A Lighter Load

After a brief, but giggle-filled, reconnection with Molly, Stephen and Emma, it's off to the train station today for another cross-province odyssey.

For some reason, my bag is not as crammed full as when I left home. I can't think of anything I'm missing (apart from soap and its plastic travel container, left in the bathroom of room 232 of Arnprior's Quality Inn). If anything, there's more in the suitcase: a currently unusable laptop.

I'm not sure if I've packed more efficiently; my many Tetris forays into space management have always served me well. Regardless, a lighter load is always an apt and appreciated metaphor for carrying baggage and burdens. Soon enough I'll see my family again and all will be as it should!
