Turning 50

This is my 50th blog post. Holy. Moly. A lot has happened since I started Hello Field nearly a year ago:

What is totally absurd and wonderful is that friends, family and even a few randos from the internet (hi guys!) have read and cared about all of that stuff. Who knew I had even remotely interesting thoughts?

I started this blog to keep my lovely Toronto friends updated on our adventures in the boonies. That’s still 90% of its reason for existing.

But it’s also a weekly opportunity for me to zoom out, think macro about my life, and write about what’s taking up the most space in my head. Hitting publish is strangely therapeutic.

I guess the whole point of this post to thank you – for reading, reacting to and sometimes even commenting on my stories.

The adventure continues and, at least for now, I’ll continue writing about it in 200-word pieces.

I feel strange publishing a post without a photo, so here's one of my feet dangling on the edge of the Grand Canyon.
