December Blogging Meme Topic #21:
Any day, if you had the freedom to do anything in 2015, no worries about time or money or anything, what are the top three things you would do?

I would return to London, have my life back the way it was.

(I would eat, drink, travel, and write. I would collect art. I would visit everyone I've always meant to visit, and that's a lot of you. I'd keep editing for Strange Horizons; maybe I'd attempt to write a novel, assuming I'd finally have the time to do it on top of all of the other writing I squeeze into what precious free time I have, which I refuse to give up. I don't want much more out of life than to be back in the United Kingdom and able to do nothing but write. I think that's all I've ever wanted, and it took me thirty years to figure that out. The three years since then, i.e. 2012 through 2014, have been difficult, and I still don't know if Boston is a place in which I can be happy. However, I have no choice but to be here for the moment, and I'm waiting to hear back regarding an opportunity that very much hope will be offered to me. It would mean a definite improvement in my day-to-day existence, certainly.)

Good luck with your opportunity!

I suppose if any place could be close to what the UK could be for you, that would be Boston/New England, huh? But not nearly close enough. Some 250 years and one ocean apart, at least.

Boston is the closest I can come in the US, yes. But it's not quite the same city it was when I was in college, and that saddens me more than a little.

That sounds absolutely wonderful. Hoping that this opportunity finds its way to you.

I will know very, very soon.

Fingers crossed for you, dear. You shall have to keep us posted.

I will. It's not a chance to go back to the UK, sadly, but it's much better than what I've currently got. I should hear sometime this week.
