Goodbye Illinois

Due to my move to NYC, I have decided to discontinue this blog and begin a new one at some point down the road. Moving brings change in more ways than just physical location. It also makes one take stock of where they have been going in life, what has been learned along the way, and what new direction one would like to head.

I have learned much during my time here in Illinois. That a warm sense of community can be found in the independent shops and restaurants of small towns. That environmental stewardship can be a rewarding way to forge relationships with like minded people. That old true friendships never die, and that some new untested ones may. That much can be enjoyed from the seat of a bike, along a forest preserve path, by taking a stroll in town or just sitting on the patio.

A week from now, I will be living in a new place with new adventures to take me further along on this path of discovery. Not sure where it will take me just yet but I am sure it will be interesting.
