Well, I can say today that I have a few.
Friends, that is.
I came home, I got emails from here, from there, from that one, from this one. Soooo nice to know on all sorts of different topics, I have peoples =)
Hard transition today- DUDE. From that earthy, green, mild, ocean- mountain BC terrain to hey, you're in flat old snowy cold Winnipeg again- wasn't an easy day. I woke up, looked out the window- yup, there it is. Same as it always is. Oy. And yet they come BACK here like lemmings. What IS that about... WHY would you do that?! I cannot say that I get it. What is it about the Peg that is so magnetic for those born and bred here?!
Funny- my sister in law commented that isn't moving easy now that you've done it? They've moved to the Cayman Islands from Vancouver, to Calgary from Cayman; travelled to Greece, Cuba, Czech republic, Norway... the true world travellers of the family. And yes, she's absolutely right. Once you've made a "big move" to a new area, you can so do it again. It removes the fear- that feeling like "how would I fit in" or "who would I know". You just do- you meet people, you learn to fit in. You can do it anywhere.
Looks like they'll be in Alberta for a while. Alberta might be nice- at least in some spots you can see the rockies. Taxes are lower. Incomes are higher per capita.... I can see myself doing another move. Westward, ho !!! =P
