I'm chomping at the bits to get there, and obsessing over my new little place. How will it look when I'm all settled? How will it feel? How do I want it to look and feel? That's the real question, and some of the answers are slow to come...
I know conventional wisdom says to settle in slowly, don't rush it, take your time. But I may only be there a year, so there's not a lot of time to take, and besides, I want to feel at home from the beginning, which means nest-building in high gear. Even if that means making some mistakes along the way...
Which is a metaphor for how I've lived my whole life, and it's worked pretty well for me all these years, despite all current appearances to the contrary.
So, I'll do what I always do: think it to death, plan what I can, then, in the end, fling it all together and see how I like it.
What will I keep, what will I let go? That's always the question, isn't it?
Absorb what is useful. Discard what is not. Add what is uniquely your own.
