If you’re heading back to square one… go where there are nice squares

You prepare, as best you can.

You build, as best you can.

You stay in the moment, as best you can.

Then, so quickly: a new job, a new school, a new home  …

And you must say goodbye to what you know.

You say goodbye to what you’ve built.

And you move on.

As best you can.

“…the thing I like best about the squares is that cars can’t cut through the middle; they must go around them. So traffic is obliged to flow at a very leisurely pace. The squares are our little oases of tranquility.” — Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
