The Journey

It’s been a long time coming.  For about three years now Gaby and I have contemplated moving away from D.C. and going somewhere greener and with mountains.  Long story short a combination of many things helped us decide to pull up anchor here in D.C. and move to Charlottesville, Virginia.  Long story even shorter the last bits and pieces of the move are almost complete and we’ll soon be living in a far different place, though fortunately not too far from those we love.
By the time we move it will be 10 years, 67 days since I first moved into this city.  Mostly it’s been a very fun ride.  I will miss this place.  I love it here.  In a small way part of me wonders if perhaps the best years of my life have passed, the sum of which has been spent as a D.C. resident.  If that is the case I am okay with it.  As I said, I love it here.
Then why the move?  The journey.  Why else?
Sadly, moving is not this easy.
