Well our bags are packed, we’re ready to go

Movers arrived today, to box up our worldly belongings. The reality of the move gets pretty concrete when you’re faced with an empty wall of painting hooks and a wrapped up sofa.

There is still some anxiety on my part, but it is easing as it moves from unknown fear to a set of tasks, which have solutions. As my friend tells me, no one is dying in the makin if this movie.

And as my clothes are unceremoniously dumped into boxes, it feels more and more like stuff and less like me, or my life. Of course toddler may have a different opinion when he returns from daycare to find everything boxed up.

For most of our friends, we will talk to you on the other side, as they are taking our linking toys and moving them. We are due to fly out Saturday night, and settle sometime in the next week or so, but maybe more.

I’m not ready to say goodbye in my heart to Brooklyn, or New York, quite yet. But it is happening. Now.

    Peter, I was thinking of you all last night…specifically, imagining you packing/prepping/ordering food for delivery….anyway, the McCarty crew are sending you good vibes and the good luck for the big trip West (assuming you are not taking the other way around the Earth.)

    At this moment you are on a plane, hopefully resting or taking in a good movie, toddler asleep. We’re excited to hear about your new adventures, whatever form that may take ;).
