This is my last post before my family does the modern version of going fishing. We are going to load up the minivan with the kids and drive around the Western United States. We’re not going to bring our computer or laptop, so I’ll be cut off from the world in that way. However, I am going to be out in the national parks, small towns and other tourist attractions that we stumble onto during our travels. So, I will be cut off in one way, but I will be united to the world in a completely different way. And, I hope to write about some of these experiences when I get back.
I am reminded of Thoreau going off to Walden Pond and giving up the modern conveniences of his time to live on that piece of land near Concord. But, instead of trying to live off the land independently for a year our family will collect together and venture off to visit some of the most amazing natural wonders of our country. Some of us have been to some of these places before and we are anxious to share them with the other members of our family. But, no matter if we have been there before or we will see the sights for the first time I am certain that we will be amazed at the beauty of nature and remain in awe of what God has created for us to enjoy.
So, the main point of this post is to let my entire cadre of regular readers know that I have not fallen off the edge of the earth and I will be back sometime in the middle of July. I would recommend that you read my archives if you want to get a dose of Dr. Forbush. If you found this blog and you are disappointed in the currency of the post, then I would recommend that you read some posts from my archives to get a flavor of my writing. You could even listen to my voice in the podcasts that I have created.
So, this is not “Goodbye,” but only “Until We Meet Again.”
