Yes, I Live Here

My new digs have yet to feel like home.  It’s still as if I’m in a really nice hotel suite, just minus a minibar.

What’s keeping me afloat, my big buoy in the water, is writing.  I stay fixed in my little chair once belonging to my late friend Nancy sated in scribble and scrawl.  There’s safety in the written word, once put down, finding its home, unlike me, who’s still searching.

We’re designed to adapt, this I know, but it nonetheless, feels like housekeeping will knock any minute to see if I need more towels.

As I just wrote to a friend, by spring, these walls hopefully will fit much better.

Till then, I’ll be patient, bearing the chill, staying closest to the page.

About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

    That scene will be perfect, after you’re rich and famous, when they turn it into the Museum Of Susannah. Good for the parting shot in the film of your life story too.

    What a perfect spot. It takes a little time for a new place to feel like home. My last move (20 yrs ago) was hastened by four children who quickly erased the new out of the home.

    It’s getting there slowly but surely Susannah. Next year at this time you’ll not remember the new. It will fit like an old pair of jeans… ~Elle

  5. I like your writing desk. Looks like it’s cozy. I need a desk like that sometime.


  6. I love this scene, it speaks volumes of you….very cozy, and that’s a start to being a home.

  7. It’ll grow on you Susannah. Takes time, place you place has to feel lived in first. But the laptop and the desk are the same, and like you said, your writing is your anchor. Our youngest daughter has just relocated there. She will be starting work at Columbia University in February. So she is moving into a new place near 156th and Amsterdam—which probably will not feel like home either.
