It is official. I have left Rhode Island and my beautiful home has been sold. I now live in New Haven, Connecticut in a cute but humble apartment not far from the Scientology headquarters. Has that for ironic?
This move was stressful and has some remaining challenges, but overall I have enjoyed this change. Change is always stressful to some degree because we leave our comfort zones and now are forced to create new comfort zones. I do feel liberated that I don’t have a huge house to clean and maintain. I have a small place that allows me more time to do other things. I am still a bit shocked by a few things, like my lack of a dishwasher and I now need to go to a laundry mat, but I also see those things as new opportunities to break away from the norms of life and simplify. As I have said before, I would like to live simply so others can simply live.
My partner and I did stop off in Mass before leaving Rhode Island so we could get legally married. Here in CT, this will only be seen as a civil union, but that is all legal mumbo jumbo that gets us health benefits. The real heart and soul of our marriage is the commitment we have made to be partners in the journey of life. We have done well at that. Despite this move being difficult, we have been energized by the fact we have done this together. I was feeling scared of this move, but it allows my partner to take a great job that he really wanted. I am happy to have supported that.
Regular updates here at the blog will return as I get more settled. Right now, I need to go look for a job!
