One Year in My Own Place

A year ago I moved into this apartment after having lived for 14 months in an attic in Alameda. It was a beautiful attic but I was certainly in duck and cover mode as I lived the Year of Amy. now that I am in the Year of Living my Dreams, I am doing just that, nestled in my lovely home.

Sometimes I am lonely here but then I look around me at all the art or out the window at the trees and feel more settled. Our little, private apartment complex is like a secret neighborhood and we all know each other.

When I have friends over for a visit, which should really be more often, I am reminded of how sweet my place really is. How lucky that I have my own pad in a fantastic city, Oakland, just steps away from fun ad adventure in every direction.
