Postcards from Tradocia

blue phase


It might not look any different, but this is my new home. Hello, pad 7! Note the tree. As JoKur said, we just moved to the suburbs.

Even though the move was only 1/2 mile and the trailer I live in is exactly the same as the old one, the feeling of moving still gives some sense of progress. If nothing else, it forced me to pare down my belongings: all my worldly possessions now fit within 2 duffel bags and one backpack.

Less than a month until we leave here. It seems repetitive – I feel like I should just put a countdown clock on the site so I don’t have to keep writing about it – but it’s obviously looming in my mind (and in the minds of everyone else).

    It is the suburbs- complete with grills and garbage cans. Now you just need some cardboard cutouts of kids riding bikes.

    Suburbs? Not unless you can always hear a lawnmower running somewhere.
