Aspera ad astra: “To the stars through difficulties.”
That’s the state motto for Kansas. It’s also the name a fantastic indie band from Lawrence. Those words resonated with me as I lived and worked in Kansas.
Kansas surprised me. For 2 years, I sampled anything the state had to offer. At a Topeka pub, I enjoyed raising my voice with a weekly Irish Sing-Along. My hubby and I won 2nd place at a Trivia Night in a Lawrence bar. I also loved sauteed meal worms served by a K-State professor. Plus, I found places, like the Cosmosphere, that inspired my inner space geek.
I want to start my next adventure in Healdsburg with A Really Goode Job.
