There really is an entirely different reason why I am leaving for Australia. I am basically in pursuit of change.
There are many things I can’t change here now. But for the things that I can…I gladly will, for the better.
So I am saying goodbye to my old room — the water damaged ceiling…the crispy damaged walls…the cracks on my floor. The monsters under my bed. The rest of the monsters outside my bed.
When I come back things will be radically different. I will be coming home to a great new room with the greenest walls. Clean ceilings. Better space for my stuff. A better space to sleep in and maybe read.
I spent the past week cleaning out my room. Throwing things that no longer mean anything. Keeping things that do. Remembering everything that led to today, and wondering whatever happened what I was dreaming about before. So this the eulogy of my old room. Thanks for the days spent…but it’s time to shake you up to make things better.
