Today is May 1, Beltane to pagans and witches, and the second anniversary of my arrival in New Jersey.

Looking back on that exodus from Houston in 2006, it's probably one of the bravest things I've ever done - to pack up everything in my minivan (and separately in a moving van) and drive halfway across the country by myself to live in a new town where I only knew three people and didn't have an apartment or a job. Of course everything worked out for the best, but it was definitely the biggest risk I'd ever taken in my life in terms of jumping without a parachute. And wouldn't you know, it has also probably been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done as well.

I was going to write more, but work intercedes. Happy Beltane everybody!
