What a year.
Making a new home in a new place. Ending a job, and starting a new one. (Enjoying a round on the ‘professional leisure circuit,’ aka a sabbatical, in-between.) Reading more books, taking more walks with Lyra. Waking without alarms, getting bored and exploring.
We’ve been living in a dream, a floor-to-ceiling glass-windowed apartment on the nineteenth floor overlooking Hyde Park, Chicago. It’s both stunning, and surreal. Truth be told, I never imagined I’d be here in the Midwest. But, life happens and I’ve decided to embrace the adventure.
But in an odd twist, I tested positive for COVID yesterday evening. The night before my birthday. It somewhat throws a wrench in the next few weeks, but I’m trying to take everything day by day. Small steps.
