It was twenty years

This was my evening contribution to Facebook:

"This recent February 7th marked twenty years when my family and I moved to California from the UK; somewhere at the end of February or into March of that year, we moved to a town called Patterson, located near Modesto in CA's Central Valley, a region home to the state's agriculture (and epic heat).

I completely forgot on the day that it had been twenty years, as back on this February 7th I was more concerned about catching up on exercise than I was remembering an anniversary of mine.The day we emigrated seems as though it happened not only in another lifetime but in another universe completely."

Twenty years...such a long time ago.


  1. I know, it seems like an eternity ago. We've been living in our house for 23 years. I was 3 when we moved in. It doesn't even seem real, given all the changes.

    1. Life is expected to change; it's the extent of the changing that takes people by surprise.
