First of all, I want to say sorry. Sorry because I’m going to write down here some of your personal feelings. It is not that I like to do this kind of things usually but it’s the only way I have to say thank you for everything.
It always happens to me after a summercamp so at this point I’m quite used to this feeling. After this one, I’ve realized that every time I’m stronger, every time I know better how to manage the feeling of missing something. However, anybody knows like us how intense is everything there and how tasteless is everything outside. Even when you explain it, nobody realized that this will never happen again, that this people will never be together in the same place, talking about this, laughing about this.
I could say a lot of things, but all of them won’t be as lovely as the ones you’ve said before, the ones written in these emails I’ve been reading all the afternoon. My dear L says:
“For some strange circumstances my love for you is very very very big and I hope to see you again as soon as possible! Thanks for having teached me how important is to share these kind of experiences with people like you.”
You, L, you have taught us how important is a kiss, how important is a hug in a given moment. Thanks to you.
My peanut, B says:
“I still think teens are the worst in the world… but I have learnt you can bear it if only you are surrounded with the correct people.”
I completely agree with you B, without such a good team it would have been impossible, but finally we did it, they didn’t know that 13 people could beat 95 if they are together.
The boss, M, misses the 12 goodnight kisses. Me as well, the first night I wanted to send you a message with a (K), but then I thought “maybe I’m the only one who misses them”… I should have sent it.
W says… W says a lot of things!!! I could paste the whole email here because it’s so funny and so cute!!! Ok, W. says:
“I am really happy because even bad things like the fuckers and the “que te undht!!”, I remember like something stupidly funny. I don’t know. In almost two weeks I think that I know you like if I have been with you from my childhood…”
We talked about this one night, do you remember? A, you and me. I said that I knew you more than some of my friends and one week before I didn’t even know that you existed.
And… the last one…SJ!!! The voice of the experience, since 1998, with 3974393 summercamps in his back… says:
“People, as you can see, summercampsickness exists. Summer Camps take you to another world. For a fortnight, you just live the present moment, forget about the rest, and focus about you and your environment. That’s why one feels this strange sensation of life while in a SC.”
That’s the truth in person! Time goes by and you just completely forget everything, your house, your problems and your mum. It’s more than a job, it’s a therapy, it’s a drug. Thank you SJ, people talked about you in other camps and I’m so glad that now I can say I have also worked with SJ. It has been a pleasure.
