It’s funny how I begin to appreciate more the place I’ve lived for a year and the incredible person that my nephew is, who has been staying with us for four months, just before it’s all about to end. But that’s just how it is sometimes. This year has had many incredible changes for me personally. My father passing away, my mom leaving Texas to live with my sister, my company moving from Livermore to Dublin, right across Dublin Blvd. from where we live. My job going through changes, Jo leaving Safeway to go to work for Gap Inc., and now Jo and I moving into San Francisco.
I don’t think I’ve had time to processes what this year has thrown at me so far. But the fact is I’m looking forward to this newest change with every fiber of my being. I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter of my life with Jo in one of the greatest cities in the world. But I will look back fondly on the period, just before the current chapter of our lives ended, here in Dublin, the East Bay of Northern California. Here with Jo and Zach and eating good food, drinking good drinks, and having very good conversations with people I love. Jo and I will not have children but we will always look fondly upon Zach. Not that we had any part in raising him but in hoping that we were able to provide some positive influence for him and hopefully help him to see what we think are the important things in life; quality of life, family, friends, art, philosophy, science, facts, debate, discussion, aesthetics, intellectualism, and design.
We will miss our life here in the East Bay and briefly with Zach, but we hope this next period in our life will bring more wonderful and fulfilling experiences. Here are just a few photos from our last weekend in Dublin Ca.
