This has been the 2nd weirdest 2 years in my life. Since Don died I have been on another odyssey. It went askew from the first move. Could not get the car transferred, the weight around the neck of possessions. Being owned by the things we have acquired. By the time I solved that problem it was August. In the spring came the Occupy and 9 months of revolt. I followed those strange days into a morass of local politics from which I am still not extracted. They should be somewhat resolved by the end of next month and it will be time to seek the next challenge. I did not make it out to the beach but a friend gave me a candle to light and remember those departed. In the end not a bad way to end the year.
