Fond-Du-Lac, Wisconsin. Pre-ramble:
August 5, 2008
I’m getting better at packing less; more quickly.
Each time the amount of luggage goes down, and the essentials list gets smaller.
I own things I never thought I would: mucking boots, a respirator, and a sleeping bag.
I have my own stash of duct tape.
I’m considering a GPS gizmo. I understand there are different voices you can choose from, so I wouldn’t have to deal with that starchy lady trying to re-configure me.
I know a lot more about power tools, which is just enough to know a little and still be a bit scared of ‘em.
I’m still preparing with V8, crackers, and power strips.
I’m running low on clothes that I don’t mind ruining. I’ve already divested myself of quite a few that were too big.
I have fewer expectations. That is to say, I’m not projecting: I’m accepting that this time will be different, and looking forward to experiencing those differences.
I’m taking all of you with me, again. I had no idea so many people could fit in one heart.
I’m happier than I have been in a while. I’m going with GOD.
