unghosting

For the first time in a year i have a room of my own.  There is no one to blame for this situation other than myself.  i gave up my room in Tupelo and then various temporary room situations i had so that other people, who i perceived had greater need, could land in rooms in the community.  But now i am back in my favorite building in the room Angie left when she moved to Philly.

And there is a slightly mysterious process of unpacking.  Mysterious because perhaps 1/5 of the things which have gotten stored as mine are not mine, for when i had a room it was the way station for many an interesting wayward person, many of whom left me presents.  So as Sara and i were unpacking me last night one of the larger piles was “Stuff of known people who dont live in Tupelo (anymore)”. So there was a box of Angie’s awards and Shiloh’s books and Tobias‘s Love Letters and Lylette’s Transoceanic shipments and then several boxes of unrecognizable things.

i asked Sara to take on this vexing process in which we discovered a myriad lost and otherwise displaced things.  We decided that the best way to take on this project was drunk and in a hurry.  Fortunately, we are both lightweights so a couple of beers and a couple of Mike’s hard lemonades later and we were good to go.  There was a period in which there were 3 dozen piles of various objects rescued from boxes.  But we agreed on only doing this for 100 minutes, and it all vanished back into boxes and under m newly relocated bed by 10 PM so we could still watch Annie Hall, before drifting off to sleep.

    ah, i was hoping you were going to find my box that i left in keenan’s care – it supposedly went up to kaweah attic and then vanished…it’s full of rainbow coloured skirts, french herbal books, love letters, workshop notes and dreams.

      ahhh….good memories…i remember laughing wildly as the spaghetti pans we were trying to seperate came flying apart and splattered us…your love letters pop up in the most unexpected of places here too, a loving across many miles, with evidence scattered across many countries

    @Anissa: i should get your snail mail address from Madge, so i can send you a real love letter. And i tell the princess from the kingdom of wisdom story every few days and think of you each time when i do.

    w/ appreciation and deep affection from the other side of the world
