I've attempted to go to New York before. Everything just seemed to get in the way and now it may be happening for real.
Los Angeles doesn't have any major holds on me anymore. I'm a little tired of the city. Other than my friends and my car I have no reason to stay. My cousin wants to move there to study fencing and he asked me to go with him. In February we are planning a little exploratory adventure. Can I handle it? Will New York be too overwhelming? I've always been a California girl. I've always envisioned my self settling into one of the older neighborhoods of Los Angles, or Portland or even outside the Bay Area.
New York? Will I see him when I am there? Will it be a relief or traumatic? Am I running away from something here or just saying enough is enough?
I'm trying to think of it as a stepping stone. Box up all my stuff, put it in storage and move with a few suitcases. Then after a year or so there retreat back to the Pacific Northwest. Settle down. Get a dog. Drink coffee and breath.
