What’s in a move . . . ?

Dear Friends,

I have been involved with another move.  There is a pattern in my existence and that is one of constant change.  The beauty of life is that the only thing we can count on is change and I’m a forerunner in that regard.

I’ve moved 4 times in the past 3 1/2 years.  I’ve moved dozens of times in my adult life.  It is exhausting, exhilarating, exciting, daunting and an opportunity for personal growth, purging, donating, downsizing and rightsizing. 

Thank you for your patience and your understanding.  We’re getting back to ‘normal’ shortly!
