I’ve been back in the states for a week and boy have I kept busy. Every day has been full of errands and activities, the evenings spent catching up with friends. The feeling of being back in a place where I have so much history and so many great relationships is wonderful. So many things, moments have helped reinforce that the decision I made was the right one. I’m happy to be home.

But not being one to sit still for very long I was already up in the air Friday headed to Denver for a weekend similar to the one this time last year. Two days surrounded by friends, meeting new people and enjoying some of the best live music on the planet. Like last year the stellar weekend was over almost as quickly as it began. Two short days and nights were full of memorable moments, laughter and a Saturday night show that I can’t imagine will ever be topped. The difference between this December and last is that I won’t have to wait 6-12 months to see these people and do these things again. In fact, plans are already set for the next such weekend in February on the last weekend of my two month break.

2013 is already full of great plans and possibilities. I’ve had a lot of people asking if I’ll keep this blog going even though the Amsterdam experience is over. For now, the answer is yes. There are some fun and exciting things ahead and I think the transition back to life in the states – the ups and downs – is all part of the story. It ain’t over just yet.
