But I'm thinking I want to escape more. My wife and I are spending lots of time looking at places far away from Portland, Oregon and the need to just break out of this place has been overwhelming at times. I've tried going away before, even as far as living in Japan for a moment, but something keeps pulling me back.
And we're also trying to start a family. With any luck, my readers here will be seeing blog posts on diaper changes and being up in the middle of the night in another year or so. The thought of my wife and I growing old together and raising little ones makes me happy inside.
And hopefully the books will continue to be written. I have several in various states of completion. Maybe I'll finish one of them sometime soon.
I wonder what others are thinking. I wonder where we'll all be in ten years.
My greatest hope is that I will be kinder.
