Haiku for Kareem

Kareem 1994-2014

Try to dry my eyes
Can't imagine greater pain
Yet the world goes on

It's not a surprise
No one gets out alive, right?
It's still very hard

I'm reaching across
The abyss where we all fall
Recalling young joy

I have lived in Minnesota for most of my life except for that brief period when I lived in Alaska. My roots here are deep, but it is time for a change. I wasn't originally inspired by this though knowing it was a possibility was in the back of my mind:

So, I am pulling up those deep roots and packing our two vehicles Clampetts-style and hitting the road for North Carolina.

Mountain biking, kayaking, 50+ degrees warmer in winter, what's not to love?
