“Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
– Erica Jong
Let me tell you a secret.
When Cindy dropped me off at LAX on March 10th after we spent most of my eight day trip to LA together, I knew I was going to live here.
Sure, I already contemplated moving to Los Angeles prior to my trip but I would have put my seriousness at maybe 25%.
After I saw this face at the airport as I prepared to go through security…
…I never thought again about “if” I’m moving, I spent the entire flight doing math on my salary trying to figure out “when” and “how.”
Of course, I didn’t tell her this because that might have freaked her out. “Hey, I know we just started officially dating but I think I’m going to move to your city.” I made it seem like it was up in the air for a little bit and maybe that I was a little unsure.
But I knew where I wanted to be.
And as I’m writing this post on my one-way flight to Los Angeles (with a connection in Minneapolis), I’m almost there.
Pretty awesome, no?
