moving on

In two months I will have moved out of my apartment and emptied my studio. We're going to move to London to give it a go in our careers. We = my love and me (and the son has to come along of course). Suddenly I see everything in my home and everyday life - that has been so familiar - with different eyes; already becoming nostalgic.

Do we have a place to live in London?
Do we have a job in London?
No. We're taking a leap without knowing where we'll land.
Scary and exciting.

Alexandra, I admire your courage. I am such a home-sitter. I love to make trips, but I depend so much upon the town, where I was born and where I live the all life.

You are brave indeed! I wish you all the luck in the world, to get over those nostalgic times, to enjoy your new life... You'll accomplish anything you want. Your art pieces, esp. your portraits are strong and powerful. So you are. All the best to you and your family!

one of the best things that i've ever done was moving to Switzerland without a real plan. my heart told me to go there, so i went. if your heart tells you to go to london, go and see what happens. the absolute worse thing that could happen is that you find that you don't like it all that much and you return home. life without adventures isn't a life at all.
for now, i can understand your feelings of nostalgia. i have them to - knowing that i will be moving back to switzerland in 3 months.
i've moved so often that i have found a special ritual to make things easier. here it is:
i take special time and special trips to my favorite things (sometimes a tree or a cafe or a street) and i say goodbye to them as though they are people. it seems to help...

Men vad är det jag läser, tänker du ge dig av? Så spännande!
Bra gjort att våga, massor med lycka till! Man ska ta kommandot över sitt liv och göra det man drömmer om innan det är försent...
London som är så coolt!

hej, hittade dig via andreas blog. jag ska titta noggrannare på dina bilder, ville bara först säga att jag känner igen mig i situationen. jag har också varit i den, det är som att kasta sig ut i tomma intet... men mitt motto har blivit: bättre lyss till den sträng som brast än att aldrig spänna sin båge. sverige ligger kvar! go for it!
