10 weeks

10 weeks in and I am giving Boston 2 1/2 stars. it’s just not working for me, even though there are a multitude of things to like about being here, but me living in it does not seem to be one of them. visiting is another thing altogether.

So the big question for now is…. how much time do you give a new place? how long does it take to acclimate? and then you have to multiply that by at least 10 to adjust for the shyness factor. this city has little patience for The Shy. i think i’ve written about that before. so how much time should that amount to? just an approximation would be helpful.

i guess i will give it more time. and even though nothing has really changed for me here, and i remain unchanged. but at least i am unbound. i take a perverse pleasure when i hear people back in my former city expressing their astonishment when they learn i have left. i had become one of those people who is not expected to go anywhere. but i did it. and now i’m gone.


About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
