Meditation on moving, memories or why I still have that footlocker and my writing desk is staying

There’s nothing more likely to throw a monkey wrench into a well-ordered life than moving house. Not that my life is well ordered. I thrive on low level anxiety and loosely controlled chaos. But moving always better as an idea than as a reality.

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post everyone! Personally, I blame the holidays, and the fact that I entered into a food coma basically every night for the last week and a half.
