Goodbye Portage & Main / by Deborah Clague

This bird has flown.

The past few months have been a whirlwind. If you had told me six months ago that I would become another statistic of the recession, I wouldn't have believed you. If you had told me three months ago that I would be thisclose to morphing into a female George Costanza, I wouldn't have believed you (although I must say, velvet is fabulous). And now, 2010 brings with it immediate change...I have taken the advice of Horace Greeley The Pet Shop Boys and am heading west to the land of living skies. 

There is much that I love. There is much I will miss.  

I bid thee adieu, Winnipeg.
