Back in January, I announced that after 6 years, I would be taking a break from Wallyhood.
My family and I will be leaving on Monday, March 9th to spend several months living in Europe, and, while the Internet can make distances dwindle, I don’t think it would serve the community well for me to carry on remotely (not to mention the effect on my mental reset).
Fortunately, Eric Fisk, past President of the Wallingford Community Council and long-time Wallingford resident, has volunteered to mind the shop in my absence, so Wallyhood will continue, uninterrupted!
I also heard from a number of people who offered to submit articles on a semi-regular basis, which is fantastic both for Eric, but also for Wallyhood: it’s always been my vision that Wallyhood would be a community conversation, populated with a diverse set of voices from around the neighborhood. Hopefully, this trip and change will be the impetus to move it in that direction.
Of course, inveterate blogger that I am, I (along with my wife, Michelle) will be blogging our trip through Europe. We’ll be sharing both the sites and adventures that we have, but also insights and lessons from the road on traveling with children, “worldschooling” and education outside of the classroom, and how to cope with a dizzying constellation of food sensitivities (gluten, amines, salicylates, to name a few) on the road. I invite you to follow along on at Hive Mind Travels.
You’ll see a few ghost posts from me still to come (already written, pre-scheduled), but for now, I’m handing it over to Eric. He’ll be introducing himself shortly.
See you later!
