On this, my 300th blog post, I want to thank all the readers who joined me on this trip.
I thank you for all the sweet notes and cards and support and sympathy.
When the journey began, I merely wanted to have something to do each day. My previous blog had 55 pageviews -- 45 of which were mine.
Frankly, I don't know why you've continued with me, particularly in the "sad sack, woe is me" times but thank you, thank you, thank you.
I had been thinking about how to wind this all down at some point. Perhaps when my rental was furnished, I would take a video of home and share it and say goodbye.
Or when I could purchase a grill, something that always makes me feel at home.
Maybe my daughter -- who reports she's doing great in Hollywood -- would interview me for a final post.
But then the trip has added this latest blip, where in three weeks I'm putting my stuff into storage and moving back into a hotel. (This one will not have prostitutes or drug dealers next to me. It is, as the Three Stooges used to say, a classy joint.)
One pony is I continue to work and love my job.
Nearly two years ago, other journalists interviewed me about my predicament and the most common question was "What do you want people to know?"
I always said understand the brittle nature of our economy. You can be a hard-working, job-loving employee and still end up in difficult circumstances. Sadly, I moved too much over the years, which is expensive, failing to understand the importance of stability. I have dear friends in all of the 12 cities I've lived in and hundreds of other friends in other places. I truly love so many people I couldn't count -- largely because I have the math skills of a word guy.
Thanks folks and I'll keep telling the story of the Homeless Editor.
Peace and stability unto all of you my friends and brothers and sisters.
