Packing my things into boxes, displaced and out of order, I think will remember when I get there.
Uprooted and in motion, I carry things with me.
Unpacking some, forgetting others, I remake my home with objects collected along the way. Boxes of graters and mixers,
give me a familiar context to which I return each day.
When the duration of the unsettlement begins to weigh heavy, so do the objects. I find, discard and collect as I look for order while reconstructing the home.
I rely on new relationships for a new foundation. With generosity and gratitude, I am rooted.
