My reality this month is that I am moving out of a house where I have lived for 42 years. My daughter and her family will be taking over the place, so I am not having to leave it entirely! I am moving to my Gallery, nearby. But I do have to downsize, always good but also always tricky.
Since this task does include some life review, in addition to my journal I am trying to make time to take some photos as I tackle various tasks. Though I don't have time to do my best work, I thought I would just share some of what I am seeing while I make this effort.
|Here's another chuckle! This New Yorker cartoon has always been a favorite of mine.|
