodia (yes, I know, two!).

Until we meet again.
