Transitions… ever on and on

Wait a minute, you might be thinking, I was on my way to There and (hopefully) back again-what’s this?

I realized that the name of this blog no longer truly reflected its evolving nature. You see, I started this project at a time when I was just beginning to feel doubts about my career and my new city. It was accompanied by a sense of longing for the way things were. There was an intense desire to return to the place and person I had been. Sure, I would endure “character building” experiences and some things would change, but there was a clear idea of who I had been and wanting to return there.

I realize now that the adventure isn’t about going back. It’s in moving forward. It’s about forging a path that carries me not to who I used to be, but to who I strive to be. That striving has been and, I suspect, will always be perpetual. I’ve never been one to be satisfied with where I am, and in some ways, I hope to never be. I keep moving down the road that goes ever on and on.

The URL remains the same. I will continue posting about my experience in the life of science. But it’s time for something new and different, as well.

    @Belle,

    Life is beautiful where we live.
    I really enjoyed this little (short) but immense (meaningful) post.

    Very nice! You truly can’t go home again. 😉 Change can be good, you just have to realize that fact before you can appreciate where you are, how far you’ve come, and where you’re going next.

    But I’ll miss the Hobbit analogy…

  4. Very nice, I like it a lot!

    p.s. Namnezia, as BB’s link will tell you, “ever on and on” is a Hobbit thing too!

    🙂 Glad to know some folks appreciate the change and the motive behind it.

    And as Cath points, Nam, the Hobbit analogy remains… just a little more subtly 😉

  6. Love the new name! Cheers to many more new adventures!

    Well said. I think we can all find something to relate to in those words. I know I need to.
