SO! Let’s start with a much needed topic. It’s time to move. BUT! Don’t let that be a phrase that once haunted us with despair. Now, it’s a good thing. An incredibly good thing. This is the first time since I was homeless that I made the decision to move on. I’ve been in this apartment for the last 3 years, loved it’s tiny little nooks and crannies, and felt cozy comfort in it’s close shell. But, changes are on the horizon, good changes, and it’s finally time to make the move, not because I was asked, but because I decided more space was needed. Phillip and I will be living together. So! I found the perfect spot today, thanks to Danielle who follows my blog! I met with the landlord, filled out the application, was as charming as I could be….and now we wait to see if we’ll get the spot. It’s a charming place just a few blocks from here. And if we don’t, we continue looking. After all, discussion of marriage has been tossed about 😉 So, pray I get approved for the apartment. My books have been arriving in shipments of 50 to 100. YAY! Last night I signed them, handed them to Phillip, who put them in envelopes and slapped postage on them. I have a pick up scheduled for tomorrow. And all 300 of my books and t-shirts will be shipped out! YES!!!!! I’m still hoping to sell another 100 more to reach my goal. That would settle my life just nice for the next year. No fear of homelessness. And the occasional treat for myself. Like new shoes! And a new ball cap! Nice, pic, isn’t it? I love seeing that! It’s the manifestation of positive thought. Dreams come true. Every time I sign another book, I feel…..Hmmm. What’s the word? No, what’s the state of mind? Ah! I know. My friend Giovanni said it best. Euphoric. I promised I would post the link to the news piece that ran on television, and here it is! Forgive me for looking scrawny and a little ill in it…..it’s been a rough five years 🙂 And thank you all for the great advice on hiring a publicist! I’ll be working that out on Monday. The minute I spoke with a producer from ABC News, I knew I needed to hunt down some help. And what are we doing right now? Phillip is in the corner watching his favorite anime on his laptop. I have a stick of Nag Champa burning, a pinch of frankincense on my wrist, listening to Mercan Dede, writing to you. There with his Naruto, me with you. It makes me smile. We are both exactly where we want to be. I could not have a better life. Thank you all so much for making this possible. This is the story of how I knit my way out of homelessness.
