farewell to Hyde Park

My last few days in Hyde Park have been without any major “experiences,” which makes me a little nervous. Right now I’m doing some last-minute cleaning and awaiting the arrival of Andy and my future in-laws with the moving van.
I wonder if I should change my blog name now that I’m moving? A couple of years ago I was getting my hair cut and the stylist, who was herself not from around here, being originally from Ethiopia, advised me not to stay in Hyde Park/Chicago too long–lest I become “one of them” (I can’t remember if that’s the way she put it, but something like that). I think I know what she meant, and it’s entirely possible that it’s too late for me and in some sense, I will never really leave Hyde Park. Rather than worrying about that, however, right now I need to concentrate on trying to find the cats among the maze of boxes in my erstwhile apartment.

    change the name to “a hyde park ex-perience”. Indicating that it’s no longer an experience — it’s an ex-perience.

    I like this idea. I think I’ll wait a while to make sure Hyde Park doesn’t somehow manage to coerce me back again.
