So ends my second attempt to live in the big city. While we all wait for what happens next, here are some interesting facts:
I moved twice to the big city five years apart: 2005 to Nashville, 2010 to Philadelphia.
I got to Nashville on Labor Day. I left Philadelphia on Labor Day.
In each town I lived eight months.
In each town I spent less time away than I did living there. I think I calculated that I spent less than eight weeks out of eight months actually in residence in Nashville. In Philadelphia I bet it was less than four full weeks out of eight months.
For every end a beginning.
