City of Music! Home of the Grand Ol' Opry, the Parthenon, and the Pancake Pantry!

It is to this place that Fortune has taken me; moved in over the last week. Into a tiny little apartment on Music Row, half a mile from Vanderbilt Medical Center. I rid myself of about half my possessions before the move, but even so, squeezing everything into six hundred square feet was quite an undertaking.

Now I get to live -- for the most part -- an urban, walking life. In general, Nashville is a drivers' town, like most American cities. But I'm in a little pocket in the old downtown, which has coffee shops, restaurants, bars, a little independent movie theater, a great used book store, and various other shops and services. There is a good Harris Teeter within what will doubtless seem a long walk, with groceries in a backpack, but which isn't really all that far. I'll be walking to work, too: a hair over a mile, round trip.

Wouldn't you know, I got a head cold upon arrival. It is one of those pinball viruses: one day it's in your nose, then your throat, then your chest, then your nose, then your throat again...
For a couple of days it threatened to smite me with laryngitis, but my voice started returning yesterday. None of this is that big of a deal; my energy level has been at about 90% normal throughout. But brother, when you are moving you can really miss that 10 percent.

In this new chapter of life, I may post a bit more. Here's to resolutions, and a Happy New Year!

Yeah, well, er... yes, oops. Sorry, it all came to a head pretty quickly. Promise to come back and visit. Or even better, when the baby is up on two legs, bring the family to Nashville!

Re: Oops.

Actually I have family in that area. I'll definitely let you know if we head out that way!
