Where Am I?

I'm reading only a few entries, randomly, and responding to even fewer.

I owe everybody email and/or responses.

For a week or more I've been immersed in possessions: sorting, packing, moving, shifting, unpacking, selling, choosing, discarding. Over and over.

I'm not moving house, but I am, shall we say, completing the last few moves, while I prepare for someone else to move in here. It's tiring physical work, but I'm finding it exhilarating. I'm actually cackling as I stack books to be sold. (I'm up to 20 boxes to sell, 7 to donate.) Sometimes I am also breaking into tears. Letting go isn't always easy. But it's time.

Meanwhile, here are a couple of clips of Bonnie Raitt singing duets. I was looking for "Sweet Forgiveness," because it's been an earworm/filk for me all day. ("Tweet forgiveness.") I found these instead.
