July 2004

first pack out

(originally posted on

July is here and plans are going well for leaving on my trip abroad. The movers have come and gone, leaving behind an empty apartment with the last remains of possessions I own. All the things I had planned for are changing with last minute things I hadn't forseen. Fortunately, I've been able to account for things that would take up my time and prepare accordingly. I'm always amazed at the stuff you collect over the years that seems important at the time but when its packed and taken away from you, you wonder what was everything that use to occupy the space around you. I wonder what it will feel like to see those items again in 5, 10, 15 years. I'll probably feel like I'm opening my own personal time capsule when that happens.
