Here’s some free advice: Don’t walk toward Chaos. (fromThe Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan)
I’m moving to Georgia in a couple of weeks, and I have to tell you that I feel like I’m walking toward chaos. In fact, I feel like I’m running pell mell toward chaos as I deal with details for the sale of my place here and the purchase of my new place in Atlanta, pack up all of my things and make decisions about what to keep and what to get rid of, play mental tetris with the space in my car trying to figure out what I can keep with me, and begin the slow process of saying goodbye to this place that has been my home for the past two years and the people who have made my life here absolutely wonderful. These days I’m feeling pretty bummed about having to leave Boston, but I’m also looking forward to the relative calm of settling in and setting up house and establishing the rhythms of a new normal.
