Today has been a little on the frantic side. It was nice to feel the thrill of ticking things of the list in preparation, but I'm not sure I like what that feeling does to my soul. I'm sure there must be a better way, a better attitude, a better balance between efficient doing and contemplative treasuring. Anyways, along with other miscellaneous errands, I'm doing my best to leave my trim clients in good shape. That means trying to predict when the van is actually leaving and attempting to trim everybody in those last few days.
I'm liking this bandana, 'twas a birthday present from my brother:

This packing business makes a mess. I've been in front of the sewing machine quite often, making bags for various things. More on that later. My goal is to pack light and useful. I don't want to take anything that won't get used often and then cut that in half. This goal has caused lots of life purging in general. I've gotten rid of lots of clothes and things not often used. I figure if I think I can live for two months out of the back of a van without it, its status should be questioned.

So another trim for a favorite client at 6:30am will be a great way to start the day tomorrow! But first I have to go clean off my bed so I can get some sleep. Thanks for checking out my new space! Love you all!
