So here I am 'on the shores of Deadman Bay' which is a fancy way of saying I live in Steinhatchee FL. It's not a bad place to live; there are better, there are worse.
One of the good things about it is that I'm only a half-days drive from a whole bunch of cities where I can shop, perform, whatever. One of the bad things is that I'm a half-days drive from pretty much anywhere I can shop, perform, etc.
Well, not necessarily a half-day, but the nearest City of Significance is Gainesville at about an hour and a half. Two hours to Tallahassee or Thomasville, two and a half to Jacksonville, three and a half to Tampa, four to Panama. I don't know...is it better to be within striking range of a bunch of places or close to one metropolitan area?
And then there is the Woman Question. During the past five years the closest person I've dated was 60 miles away. Some were waaaay further. But they were all worth it. Yep, even the ones I saw only once. Even the ones who broke my heart.
