Taken during the fall -- Sal standing in my front yard looking
over the leaf colors on the mountains.
Having been fortunate to live in an outstanding natural environment for the past five years, I find it will be hard to say goodbye to my home.
I have received an approved offer to buy my house. Of course it will have to pass through all the paperwork stages before I finally leave this place -- about two months from now if all goes as planned.
This has been a busy summer and now I find the pressure of moving will increase as I get nearer to the time when I will close my home door for the final time.
I'm heading west to be near my children. Most of my furniture and stuff will be put up for sale real soon. My life is turning another corner. One with more simplicity -- I look forward to it.
My main task right now is to keep my thoughts balanced -- which should help me from getting that overwhelmed feeling.
Right now I'm eyeing all those books I so dearly love and thinking I might just pack them up and send them media mail rather than trying to stuff them into a U-Haul that I will be pulling across 1,400 miles.
Most of us have made a few moves during out life time. Some of us still live in the house where we were born. No matter -- home is home wherever we land.
