Leaving Prague, Going To Montana

… of all places.

PRAGUE, Czech Republic- Anyway, we’re leaving Prague today. I am not joining the New Silk Road Project expedition; I’m not riding in a Jeep with a group of young British explorers across the Caspian and through Central Asia and China.

Instead, I’m going to Montana.

It’s the right thing to do.

My sister is getting married there.

I suppose I should end this month long go in Prague with a big “I did it!”

I took care of my two girls and ran the homefront on my own as my wife went to school. We had fun, we went to Austria, and I was also able to publish a few articles and get some work done on a couple of books.

At the onset my wife questioned whether or not I was up to the task, if I would put her and her schooling over my work, put myself in a very precarious situation with my career for her, and I did it.

Although I don’t yet know the ramifications are of essentially taking three months of not being able to work full-time.

There was also a tumultuous under-story at play that I won’t get into here.
