I’m moving due south from Chicago to Houston for a great new job. I’ll be covering automotive raw materials for ICIS, a commodities wire service with offices in New York, London and Milan (I’m leaning toward Milan….eventually).
It’s a great opportunity for me. I’ll be writing full-time again. For a wire service. Which is what I love.
I will continue a lot of my freelance work: writing for the Journal’s Leisure and Arts pages, as well as my Nick Mattera novels.
George and I will be leaving Chicago on Thursday. We’ll stop in Memphis for ribs at Rendezvous. Take a slight right through Little Rock, then due south to Houston, where it was 65 and sunny today.
George will commute down once a month. Spend school vacations and summers down in Houston. It’ll also be a good opportunity for us to continue our father-son quest to visit every MLB ballpark in the country. We will, of course, make pretty quick work of the Astros and Texas Rangers. Then, this summer, we will see the Yankees play the Dodgers and Padres, as well as squeeze in trips to Anaheim and Arizona. By early August, we’ll have been to 22 baseball stadiums (not to mention numerous trips to Brooklyn Cyclones and Staten Island Yankees games).
So wish us luck. It’s a great opportunity — for me and George.
(And did I mention they have offices in Milan?)
