I am wrestling with ~ Apathy vs new job/new house/new city I know, huge. Toto, your sig inspired me. I love it, as it is how I feel today. A vague and constant desire for something that does not exist, for something other than the present, a turning toward the past or toward the future, not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness... "Forlorn Hope" I have always wanted to move out of Dallas. Dallas bites. There is nothing to do here. Period. Unless you like cement, and shopping. I have stayed all these years for various reasons, but now all those reasons are gone. Poof. Evaporated. I can either continue to exist here with mild apathy - or jump off the big cliff of life. I don't like my job, I need a new one. difficult child is far away, and will be for awhile. I have about 3 friends in this whole city. And I have a nice profit coming when I sell this house. So ~ what is the answer to swimming in forlorn hope? Action. So where should I move? I need mountains, but nothing too snowy. AZ, NM, CO, UT? Or SE Oregon? I also need hot & available, but sage and loving single men who love the out of doors. And I need a new job, which I guess needs to come first. And I would need a house with a big yard for my 3 furbabies. Ideas??? This feels like a craigs list ad Sorry.
