Apparently news of my return is common knowledge in Staten Island. My parents are part of a smaller local community and I largely keep to myself. I never was a religious type so I seldom mix into community affairs or attend local gatherings.
I was surprised how many friends and neighbors were aware of my return. The community is much larger than when I left. I have brushed back several invitations to singles events. I preffer to live appart just beyond local concerns. It is harder for me to return home than attend a similar function in VT where I am just a drifter.
I burried my car in the driveway. It will not see much action for now. The next big trip is my trip to GA. I did want to take a trip across country. This will wait for now. I certainly do not want to do this in winter.
Tommorow is my first day at the NYC office. There will be several Vermonters arriving later.
