The smartphone changed time zones as I keep heading away from New Haven, Connecticut to my new business address in Tucson, Arizona. However, I haven't manually changed the time on my computer or car. That's because I still need to hold onto New York Time.
How long will that go on? Tonight I spoke from Santa Rose, New Mexico to my college friend Kathleen Huebner who teaches at an Arizona university. She said all the right things. Yes, Tucson would be a great fit for me. And wasn't it wonderful that the cost of living was significantly lower than that of the New York Metro area.
Tomorrow I will pull out of the motel for the next 12 hours of driving to Tucson. When I get there and set up my home office I will have to dive into several assignments. The New York clients, to my surprise, haven't dumped me. My expectation is that work, as it always has in the past, will insulate me from reality, until I can absorb it, on my terms.
