The End

June 30, 2012 marked the end of an era of my life.  I really felt free as I drove away from Georgia and headed to my hometown in South Carolina.  Whew!  At one point, I was feeling like I couldn't ever get out of Georgia.  Straight aggravation!  I managed to keep it together and did a "woosah" to keep it moving.  It was all happening that way by design, but I just moved on.

We had a good run Atlanta and the surrounding areas in which I worked, lived, and played.  However, the book has been written and "The End" is inscribed in the back cover.  I've met some good people there, even up until the last couple of months of my tour.  I also had the opposite and wanted to rip those people a new one.  Since jail time would not allow me to continue with my new life in Abu Dhabi, I decided to just pray for those that know not what they do.  So I let go and I am not kidding when I say I am happy to be done with that!  My life in Atlanta was not bad at all, don't get me wrong.  I loved it there most of the time, liked it there some of the time, and wanted time away from the tomfoolery a little of the time.  I guess I should say when you know it's time to leave a place, you know.  There were no tears, no second thoughts, and no regrets about leaving the A, which further confirms I am absolutely on the right path.  

Goodbye to the old life!  Hello to my new life, new cultural experiences, new opportunities, new people to meet, new places to go, new book, new chapter, new beginning!
