Windy...

I woke up a few days ago and saw the light gleaming in the leaves of a tree outside my apartment. The wind was blowing fiercely – whipping and thrashing the branches and I thought about that saying, "What doesn't bend breaks."

This past week has been filled with lessons in bending and flexibility. Preparations for the move are under way and just trying to get everything done that needs to get done has been a little overwhelming. Deadlines. Post office. Packing. Errands. Paperwork. Things are moving along... slow and steady.

I've been having a hard time keeping a regular routine, but hopefully I'll get back into some of my normal activities. Later tonight is the Farewell to New York party. I'm looking forward to celebrating my time in the City and the people I've come to love.
