pack 'em & stack 'em

A quick sketch while drinking tea in my dismantled living room before starting to pack more boxes. The movers come on Thursday to move everything out of my home. The boxes are labeled for storage or the new in-town condo. Luggage packed for Bali. I keep thinking about the boxes I have packed and labeled for storage...what are the chances I will ever open them, again? I mean really, I have one labeled "office supplies" and I have already forgotten what is in it.

Jennifer A bittersweet entry to be sure...and how true about all the "stuff" we accumulate...What is it that we really NEED!!!???

Another wonderful sketch...you will really appreciate the fact you did this one...once you get to Bali...Of course we will all stop by you blog...What a treat we are all in for then...WooHoo...

My heart is pounding in excitement for your new venture...Joy!

I still have boxes in my attic from when I moved here THIRTY YEARS AGO, so I think you may be onto something!

I hope all goes well with the big move...I almost asked if you'd miss Maine but realized what a silly question that is!

Lovely sketch and one for the memory book. I look forward to seeing what new works may show up here once you are settled in your new location!

Very nice "quick" sketch. I'd be too nervous to do any sketching at all.

It's so true--I hope your big adventure goes very smoothly and all this work beforehand can let you head off reassured that you did all that so you can be "in the moment" there, in this new life you're creating! Best of luck with it all! Lovely sketch of the boxes.

Great entry. We downsized a couple of years ago and we have tons of boxes in storage. I don't know why LOL. Got rid of even more. There was a little "packers remorse" but mostly in was wonderfully freeing.

Enjoy your adventure and thanks for taking us along!

I wish you well on your new venture. I dare to say that when you come back you will not need most of that "stuff" you've packed away. Now, lets look forward!
