…not exactly from misery to happiness. It is with very mixed emotions that I inform my friends here in Scotland that my wife and I are returning to San Francisco. I’ve been offered a very fine job with Slide, in the siliconiest bit of the City, an offer I don’t think I can readily pass up. I’ll be pursuing several of my favourite things: Flash, games, and of course social networking.
When we first conceived the idea of moving to Edinburgh, I don’t think either of us could possibly have anticipated how much we would come to think of this place as home. We’ve made an incredible number of friends and come to feel (despite having no experience still with deep-fried pizza or ceilidhs) like locals. Thanks for everything you’ve done for us; thanks for making us feel welcome.
We’ll be hanging around until September, so please, if you see me at Edinburgh Coffee Morning, or down at Artisan Roast, or noshing at Manna House or Pani Solinska, come up and say hi, make sure we have mutual contact info, and feel free to contact me if ever you visit the great City By The Bay!
