I've been thinking about home a lot lately. This is our last home in a state of chaos as we packed everything to get ready to move here. It's amazing the stories our things tell about us - even those things we've left behind. We no longer have that cactus, because I discovered I don't like to live with the defensiveness of a prickly plant, or those chairs, which were Shannon's, though looking at them now I can literally feel what it was like to sit on them. The teak piece is in our living room and I'm so proud we figured out how to make some changes to it and have it become our entertainment unit. Our stuff really does, in so many ways, hold pieces of who we are, who we have been and who we are becoming.
I know it wasn't that long ago Jamie that we went and saw the Bluenose together (although if feels like a long time) in Lunenburg but yesterday was her big re-launch! Can you believe it? From this to a finished ship in a year and a half! It makes me think about how we can re-invent the past, make it better and move on.
