Each day is a journey, and the journey itself home.
--Matsuo Bashō, (Japanese poet, 1644-1694) from Oku no Hosomichi

In a diary entry dated September 4, 1883, a young Darwin D. Martin once longingly wrote:
The sweetest song on earth is ‘Home, Sweet Home.’
Martin’s expressive words resonate as clearly today as it did when he first composed them.
And it is with those sentiments in mind that we extend our heartfelt thanks to our dear friend and colleague, Martin House Senior Curator Jack Quinan, as he embarks on his newest journey home to Boulder, Colorado with his wife, Sandra Q. Firmin. While the Rockies are beckoning, know that the prairies of Parkside will certainly miss you—and no matter where you are, the Martin House will forever remain your home.
Best wishes and bon voyage!
