  • So, I'm in the job interview process for a job I really, really want that would move me across the country. I am excited about the possibility. I am hugely nervous. I am conflicted.
  • I don't know when they'd want me to go, and if I go soon I may not be able to see the Poet in October. Even though we'd arrange another time, that tugs on me and aches. . .I didn't expect him at all, and it's hard to know how to gauge the whole thing. He wrote me a poem, and even in translation it's striking. ( ) 
  • I am exhausted beyond belief from being in this city. Even the crazy weekend that was PiCon was more restful than a simple Sunday here.
  • Being in a city that doesn't seem to have a fannish presence is weird and uncomfortable, I'm noticing. 
  • There are people and entities and things I will miss in New York, but I really think I need to leave.
  • How do you know Home when you find it??

Haven't posted in a while, so here's the skinny.
--Moving back to NYC next week, staying with friends and then moving into my own place and bringing Nimbus down.
--Cadence and I are taking a break, sorta. 
--Working on the job situation.
--Working on finding UUs and pagans I mesh with in the city.
--Meeting up with Someone on the 4th, which should be interesting.
Off to the Quaker retreat for the weekend, see you all Tuesday! Have great weekends and stay safe.

For someone who's being accused (by my father) of being isolationist, I sure do have a ton of friends. The phone is always ringing, I can always find company, I never have to be alone unless I want to. This past week, I've had people with me on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I have had more good conversations, face-to-face, in the past seven days than I had had in the three months prior. I've been having intimate encounters, slumber parties, heart-to-heart chats, movie-watching, intellectual debates, and gigglefests. I feel connected to the city and to people. I've been getting and giving support. I'm not feeling touch-deprived for the first time in I don't even know how long, and although I approach things with a healthy caution, I have no fear and very little self-doubt. I know what I need to do and most of how to do it, and I feel good about where I am and where I'm going.

I'm really, truly happy.

Who wants to worry, the noise, the dirt, the heat?
Who wants the garbage cans clanging in the street?
Suddenly I do!

I am in New York, in the new apartment with Pen, unpacking and cleaning.
I had a very good job interview today. *crosses fingers*
I am sleepy and miss my kitten.

I have the worst nausea. And the trembling, and stress hives. I want to stay in bed, which is warm. However, I have to get up and get things packed and organized. Because tomorrow I am moving to NYC. Eek.
I am really going to miss Cleo.
