Moving to New Places

I've been away for a while, (and not as dedicated to agent searching as I should be.) I've been working like crazy to save enough money for my move to Amherst MA at the end of the month.

Over all I'm excited, (and a little nervous) but there's been a lot of questions about why. Why am I leaving? What's the point? Are you going to school? The answer to all of that is, why not? I've been living where I am for years and years. I have two jobs, I work all the time, but my financial situation is stable.

I need to go.

There's no logical explanation. It's all a matter of heart and soul. I feel like I'm a stone sculpture eroding away, and if I were to continue in this state of stasis, I'd loose all touch with life and light.

On a much more positive note, Autumn is finally here! In so many ways fall reminds me, to a much greater extent than spring, of new beginning. The season of the phoenix. The colors blaze in the sunlight and fill me with unimaginable glee, and a warmth contrasted by brisk gusts of wind. It's an end to life's cycle. The time where the old is shed in preparation for a bout of rest and contemplation before spring's nectar draw us from deep slumber to act on our desires. (and pumpkin. Seriously, pumpkin everything. It makes me glade.)

All in all, I feel like my path is aligning with the seasons. I hope all the changes will bring good things, and I wish you all the same.


  1. Melissa Rose, I hope you move goes well. I'm not getting notifications on your posts. :o( Missed your writing.

    May the autumn colors fill your life with amazing light!

    1. Thank you. :) Yes, I've been pretty busy but I'm getting writing withdraws so it's only a matter of time before I become more active here again.

  2. Great post! I am in the process of selling my house and looking for an apartment to buy. A change for both of us. Good luck and much happiness to you.

    1. thank you for the comment. :D I hope the move goes well for you. Change is always good, even if everything goes wrong in the first few months. lol
