Moon and sun are busy dancing. The tide has turned in our home. There has been lots of sorting and assessing of our material possessions. I am sure I have fewer things than some, but I am certainly no renunciate. The boxes are piling up, the donations to Goodwill grow like black, shining blobs filled with could have beens and what use to be. It feels good to let go, to toss the old clothes of a life that has been transformed. My daughter and I are sifting together, sorting through all of our time together, deciding together which items have value. It is funny, the items that had tremendous value are now tossed on the growing heap with nary a thought of remorse.

The closets are sighing from relief. The drawers are sitting taller in their runners, relieved of the burden of too many socks. There are small piles here and there that have yet to find a home, but it looks as though space is opening up.
I think we are both trying to forget that she is moving away...
