Of lasts and firsts….

Today is my last day at work for 6 weeks, the longest time I’ve had off from work since I became a full-time lawyer.

Today is my last day (and night) in Melbourne, Australia, one of the greatest cities I’ve ever lived in.  

Today is the last day I will post on this blog…


Today is the first day I am officially on Facebook.  (Yes, after years of gurumbling about the failings of Facebook and the happiness of my non-virtual life, I’ve decided it’s too darn hard to keep up with a global network of friends without Facebook.)

Tomorrow is the first day of an international adventure to New Zealand, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, Vancouver, WA, CA, CT and NC.

Tomorrow is the first day I will miss Melbourne, and look forward to the journey home.
