Journey of a transplanted seed

Welcome to my diary! You'll read about a Canadian who decided to discover a new country and meet new people by moving to the United States. I then got laid off from my employer and had to come back to Canada (yay!), but moved to a new Canadian city about 1900 km away from my hometown. In July 2004, I moved back to my hometown, looking at the city from several different angles. I'm constantly learning more about myself, people, and the world around me.
