Maybe I should start with what this is not. This is not a "what I did today" blog. This is not a personal website with links to my writing, causes, favorite sites. That is tempting, but concerns about creating a giant time-sucking machine have kept me from going that route. I'm not intending to link to other bloggers, facts about Canada or information on how to emigrate, at least not now.
This is meant to be a chronicle of the latest chapter in our ongoing adventure (that is, our lives): our move to Canada. It's a way of processing the overwhelming change I'll be experiencing, and a way of posting our news to anyone who's interested.
But being the storyteller that I am, I need to backtrack to the beginning of the journey.
