In this moment, my life feels full to the brim.
I am home, at my desk, with sunshine pouring in. (Is it just me, or is this place where I live always sunny?) Yesterday was spent sorting and processing the mail & packages from 10 days away— delivered to me from our kindly postmistress with a heave-ho onto the counter in one of those plastic mail bins stuffed to overflowing.
I have yet to unpack or to run laundry, but I am slowly settling back in for a week or two until I am off again.
The big news is that Monday I took a train from Penn Station down to Providence (where I got to see Christine and snuggle the baby!) and check out my APARTMENT and sign the lease.
Have I already said, holy hella?! Gonna have to find another exclamation, I guess.
You guys, my niece Kate is the champion manifester of manifesters and I had her help me write up my “dream” apartment in Providence and yes, I admit, I was skeptical– but that’s why I enlisted her help– SHE held the vision for me and damn if every. single. detail. on that list didn’t manifest PLUS extra bennies like, three houses away from the Chitnis, a park directly across from the house for two spoiled and needy dogs who might want to take a pee first thing in the morning or last thing at night. A park where the birds sit in the trees calling out, lucky dee-dee, lucky dee-dee. I know, right?
Sure, Christine might find that a little too close for comfort and start calling me Mrs. Kravitz . . pffft, like I care. I am going to be NEIGHBORS with a true, dear friend– I think this is the first time in my life I have had such an arrangement and I am thrilling to the universe that has done me so right.
I have no pictures for you– I don’t move in til June, but I can tell you it is a victorian with built-ins, and hardwood floors, and crown molding, high ceilings– and I can walk everywhere.
Oh big sigh of happiness and relief.
Now, I can sink in and savor each of my days here at this beautiful farm because I don’t have to worry about where I am going next. Peace of mind, baby.
Oh! And– big news in a post coming soon about my art in a book that is just published!!
Like I said, full to the brim with goodness and light and am I ever filled with GRATITUDE.
