More than ten years (or, reflections when oceans meet)

More than ten years (or, reflections when oceans meet)

Eleven years ago, this journey began when I made the decision to leave my stressful, highly-paid job in a tall office building in Boston. Over the months that followed, decisions fell into place that meant selling a home, a car, a variety of possessions, and putting others in storage.

And while those mundane topics formed the bulk of our “serious” discussions,
