Chris - as you know, I'm a big believer in just following your dreams. Joanne and I have never moved anywhere because of a "job" but rather, we moved every time just because we were moving to some place we thought would be cool to live.
We happen to love the Cotswolds in England and have spent chunks of time there. If you want to live in England I say go for it. As you say technology allows you to live anywhere so just enjoy the process of moving and starting this next exciting season of your lives.
Thanks Dan - I appreciate your reply. And of course, all your books, podcasts, etc. As many others have indicated, you've become a long-distance mentor for me, joining the likes of Dr. James Dobson, the FamilyLife Today guys, R.C. Sproul, and others.
p.s. I'm blogging about this journey at http://acactusincornwall.wordpress.com
I'm a huge fan of cross-cultural living. It's such a rewarding experience...that helps us to see life through new lenses. I lived in England for a while in the past and loved it....that was my first 'cross-cultural' experience. It was an easier transition there than other countries. Later, I lived in Eastern Europe and studied another language....also an enriching, but a more challenging experience. Sounds like you've got a deep, God-given desire living in England. If it was me, I'd take the leap of faith and do it. I plan to do more cross-cultural living in the future myself :)
Thanks for starting the good discussion....
Hi Brent -
Thanks for your reply and encouragement! I appreciate it deeply. All the best to your continued cross-cultural living!
