oh, not far...
just across the subdivision, within sight of the old house, 1 minute's drive worth...but light years away.
from north-south orientation to east-west orientation.
from darkness to light.
from cramped quarters to spaaaace.
from low ceilings and small bathrooms to high ceilings and big bathrooms.
from jungle to urban.
from stuffy breathless afternoons to wild breezes at all times of day or night.
just a couple of blocks away!
and i'm so glad.
