This Is It

(Originally posted December, 2005).

Well, I'm packing up the computer.

Well, I mean, clearly, I'm not doing that right this second. But after posting this I'm shutting down and packing it up. Monday is the big moving day. The shelves are bare, the cabinets are empty, and the house is basically a giant pile of boxes.

It's a strange way to spend Christmas, but as I think about it, I guess Jesus' family was kind of on the move, too. Only they had a donkey, instead of a U-Haul. So perhaps it is appropriate to reflect on the stress of moving and traveling and finding a place to rest one's head.

It looks like the weather will be good for the trip. I'm hoping for some beautiful vistas to brighten our way.

OK, now I'm just thinking up things to say...a form of denial, I suppose...if I just keep typing, then we can never leave! Just like on Sunday...if I just never played that last chord for the choir, it would never be over...but, life must go on, the journey beckons, and, truth be told, I am -- mostly -- ready to go.

I wish you all a blessed sacred season, whatever your tradition may be. The next time I'm here, the Window will be looking out on the Rockies, and Denver...

Now, that's a nice thought.

Paz, Towanda

    Wow! This blog is really cool! It is only in the last 1 - 2 years that I have come to spend more time exploring the internet for fun. Prior, I was consumed by completing my dissertation. Now, it seems, I spend most of my time on the computer preparing and thinking about how to best communicate the pluthera of information I am finding about social issues and spirituality to my students. I look forward to hearing your ideas in the process. Ann

    Hey there, Anne/Nancy….

    Sorry we didn’t see you on moving day, but if you got my phone message, you’ve heard my excuse. Olympia and the inlaws held us longer than we planned. Weekend was very low-key and unstructured…a good holiday given the circumstances. Hope Christmas was cheerful and the exodus went smoothly. By the time you see this you’ll probably be safely situated on the other side of the Rockies. The three of us miss you both very much, and hope to hear from you soon. Greg


Howdy and thanks for looking in the window. Glad to have your comments here, just please remember to be kind.
