A new home in a new neighborhood
A different city in a different state
The start of a new season in life and on the calendar

It’s transition that has awakened my heart
It’s change that has enlivened my feelings
Yet, adaptation is what makes it possible to last

Fir trees to palm trees
Cold, constant rain to quick showers and more sun
The NW United States to the SW United States

Three story mansions to bungalows
Beamers to Chevy pickups and compact cars
Kirkland, Washington to San Diego, California

Once, stoic, proud descendants of lumberman and fishermen of Western Washingtonians
Now, laid back, open-hearted Southern Californians of mixed ethnicity and purpose
In the burbs once east of Seattle and now in the burbs north of Tijuana

Do I miss the wind, rain and cool gray days...emphatically, I do not
Do I miss the friendships and connections of three score years…I do indeed
Do I regret having taken a geographical life leap…time will tell
