made a phone call yesterday
regarding an apartment in offenburg.
four rooms in an old house.
although i fear it's not the art nouveau style i'm hoping for.
first floor and two balconies.
of all the phone calls i made yesterday,
this call left the best gut instinct with me.
the gentleman sounded friendly, polite.
no frills or fuss.
and today he called saying he would be in offenburg
and if i like, i can come to view the apartment.
i have my fingers crossed.
offenburg is just down the road from here,
so that still means one hundred kilometers to work
there's yet another apartment i want to view
however i have to send a letter to a cipher number
to meet the selection.
that one would be in baden-baden
that would be exactly half the distance i travel now
so close enough to work
and still close enough to here
where my friends and hence family are.
i've manifested my list of what i want my new home to be.
and that's what i'm hoping for
is simply to walk into doors
and know this is what i've been looking for
i have my fingers and my heart crossed.
