It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Prepare for Take-off

Today is Pick up the New Car day.
Yesterday was Go Shopping day, the Cosmetics department at Lord & Taylor is now my new best friend .
We are settled in nicely in our hotel, the maids are all at the point where we are worth small niceties like extra towels and soaps without asking for them .. we get big smiles and good mornings when they see us on our way out.
I say something goofy to make them laugh and I succeed ( we won't ponder the question .. do they shake their heads in pity at the poor woman who makes no sense when I leave?)
The people at the Diner know us now, they know I like their soup.
So as we are sort of settled in here, it is time to leave.
The children would prefer we stay longer but time is flying by and there is a little house in the woods, waiting for us.

I will not be posting for a little bit.
Perhaps upon arrival to our new home away from home, up in New York State, I will take a break from the non-stop fun of looking at homes that may or may not be our dream home... I will be able to check in and say Hello.

You can check and see, I will definitely have photos and stories to tell when I am able to share.
Lucky me that you are there , an appreciative audience.
Thank you for all the notes of encouragement and kind words .. I am most happy to read them.
So chau for now, Happy Holidays and see you in the woods !


  1. I feel so guilty for being absent for so long!

    I'm playing catch-up now.

    I'm pleased that all is well in your world and wish you all the best for the holidays and for your new life up state.

  2. I'm so glad you are continuing your blog, as I am interested in your impressions and opinions of a country you've been away from for six years. Since you've been away from the East Coast even longer than that, you must be noticing so many changes. Those are the things I'm anxious to hear about, as well as your upcoming home search, acquiring pets, etc.


Thank you for your comments.... Trolls are being dealt with ... be patient if your comment does not show up immediately. Thanks !!
