I've given Blackavar up for adoption to NY Animal Care & Control on E. 110th St, NYC. They accepted my donation of bedding and hay that I brought -- and knocked $10 off the fee. They don't euthanize rabbits, and they work very hard to find them good homes. They also pre-screen applicants. That took a huge load off of my mind with regard to Blackie's future.
I was still sad to have to do that, and my son misses him very much, but it was truly the best thing I could have done for him at this time. I finally had an offer from a friend of mine to take him in, but it was the day after I gave him up. Time was, unfortunately, of the essence.
As to my own situation, I've finally moved the bulk of my stuff out of NJ and into storage; just two more boxes and I'm done! (We ran out of boxes during the main move, so I had to get more.) Tremendous thanks to those friends and family who helped me during this very difficult time. Also, thanks to the friendly, funny & cool moving crew! Expensive, but worth it!
So, at the moment, I'm based in Manhattan, so I'll be closer to where the action is. Closer to work, to my family (SO important!), to my students and clients; away from old, bad memories and expensive inconveniences. Yes, change can be good! Even though it can be hard to bear when it occurs, the relief I feel in the aftermath makes it worthwhile.
After a weekend's rest, I should be in fine form to tackle classes and readings again! I'll actually be down at Club Horus tonight, on E. 6th St. @ Avenue B, NYC -- it's for a friend's birthday party, but I'll be available for readings afterwards. I'm nearly always available for readings; just give me a call, or book me from the Bookings page.
That's all for now, folks. Thanks again for stopping by, and for all of your care and concern for me and mine during the past few months, while my life was in turmoil. It really did make me feel blessed to have you in my life.
Blessed be! I hope your Independence Day was glorious!
