That line from Tori Amos’ “From the Choirgirl Hotel” is most likely about moving on with your life, but moving on with anything, even to a new home, can be traumatic and fulfilling. You find yourself in a new space and even though you’re surrounded by your own familiar possessions, everything feels different.
Today, I am moving into a new home. I’m happy with the decision, but I know I’ll miss my old home for a bit, in the same manner that while I love Citizens’ Bank Park, the newer home of the Philadelphia Phillies, there are aspects of their old home, the infamous Vet’s Stadium that I miss, too. But shaking things up and starting from scratch is healthy and one of the upsides of moving.
I spent the last several weeks packing up my belongings (which is why there wasn’t a blog post last week), the movers arrive at 9 a.m. and I’ll be on my way.
Tune on Thursday, when I’ll post my photo of the week, and again on Monday, when I’ll hopefully have something new to say.
