Insert Wizard of Oz Joke Here

I am now sufficiently settled into Missouri life to be ready to think of myself as "in Missouri." Thus, you will notice that "Jared in Kansas" is a thing of the past. I have decided not to try to change all of my internet presence to JaredMO - I'm justifying it through the idea that Kansas will always be an integral part of me. The truth, of course, is that it's far too much work and would be confusing. Nonetheless, now we have Missouri here on the blog, and over on the Etsy shop.

The above image is one of a series of square images captured this first Missouri winter. I have not titled any of them - I think they work nicely together and separately, quiet, without names.

We now live much farther from civilization than I had anticipated when we first set off in this direction. It is true that a relatively short car ride can bring a person to the city, which is what fooled me in the first place. It is also true, however, that something about the place discourages car rides altogether. I am walking, picking on my guitar, and staying out of town.

Very cool! I have roots in both Kansas and Missouri. Born in Missouri, raised in Kansas. They each have their own unique flavor.
