Adios to Omaha

Waxing Gibbous Moon

I don’t think Omaha NE gets enough credit for being a happening Midwest city. Sitting right next to the Missouri River, just north of the Platte River, and on top of the Ogallala Aquifer, it has plenty of water, which means lots of recreational opportunities and good farming. There is a rich Native American history as well as that of the immigrant European settlers. It serves as an important military center and the home of major universities. And its spirit is enriched by its interconnected parks and inspirational public art.

Plus it is the home of my dear cousin Carole and her awesome children and grandchildren. I really can’t say enough good things about them and the vastly underrated city where they live. The next time you cross the country by car or train or bike or on foot, make a point to stop and take a close look. Omaha is full of surprises.
