Packing up, Moving on

June 5, 2012

Last year at this time I was … two years ago, three?

Packing up and moving on has been my way for many years, lifetimes. The last three years have been particularly transitory, even for a self-labeled Gypsy Rogue Scholar.

Presently, I’m packing up to head over to Bunkhouse X at CAMP MAGIC MACGUFFIN. To prepare for the trip I found my pack and realized that I hadn’t unpacked from my recent adventure to Burlington, VT for the M. Ed. graduation of my dear friend mae.

Having a pack that’s still packed is a dirty-sock-stale-half-eaten-snack-ridden reminder that I’m in constant motion. Searching. Not yet finding.

Maybe I’ll find what I’m looking for in Bunkhouse X. Most likely, I will enjoy a few campfires, friendly riots, panty raids, and sing-a-longs, and then I will move on. Searching.

Next year this time I will be … in two years, three?

    Hope your search brings you to Bunkhouse 3. We could use a tambourine player.

    The image is stunning. Thought it was a painting at first with all of those rich textures. How did you do that?

    You set the bar for essential packing. Come shake that tambourine in Bunk X!

    I hope the first stop at Camp is casa bava. Waiting patiently.

    I already left a comment but somehow in my semi-awake state managed to mangle it. [Apologies if you get this twice]
    I’m so glad you have time this summer to visit Camp MacGuffin. You are a beautiful addition to Bunkhouse X; there will be much revelry, I am sure!
    I might sneak a canoe across the lake for a couple nights to visit you.
    As for your packed gear- inspirational. It’s a pleasure watching you traverse the world in search of adventure.
