Sabbatical by the Numbers

When I started my sabbatical in March 2017, and Karla and I started traveling for her nursing work, we did not know how long we would travel, where it would take us, or what we’d do along the way. My goal was to write most days, with the long-term goal of publishing a novel. On August 1, 2018, I accomplished that goal by publishing Thoughts of an Eaten Sun. Along the way, Karla and I have driven a lot of miles. Plus gotten married! We are still traveling but, as of November 2018, I am back to full-time work as a software enginner. Since the sabbatical has officially come to an end, I wanted to reflect and see what all that time included. Some numbers come to mind.

A Note of Gratitude: I calculated it out and my sabbatical lasted for 1 year, 8 months, 15 days. There is no doubt in my mind that without Karla, I would never have taken the sabbatical. I love her and I am more grateful to her for supporting my dream than I can convey.
