This week I bid "so long!" to the bustling metro hub that is Chicago and said "how do you do?" to the balmy coast of southern Florida. The move still hasn't sunk in just yet. When I wake up in the morning and see palms instead of maples and oaks, when I hear jays instead of house finches--it's weird.

I know it'll take a while for me to get used to it all, but so it goes.

It's a good time to reaffirm my commitment to blogging, and to do better with it.
