Tomorrow I leave for California–here’s the plan: I have one more week to work at NASA, and then, on May 1, I start at Powerset, a new search company. Exciting, and a bit scary: the plan is for me to be in California (say) three weeks per month and (say) one week in Michigan. Bess is on board with this, but we’re all a bit daunted at being apart so much.
I am looking forward to the joys of being in the San Francisco area: this weekend is the Second Annual Golden Gate Sacred Harp Singing, and my friend Khalil Dalal has invited me to go see Omar Sosa at Yoshi’s.
Yes, my native land, I love thee,
All thy scenes I love them well,
Friends, connections, happy country,
Can I bid you all farewell?
Can I leave you,
Far in distant lands to dwell?
Home, thy joys are passing lovely,
Joys no stranger heart can tell;
Happy home indeed I love thee;
Can I, can I, say “Farewell?”
