Stuff

I have a friend that blogs about people's relationships with stuff. I've been both into acquisitions and downsizing, but this move was different.

I wanted out. All of the stuff, gone. I was sure I could fit everything I really needed in life into a couple of suitcases and disappear off into the horizon to a land where I don't speak the language.

Plans for next spring: I need some basic mechanics classes on engines. And probably some on plumbing. Then sailing lessons. I need to be able to run away from home without a reliance on gasoline.

Now, on the list of things that make me smile, my darling roommate Deena is very encouraging and welcoming. She even talks of the next house we buy together, which is more of a future than I'm ready to contemplate as I'm just trying to get through September. When I got home from work today, she'd watched that 'express gratitude to increase happiness' video, and had written out something to read to me. I hugged her, hard. I don't think she knows how firmly she's keeping my feet on the ground just now. Or maybe she does, because she's a clever girl who reads the things I don't say.

I am suspicious of Lulu and Celestial wanting to come snuggle with me before bed. The cat, you see, was snuggled on my other side. She bore their touch with quiet stoicism.

Tomorrow I get on a plane and fly out to Annapolis. Yay for the seeing of friends, and celebration of love that is there. I am very rich in friends and love. I know this. My morning coffee club makes me smile every time. The weekly family dinners. I am conscious of what and where I am. Just for the record, all of you reading this? I truly love you. More than I remember to say, so I'm saying it now.
