Big changes coming up very soon...

I'm ready. For the most part. I'm about to do what I've been wanting to do. And the opportunity came up to allow me to do it. Still, big transitions can be nerve-wracking. Especially after calling a place home for 6 years, being in a fulfilling job for 4 out of those 6 years.

Am I crazy to be doing this? Am I crazy to give up a stable job in the health care industry in this economy? Am I crazy to embark on this big lifestyle change?

Maybe I am. And maybe that's a good thing.

"In a sky full of people
Only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy?
In a world full of people
Only some want to fly
Isn't that crazy?"

- Seal, "Crazy"

I'll definitely miss this city. It has given me so much - new friendships, new possibilities. Opportunities to dream, and dreams fulfilled. And I've found many, many happy places here. Places for art. Places for food. Places for peace and calm. Soon I'll be discovering a new city, looking for my new happy places. And that's a good thing.

It's been almost a month since I've written on this blog. As much as I think writing is therapeutic, I have been stress-cooking for the past few weeks. I made enough to feed an army. The funny thing about it is, there have been many days in which I didn't even feel like eating. But I stress-cooked anyway. I call it culinary therapy. There's something about chopping vegetables, stirring, smelling, and watching ingredients come together. It's like an escape from the many thoughts and worries going through my head, as I do nothing else but slice, dice, and stir... while listening to the calming, rhythmic sound of the knife blade against the bamboo cutting board, smelling herbs and spices come together like magic.

So one weekend I made 3 Indian dishes and 2 batches of Vietnamese yogurt. Oh, and my own hand cream.

Perhaps my "happy homemaker" mood is giving me this grounding feeling which I need so badly in times of uncertainty.
