(yes to carlabirnberg.com but that MONUMENTAL SHIFT shall come in 2013.)
The move to which I refer is away from my beloved ATX and onward & NORTHWARD to the bay area in California.
(Or is it Bay Area? See? Im already behind in the vernacular!)
The move to which I refer has absolutely zero impact on my blog and yet even just sharing on a few social media platforms Ive been touch by how youve leaped to connect me with friends/places/restaurants/schools in the area Im a little hesitant to begin to call home.
It has all reminded me of the positive POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA and how much I look upon you as true friends—-and not strangerfriends*.
I cant lie to you — and to Ren Man’s huge dismay him either—and say Im excited about the relocation yet.
I love me some Texas. I adore me some heat. I embrace me the weird.
As a result this woman who doesnt love quotes has fallen back upon this one as a mantra (origin unknown. anyone?):
Change isnt part of life—change is life.
I figure if I can impart that wisdom to the Tornado at SIX she’ll be far far ahead of where I am at forty-three and a half.
And thats where I am today on this day after Halloween morning.
Working to embrace change.
Seeking your insights.
- When was the last time you uprooted and moved? Any tips for this woman
who has resided in the ATX for twelve years and has the clutter to prove it?
- Have you spent much time in the Bay Area (bay area?)? Is it as unflaggingly cold & damp as I surmise?
- Wanna come hang with me as I box stuff up? We could film a FAB packing-as-workout DVD!
Im a misfit. In my early days of blogging I clearly delineated between friends I’d met in real life and those to whom I felt close yet had never met. Friends who could pass me on the street & Id not recognize although we emailed multiple times a day. Part strangers. Part friends.
