It’s 5:25 AM and I’ve been up since 2:30 taking care of … stuff. My home/boat was hauled out of the water and is “on the hard” in storage with literally all of my possessions on board. I go back for a couple of hours two days from now in the morning to “button it up”, then leave for the East Coast on Saturday morning, April 11.

I noticed driving back from the storage marina this afternoon that the neighborhood and stores along the freeway just before we got to Sausalito kind of looked like I was passing through an area I was visiting, not a place I lived. It was weird. More on that later.

As of right now, I have slightly more stuff than my baggage allowance on my friends’ boat where I’m staying until I depart. What’s left will go on the boat when I go back in two days. Sorting, last minute visits, and a VERY busy schedule for the next four days. I’m exhausted.

Things have “come together” amazingly well for this venture. I have a solid sense that is the right thing to do at the right time.

So, ’nuff for now. I’m going to try to get some more sleep, and feel OK in having at least posted SOMETHING! More to come, I promise. … and better!
