So I haven't spoken in awhile, in a long while, about my pending Airstream lifestyle.
It's still out there, on the horizon (and literally in the back corner) - and tomorrow morning I meet with my architherapist and I'm hopeful.
When my Mother's cancer started spreading...over a month ago now...I decided that the new house was something that would happen - when it happens. It's given me time to accomplish a few things that will ultimately make Airstream Life more pleasurable.
(I know, I know - you're thinking - what could make such a luxurious life...more luxurious?)
Now, living in a 27.5 foot aluminum trailer is sounding nicer and nicer as time goes by - it sounds, well, - simple - and today in lab meeting I caught myself saying that I'll probably be spending alot of time in a chair, under the Airstream's awning, drinking any beer that is on sale and sold in cases. I can see it.
So I've been, over the months, simplifying. I'm getting by with less and less.
It's not such a bad thing, really - it isn't.
But the most exciting thing that I have accomplished of late is that I have copied all of my CDs into my iTunes library - over 25 GB's worth. I love it. I've never been a huge fan of iTunes, but I am now a huge fan of easy - and so now all of my CDs are packed away - yet I still have access to everything - and I also now have an adapter for my car so I can play my iPod through my car speakers.
I feel so musically organized.
And having all of this music - all of my music - with me in the Airstream is extremely comforting. I would hate to be musically-deprived.
(Now, if I could only squeeze my clothes washer and dryer in there somehow...).
But music! It's a must.
Charles Mingus. Moanin'. Even in the Airstream.
