      It is as if you are here! Layers is the perfect descriptor and lots of conversation as each object packed holds a story, perhaps a future blog post about that! Thanks for reading and commenting.

    I expected prose and was charmed by this breezy poem. Great division between the 2 guys with a truck and the 2 gals with a car. Ending with a hashtag is fun and “Summer of Nana” speaks volumes. Also, this poem has the underlying message of the multiple steps and stages of such a move. It has a spirit of work but also of companionship and love.

    The work of moving is a labor of love indeed. How fortunate you are to have two daughters to pitch in and help. I love a change like this. Everything clean, organized, a new place, a new community, a new grocery store, a new chapter. You are blessed, my friend. I’m excited for you and want to come sit at your table and drink fresh coffee and look out the windows to see the new views and imagine what it will look like in the fall and figure out the best place for the Christmas tree. Oh, what a feeling!

    MOVING. There’s so much to it, physically and emotionally. This makes me think about all of my moves, about moving my folks from one place to another and another, about an upcoming move for my in-laws. It’s…a LOT. Here’s hoping everything goes smoothly for you!
