Now that my upcoming move is official, for those of you who are not already aware, I can announce that I will be soon be pulling up stakes and leaving the only city and province I have ever called home.
My reasons for leaving the SPRM are numerous and could fill a novel that would make War and Peace look like a short story. It is a novel I do not wish to write. Rather than belabor the negative, I would instead prefer to focus on the many positive memories and friendships I have made during my time in this part of the world. For those of you who know me, please know that your friendship has meant a great deal to me over the years and it is one of the very few reasons that makes my decision to leave the SPRM difficult.
There are also many sights and places I will miss. Gimli. The bike rides to Lockport and Selkirk. Fraser’s Grove Park. Deacon’s Corner. Headingley. The White Horse. The memory garden at Grace Hospice. The bus trips around Manitoba and to Minneapolis.
Though I am saddened by the prospect of never seeing these places again, I am eagerly looking forward to discovering my new surroundings. Niagara beckons and I will soon be speaking to you from the Garden City of St. Catharines, Ontario. Good bye to my many dear friends and please keep in touch, as I will with you. I will soon have a new title for this blog, where I will continue posting updates as I cover the Niagara Region and surrounding area.
