On The Cusp Of The New

Tomorrow Kish and I move into our new house in German Village.  It’s an exciting time for us, as we leave behind our transitional rental place and settle into our own home.

Of course, there’s something intrinsically exciting about change.  As Americans, we tend to crave it.  Part of that process always seems to involve getting tired of the old, and we’re feeling that as well.  We’ve appreciated having a rental where we could camp out for two months, but as Moving Day has drawn closer we’re chomping at the bit to move on.

Eventually we’ll settle in to our new home, there will no longer be a sense of newness in every little experience, and novelty will transform into comfort.  That’s in the future, though.  For now, we’re on the cusp of the new, and we’re happy and excited about it.
