On the other hand, I am going to live in LA for a while; for weeks. I'll come home on weekends so I can be with family. I will still be able to preach Sundays. And I'll experience a new cultural perspective. Yay.
The end is in sight. I'm grateful for the convenience, but I'm a bit ambivalent about being away from Karen so much. I know people who've had to do this for their jobs, not to mention military families, but after 38 years of marriage this is something new for us.
...The depth of my ambivalence is seen in the fact that I can't seem to come up with a zinger of a closing line.
