Just happened to read this article on moving. I scanned it and get to the end:
You don’t have to be Buddhist to know life is change. Watching children grow will teach you this but, for the childless like me, moving is the next best illustration. It reinforces how fleeting the most perfect situations are. So far, the moves I’ve made have resulted — at least in retrospect — in new opportunities. Moving is like a New Year’s resolution: One more chance to benefit from experience and aspire to a more perfect life.
Weird, huh? The author is male by the way. Maybe this is a good sign.
