I am home.
Picked up my keys to the new apartment today and wandered around the empty space trying to figure out how best to use it. I decided that my edit suite would live in the living room, and the rest of my office would fit inside the spare bedroom. My living room furniture in its current arrangement, would fit almost exactly the same way in the new space. Just gotta make sure it doesn’t feel too cramped. Theoretically, I think I found the handle.
Friends are lined up to help with the move on Sunday. Haven’t even started packing yet. Nothing like a hard deadline to motivate oneself. Rented a cube van, and I even figured out the order in which to move things in. Also took care of some odds & ends, and now I feel like I’m ready to stop thinking, and start muscling.
Toronto was as great as Washington. I remember how nervous I felt when I booked the trip. It seemed like the right thing to do, but the hit to my cash flow would be profound. The decision proved not only correct, but beyond my wildest expectations successful. More than ever before, I feel I’m on the right track. Been saying that all along, but maybe just being ‘out there’ in the market place on a regular basis is the trick. Thinking happy thoughts on an island somewhere can be a lonely place.
Setting up my new office in my new apartment with projects blossoming, ready to green light at any moment… it’s the ultimate clear beginning and ending.
