new sundays

Today was one of those exquisite days that make you feel guilty for not taking advantage of it. I spent about an hour lazing in Fort Tryon park, trying to make myself RELAX like people in the rest of the world seem to be able to.
I don't know why it's so hard for New Yorkers to let go and be ok with not necessarily DOING something for an hour or two. I'm totally guilty of that. I tried reading, got anxious.
Looked around at the beautiful scenery, got anxious.
Told myself to lighten up, got anxious.
This is definitely something I'm hoping to change once I find myself in new surroundings. Here's another photo...

is this thing working? this is my first day of blogging and i don't really know what i'm doing. hopefully, soon, i will get a grip and be able to start posting more fluently. just for a little information: i created this blog as i'm preparing to make a big move to the other side of the world.
the initial idea behind the blog was for my use once i arrived and settled in new zealand...but i then realized that it's certainly not too early to start now. i anticipate going through a ton of emotions as the date of departure draws nearer (what am i doing? am i doing the right thing? what will happen to me? who will win Rock Star INXS?). i cannot even begin to imagine where my head will be once I arrive on antipodean soil...but hopefully this blog can serve dual purposes: 1- to communicate with those most dear who are keeping the home fires burning, and 2- to maintain some sort of sanity, and 3- to keep some sort of record of the trials and tribulations of this beginning adventurer and follower of her heart. a lot of people ask why on earth i'm moving to new zealand, and i plan on elaborating on all my reasons soon. till then, i'll just say, "have you ever been?"
