MIAGD: Make it a great day
Early Monday morning, August 20, 1990, I got into my car, packed with last minute items and backed out of my West Washington Street driveway for the last time.
The cassette tape, inserted from the previous drive, drifted into “This Is The Moment” from JEKYL & HYDE.
It seemed prophetic; or, at least I hope so.
I opted for a familiar route that took me along the river past the homes of the Ball brothers and The Minnetrista Cultural Center.
Within a few minutes, I was heading East out of Muncie, my destination Dayton, Ohio.
All my furniture and other items had already been moved to the Victorian townhouse on McPherson Street in the historic McPherson District.
The adventure was fresh and exciting. I was stepping forward into a new chapter, a new city where I knew absolutely no one.
Within three months, that new chapter had turned into a whirlwind of activity that was soon to become the life I’ve loved these past thirty years.
It’s been a wonderful chapter; a wonderful life.
Make it a great day.
