Coming to the End of the Road

Coming to the End of the Road

cake, happinessFrom the end spring new beginnings ~ Pliny the Elder

Well I am in the middle of my ninth month on the road.  Job applications are being submitted, hopefully soon, I’ll start interviewing for jobs.  The very first step is to leave the east and head for California.  I’ll get to see a couple of friends on the drive as I head west and will even spend St. Patrick’s Day in Las Vegas.

It’s been a good run, and the one thing that always happens when I step out of working is that time slows down.  Hiking across Scotland seems like ages ago, not just eight months.  This trip has been a wondering sort of journey from Scotland, across Spain and Portugal, down into Morocco.  A couple of months in Mexico, down to the gulf in Alabama, back up into the damn snow in New York and now finally, back to California.

I’ve made a couple of new friends, checked off a few items on my bucket list, took a couple of good pictures, am close to having my next book edited and spent time with a lot of people I don’t see often enough.

Tonight my oldest niece even baked me a going away cake, with a little message, see you later alligator.  It was a very tasty cake and made for a very happy day. ~ Rev Kane

    I have missed your face on campus, and our chats. Your posts have been mini vacations for me. Thank you.
    I will be leaving to live off grid for 10 days in Talkeetna Alaska. I will have some adventures of my own.
