What we leave behind...
Since I'm ripping up my roots - permanently this time, I find myself in a sort of limbo. I simply have no idea where to go next...all I know is that life as we know it is completely & utterly about to change. These past couple of months have been quite the ordeal, for me in particular...can't really speak for my son. But I know it hasn't been all cotton candy clouds & sweet scented roses. Haven't really shared much with the people around me, it's been more of a need to know basis. But guess that if people have half a brain they can 'read between the lines'. :) A friend of mine helped getting some of our stuff into storage. She's a champ for doing that! <3 Still have a s**tload left, but tomorrow - come hell or high waters - it'll be done. I'm dreaming of a big truck & a stream of happy helpers standing outside at noon tomorrow...& all finished in one hour. :P But me, an utility trailer & some elbow grease will suffice! (Cause I don't really like people snooping around my stuff. Haha!) Fingers crossed some sort of powered vehicle will appear too...or else I'm f**ked. o.O Hmmm... I'm probably wasting precious time writing this now, but I "had to have" a 'roam the internet, drink Pepsi Max & eat sushi-break'. (Don't get me started on my "healthy living"-regime, it's all gone down the shitter anyway. Hopefully I'm gonna start fresh when I get down to the 'boot-camp' on wednesday. *Whispers: Hopefully...*)
Before I continue hauling crap again, I wanna share something I find breathtaking. Every once in a while I take a little sneak peak at The Kingston Lounge. When it's really gritty places I find myself drawn into each & every single snapshot. I always find beauty in them. I reckon it's like looking in the mirror 50 years from now...the experience is ever so present, but the beauty still remains. & somehow in all of that it's like time is none existing.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France.
