WOW! susan is almost on her way! It has been a long and difficult journey to get to this point. May the change be everything you have hoped it would be. Bon voyage to this new phase of life.
De-cluttered of R! It was wonderful having him here for almost 12 days. As I worried about him leaving early enough to get to Montreal at a reasonable time: 10 passed, then 11, then we had to go to the Thrift Warehouse before he left... a cabinet that would fit in a specific space and improve the situation, so we came back for the pick-up and went back for the solid wood cabinet---Oops! too tall when we got it into house! I need to find someone to cut off about 8 inches and re-do it in a civilized manner. Then it will do the job and two other cabinets will go elsewhere and the china show case will finally have a home base. Maybe Dan can do it... It would have been perfect but for the ladder to the upstairs.
In the meantime, R left about 2 and phoned from Renfrew at 4 to let me know he was now going to be on civilized roads for the rest of the trip. After he stops at places of interest - thrift shops...
He really is recognizing that he has too much stuff and seriously looking at a future of divesting. Another dozen or so books today. Reading The Organized Mind was helpful in many ways. Also an intro to Thich Nhat Hanh via a little calendar I bought for my grandson. I was stunned that R had never heard of this amazing human; he loved the quotes in the calendar.
