The Future of This Blog

Numerous people have asked me what will become of "From Kalamazoo to Korea" when my contract in Korea is finished. I had originally planned to end the blog at that point; however, I have come to greatly enjoy this creative outlet, and it has become a valuable resource for staying in touch with the many friends who live a great distance away from me. Plus, my life is so filled with random occurrences and experiences that do not happen to normal people, that I am confident of having plenty of new material. So, after much thought, I have decided to continue the blog after I leave Korea. Since I'll be embarking on yet another chapter of my life, it is only fitting that the blog change with me, so stay tuned for another blog makeover in February.

Thanks for reading!

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
