All that's left of Dave's house

*


This is command central, a single chair in a room full of corrugated memories.

Everything is packed, the house is quiet. Stacks of boxes clutter the once-beautiful Morris manse, and the only thing connected to the outside world is my trusty laptop. The dog's at my feet and I'm having coffee. It's a sad day, the "last stand" at the house my wife and I shared.

The silence has set me in a state of solemn reverie. Things never work out exactly the way you want - but they work out.

Tomorrow is a new day. See you on the other side.

Good luck, Dave. We'll think good thoughts on this end.

So poignant.

Best to you, my friend.

I'm looking forward to reading more "Dave" as soon as you get settled in.

Ugh! Like a blow to the stomach! You're right you know, things do work out in the way they're supposed to but is hard to get out of the way and let it happen. My thoughts are with you my friend. Chin up, stiff upper lip and all that. This too will pass.

Good luck with moving day and the new place. Wish I could be there to help you settle in! Have a drink when you're done for me!

well, good luck with the move and make sure all sides of the boxes are labeled....there's nothing worse than getting a 300 lb. "Crystal Box" in the guest bathroom.

Sorry for your pain. The universe has a way of kicking you in the crotch when you're not paying attention, but it usually makes up for it later. The best of luck to you Dave. hope that your life starts to resemble your vision for it soon.
