living like a citizen
feeling a bit sheepish about the quiet front around here. all's well, just busy. Big Life Things are potentially in flux (not in a bad way), so there's been a lot to think about lately.
i've been loving this spring. cool and rainy and wildly humid, but not blisteringly hot yet like it was this time last year. strange to think that we've been in new york now for a year and a half. seeing seasons move. as i've talked about before, it still feels temporary and immediate in so many ways, but the settling in of the realization that i'm making a life here adds some urgency and motivation to have a surer sense of place. does that make sense? it's easy enough to plan segments of my life into year-long increments, but committing to a place is something else completely.
not sure i'm there yet in terms of new york, but i suppose it's just about making a point as often as possible to live like a citizen, rather than a tourist
