It’s ironic this prompt comes up as I believe it was this day 11 years ago I left Colorado. I had just gone through some very serious changes in life and was beginning a new chapter; I lost my job, was going to lose my house, and was trying to find a way through it all.
I still remember that cold, miserable, rainy morning and I even wrote a section about it in an ongoing suite of songs I put together from bits & pieces of other songs I had already and new stuff I add when the songwriter urge strikes me. That morning was a horrible beginning to a new chapter but there have been so many incredible moments since then.
I moved to Washington State from Colorado and planned to make a grand adventure out of it. Along with that I decided to start a blog to keep my family & friends apprised of what was happening in my life.
My actual first post was this one, on September 10th, 2012 after I left South Dakota and it finally hit me that I had no home. It was a very freeing moment.
Now, here we still are eleven years later. I’m still blogging (except for the year break I took a few years ago). I still have a followers that were reading from the start.
Thanks to everyone past & present for reading what I write. It’s both pretty cool and rather humbling.
