Yeah, I know…

it’s been a while…

But, I do have a valid excuse. We closed on the DC house, secured an IKEA bed right before closing time, and managed to not find anyone in DC who spoke to you either before you did or after you did. It was a great trip and we learned so much more about the city than perhaps expected.

We partied with our realtor Greg, who, by the way, is the coolest guy I’ve met this year. We ran into a friend of ours from Maine and with our relator in tow, we partied until the wee hours of the night. Again, a great time with awesome friends at the helm, which gave me so much hope in my new life…

We took long walks throughout the city and experienced all the craziness of non-speaking passersby, car horns blaring, and zany businessmen that typically wear, look, and talk in the same manner. Maine is very far from DC but you know, DC will welcome me with opens arms and my life, despite my distance from the ones I love, will grow like the wind.

Don’t Forget To Write!

This year, I starting over.

With the move to DC, I am starting a new chapter, a new song, and of course, a new circle of friends. At first, I thought: this is a good thing. But later, I thought: perhaps I’ll change into the monster that requires clothes to match the leaves or friends to match my ever-pressing schedule.

Shucks!

I am looking forward to the move because as soon as I find my way, it’ll be the ‘ol hat trick all over again. Troy and Sammy will visit and a slew of my good friends from Maine. Of course, Russ will never visit but in a strange way, that’s okay with me now. Most of my friends will make the effort which will make up for the distance in contrast with my best friend. OD and Jen will make the best of their life together and if anything, they find the groove that make it work for them. My Mom will be sad but I think she’ll find a new way to cope with the distance and if I don’t visit her at least once a month, she’ll probably kill me.

Planning a surprise trip for Troy in a few weeks. Instead of going to DC to work on the condo, I’ve decided to shuttle us to Barcelona for a week. It’ll be a nice change of scenery and we haven’t been anywhere like that in a long time. In his surprise, I’m sure he’ll give me some of my cool points from the year back.

I could use a few actually…

A Phone Conversation

A Phone Conversation Between Two Lovers

I need to hear that
you love me but
before you do so,
tell me what you think
about this suit,
but hold that thought
and tell me what plans
you have
for our future and if anything,
speak in poetic verse and
quietly dispell boring
myths of fatigue and infidelity.
When you’re done,
don’t stand too closely
or walk too fast
since my desires are
still water-drenched
and my need for
you is fresh,
and indifferent to
why we stand together.
Tell me why you
love me and don’t
quit until I
close my eyes.
Don’t forget
to lock the door on
when you leave.
