Left behind

The thing is, where do you start when you want to begin again? I'll start with two things:

1. I miss all of you.
2. I've been inspired by Kathy to post again.

The latest & biggest with us is that we moved this summer. Just across town. I love our new apartment. A really lot. So, about that:

3. When you have central air conditioning in New Haven during the summer, life feels about 80% better.
4. When your kitchen is 60% smaller than it was, but still has plenty of counter and cabinet space, it is about 60% easier to keep clean.
5. When most of your 50 boxes of books fit in the built-ins, and you can gaze at them while you sit at the dining table, you appreciate them 70% more often than you did before.

6. Being able to store your towels AND display them at the same time makes you very glad you started buying them in all your favorite colors a few years back.
7. Living where most of your haunts are walkable will hopefully help you get fit. Unless your walking mostly takes you to ice cream and pastry shops.
8. Nothing beats having 4,000,000 books in your backyard.
