Echo, echo, echo

Time is a circus, always packing up and moving away.                   Ben Hecht 

I suppose we’re like time.  With only 2 months remaining, you can imagine how organized (obsessive/squirrely, crazy) I’m becoming.  People are coming and going, and our once nicely decorated apartment is being taken away piece by literal piece.  I, of course, am content to live and eat in the bedroom (it’ll keep cleaning down to a minimum, plus, I can organize the moving piles more effectively), while Juan, being far more civilized, finds it practical to keep a few “necessary objects” like a table and chairs.  We have found a happy medium and have sold the majority of large pieces of furniture.  Now the place is starting to echo.  This is a good sign!

Nowhere to sit.

And so it begins…

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it. ~ John Steinbeck

Well, for those of you who know me know that I love quotes, so I had to choose an appropriate one to “christen” my blog and to remind myself that I can’t always control my environment. So it’s a little ironic, or appropriate, that my first picture is about chaos in our apartment.

I have to credit for the name of the blog to my kindred spirit, in all things chocolate and sarcastic, Cécile.
