Moving day

(Ruins in Turkey)

Today we are starting out on our move to Dallas. This will be our third move since we married. First Bahrain, then Oregon. Now Texas. We are both very much looking forward to moving near family and the prospect of better jobs. At the same time, we're very much going to miss the friends we've made here.

In honor of moving, a poem from some time ago:

the path wound on from here
beckoning to all who came after.
there was much behind,
and much more before,
drawing and spurring the traveler on.

once again with broad hat and a sigh,
taking up staff and knapsack,
time to continue on the ever new yet familiar path.
for there is much behind
and much more before…
