I move tomorrow!

“What’s past is prologue,” Antonio tells us in Shakespeare’s The Tempest. That play always confuses me, because there are so many similarly named characters to other Shakespeare shows I know better (namely Twelfth Night). The confusion may make the statement all the more accurate, because life IS confusing.

What I do know is that this feels like the end of a chapter, or maybe a novel in a series – the one entitled “Between 2 Schools.” The last 4 years have been at turns terrible and wonderful, but I do believe that they have given me a wonderful foundation to get back into the classroom for a bit. I wrote about all that a bit ago, so I won’t delve too deeply there.

In any case, I’m all packed up and ready to get down to Corvallis. I never unpacked, actually, moving from Portland to Camas, all my stuff has been in boxes the past 5 months. Being in Asia, obviously, doesn’t predispose one to needing most of one’s things, and besides that what do I have that my mom doesn’t? So they stayed in their boxes. Tomorrow, though, I’ll begin unpacking and making a new home – one with new friends, new roommates, new connections, and new adventures.

What’s past may be prologue, but there’s a whole lot more to be written!
