Day 7

One week from today we close. We had a great weekend of packing. We are probably 90% packed.

Today I get a lovely day out of the house. Creative Lunch with Justine, a highlight, errands and then we have dinner with 2 darling young women that use to work for John at the station.

John has a day of phone calls as he continues to orchestrate the move.

Barb send me a postcard that says: "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." Jer 6:16

Jane commented in a recent phone call that I am finally getting to live my dream. I have wanted to move to Madison for 20 years.

Alice asked if I had any regrets in my life. And I said just one. And that it was that I had never lived anywhere good. (Sorry Cedar Rapids, Rochester, Eau Claire you were all sort of good enough at the time.)

In one week I get in the Miata and drive off into the sunset to a whole new life. A life that at our age I feel privileged to get. Most people our age doing settled later in life things. We will get to start all over and in my case live the life I should have been living all along.
