Enso Moving - Simple and Profound

On Friday I spent the whole day packing up our house which just closed last night.

Look - we had Orbs! Cool!!!

Monday morning - view out the front door - the bin is full and the moving truck has just arrived to take away the things I am bringing to my new place.

Last item from the truck - this was a bureau that I have lived with since I was in grade 1.

Done!


I thought this was funny - taking pictures while jammed tight in an elevator.

My new place!
It's a funny thing about perspective. There are so many ways you can look at every situation. I have lived in houses for so long, always into gardening, etc .. and now I am living in a high rise - wow!
I used to look at these buildings almost like cages and not wanting to live in one, now they represent freedom. It's an interesting adjustment - I don't even have to take out the garbage, and they are really into composting and recycling here, no shoveling - there are a couple pools, nice grounds, ..Ah, Zoey's here walking all over the desk and my keyboard - he seems to be adjusting quite nicely also - ..ok, now hes settled on my lap. He's much more cuddly than usual. & I am spending as much time home as possible to be with him. He meows a bit more than usual (like a talking meowing), but hes pretty content.

Right now I am sitting here in this corner. I have a new desk, big -glass and silver, very modern which was given to me, and a vase of fresh cut flowers, and I am overlooking a very cool view of other buildings and the city all lit up at night. It's quite beautiful.

Angus just happened to have finishing nails in his pocket to fix my bureau - how amazing is that!
Huge, huge thanks to Angus and Richard for all the help!!!

Hanuman Chalisa

The Hanuman Chalisa is Tulsidas' most famous and wisely read poem of 40 verses written in praise of Lord Hanuman. Many recite it as a prayer on a regular basis (daily or weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays). It is said to provide inner-strength and deliverance from ones troubles.

Hi Michelle,
Another thing in common - cool!
Yes, it is really nice here, except that I have been waiting and putting together furniture etc all day - what a way to spend a day off, but its exciting seeing it all coming together. Hugs! R
