Moving Day

I've been lucky - going on six years without packing up my things for a new location.  Before that, it was an annual (or semi-annual, depending on my consulting engagement!) ritual for six years running that reminded me of the human accumulation instinct - and the drudgery of picking up for another place once settled.

But I can now live vicariously through my sister, who has just relocated to DC.  Not only do I now have a blood-kin within a stone's throw, I have a simple reminder of the comfort of a settled house.  As her moving truck rolls up today, I tip a hat to the old days and look forward to helping her out - but returning to the comforts of a cozy hearth at the end.
