This morning sitting at the kitchen table I find myself enveloped in chaos, the moving kind. It is an insanity that comes after squatting in one location for nine years. Layers of stuff accumulate after that much time. And as the sifting process proceeds, you tend to ask yourself more often than not, “Do I need that?” The specter of moving boxes keeps the answers honest. In all honesty, the physical move across the state is not the scary part. I have been there and done that before. It is the time crunch. I start fall classes at the University of Washington in eight days. The worst part is I am not quite sure where we are moving. We have a couple of places lined up. However, as every veteran of reality knows nothing is for sure until it happens. So, in light of the chaos of the next two weeks, The Thoughtful Ninja will be on hiatus. Courage.
Thank you for reading.
