You’ll See


Ten years ago, I moved to Oregon. I'll be reflecting on that throughout 2010.

"I'm moving to Oregon," I said in 1998 to my friends and family in Virginia.

house, well, that'll be it. You'll see."

In 2006, my soon-to-be

kids. You just can't do that sort of thing with a family. You'll see."

my wife and I start a family, we'll be studying the atlas harder than
ever. We're thinking some time living abroad — New Zealand, perhaps —
would be a memorable, unique learning experience for our kids, and a
great time for us as a family.

We'll get there.

You'll see.
