I haven’t mentioned this publicly, though you may have gathered something big’s afoot… I’m leaving Lugano. In 10 weeks. Maybe you’re wondering…”Where are you going, Rebecca?” And that, dear readers, is a Very. Good. Question.
I have no idea.
It’s been time to leave here for years, though. Friends, family, work – none of them are here. Perfect renters need the apartment now, so here I go. This is an opportunity worth taking.
Perhaps I’ve perfected the wandering art form, or thrown myself into Buddhist practice, or, I don’t know… something… by renting my apartment to a lovely young family before I’ve made plans for another one. I have work trips, friends, some ideas about what to do next, places I’d like to see… and there’s the European Summit happening in October so you know where to find me. Other than that, I am adopting Radical Simplicity in a way even I never imagined.
In the past I would have worried like mad over this and needed some kind of plan… not a full-blown itinerary like some people would want, but something, for heaven’s sake.
For some reason I’m remarkably calm.
It helps to have one’s debt paid off.
The truth is, recent events have blown me open in a raw and basic way (If you are new here, I am a PhD-holding serious businesswoman not usually prone to New Age jargon. We will return to our normal programming shortly. Bear with me while I have my little Buddhist awakening, ok?).
Not sure where I want to live, I think I might just travel for a while. Could I come check out what it’s like to live in your city?
Thank God Mom loves the dog. He’ll appreciate her air conditioning. Thanks, Mom.
I’m not sure what else to say about that right now… let me just tell you, people, so far being 40 has been FULL of surprises!
And, once again, Adventure Awaits!
