I’m sitting here at my parent’s house, waiting for them to get ready, so that we can drive to H-town and load the trailer. Today is the beginning of new things and the end of the H-town era. Crazy. I remember moving there. On Friday, August 10, 2007 my mom and I drove the van and trailer to my new apartment, unloaded it with my girlfriends from school, got the trailer stuck and were rescued by a hometown friend. And now I’m leaving.
It’s the end of my school years too, at least, as far as being a student is concerned. I’m out of the PhD rat race and am perfectly happy this way. I love me some musicologists, but, I have noticed that the longer folks stay with studying it, the stranger they become. I’m already strange enough.
But, enough with the ends, it’s the beginning of so many things. “The first day of the rest of my life,” so to speak. SA represents newness. New friends, new church, new job (what’s that a full-time job?), new opportunities, new trials, new blessings, and the list goes on. At least, it will if I survive moving today and tomorrow.
