New Home Alone --- Days 11/72 & 73

Walk: 1. Up and Down, Up and Down, Repeat 2. Same

Distance: 1. 4.7 miles  2. 2 miles

Today Ciwt was suddenly spent from packing up closets filled with objects of numerous types, sizes, shapes, weight - not to mention personal history.  It's tricky and takes creativity and concentration getting all those things and memories organized and into to some containable and portable form. Also stamina to go up and down the many stairs in her soon to be former place. 

So for the first time in a little over 40 years, she just sat alone in her almost empty new home. 

At some point in her trips back and forth she'd brought a padded stadiuim seat. She had also brought a book to hold down the paper cut outs of her coming furniture.  Turned out the book was about Matisse. The simple seat was comfortable.  Her new place was quiet. The sun was pouring in her large filtered glass sliding doors. And with no planning at all, Ciwt was surrounded with her most treasured life elements -  Sun, Light, Home, a Book, Matisse, Stillness, Solitude - and nothing to do but just savor them for a few precious hours.
