Everybody agrees. Not that I need to be validated by other people’s opinions (butitsureisnice).
BUT I DIGRESS
This post was intended to be half-full, not half-empty.

My new home is wonderful! I am right by the lake, near a park by the lake, not a warehouse by the lake or a shopping center by the lake–but a tree-filled, more-nature-than-Chicagoans-see-on-most-days, genuine park! It’s by the lake. And I have hardwood floors and walls (regular, not hardwood) and all the necessary rooms and ceiling fans and windows where I can see the lake! Oh, I should mention that it’s by the lake! And hoooo-boy, did I need a place by the lake.
Basically, I’m living in a retreat center. One that’s private, that is.
Which is kinda awesome.
Shouldn’t we all live in retreat centers?
I put my Buddha by my bed to hammer home that whole retreat center thing. (Don’t tell Buddha this, but he’s more just for looks, ’cause the retreat-feel is already there on accounta I can hear the waves of the lake arriving on the beach.)
My lake-citement is not a rubbing-it-in-the-face-of-non-lake-dwellers feeling. (I fear it might be coming across that way). I AM JUST SINCERELY DELIGHTED and somewhat surprised THAT I LIVE BY THE LAKE!
I appreciate your patience and understanding while putting up with my lake-citement.
Moved is good.
