19 Days to Boston!
So, this post is (perhaps) notable for two reasons:
1. It's my first post in 2011, after only a handful in 2010. Versus, say double-digits in 2007, 2008 and 2009. That's something I certainly plan to change as part of...
2. I'm moving to Boston in 19 days!
#2 there is kind of hard to absorb- both for the brevity of the time remaining in San Francisco, and the length of the time behind. I moved here in September 1999, so it will be almost 12 years in the city when I climb on board that plane (with my two furry little carry-ons) to join my beautiful bride in the Far East (coast) on July 29th. Kind of wow. Kind of big. Kind of too big to write about all at once. Which is one reason I need to get blogging again more regularly for the remainder of my stay here.
Beyond that, one of the things I want to be part of this move is a lifestyle shift to more time for creative pursuits. I had a pretty good run of it there for a few years, but then the pace of life, and especially the nature of my job, made it hard to maintain. So I'm going to try and recast that in Boston, and make my creative pursuits a central fact of my life, which work and other factors must be shaped around.
How exactly am I going to do that? I don't fully know yet! I'm doing things to explore livelihood, and making myself open to change. Stay tuned for what this looks like, along with other exciting announcements. And give me hell if you don't hear from me more often!
