...and a curtain is raised

I'm now (relatively) settled into my new room at the Faber Jesuit Community here in Brighton, MA. My room is a bit smaller than my previous room in Detroit, although I do have my own bathroom and shower -- a huge plus! This is, in fact, the first time in my Jesuit life (8 years as of August 21st) that I've had my own bathroom. It's sort of nice being able to leave my shampoo and soap in the shower each day.

It only took me about 10 hours to drive from Cleveland to Boston. I stopped three times for gas and for food and I have very little traffic along the way. All in all, it was an enjoyable drive as my rental car had XFM radio and spent the day catching up on the political news I'd missed while in Austria all summer.

Without question, there is a great part of me that is sad not to be in Detroit. That said, I drove away last Monday with the sense that the time had come for me to continue preparing for ordination. If my regency is any indication of how quickly time can pass by, these next three years are going to fly.

There'll be more updates over the course of the week. I'm taking it easy, getting to know the neighborhood and trying to get TONS of paperwork - immunizations, course registration, insurance, etc. - completed.

Stay tuned!

I've visited there...a friend was studying there who got ordained for the NY Province of the Society this past June, Joe Marina. Nice digs, nice neighborhood. Enjoy.
