Well folks, since last Thursday we are both officially unemployed and unencumbered by jobs. As bittersweet as it feels to leave behind our wonderful colleagues, bosses and peers, the time has come for us to move on.
With only nine days until lift-off, every day feels precious, and the to-do lists and lists of people to see continue to ebb and flow. (And the cold nights and frosty mornings make us even more grateful that we are flying south for the winter!)
This blog will become spectacularly more active when we finally hit the road, so please stay tuned, check back regularly, and keep us in your thoughts as we inch towards our October 29th departure. We have had many sweet and sad goodbyes with local friends here in The Pioneer Valley, and I shed even more tears this evening as we said a final farewell to a dear friend who lives at the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA.
This moving on business is tiring, but as Michelle Shocked once said, "the secret to a long life is knowing when it's time to go."
