Music in the background…clinking jars in the kitchen…hustling feet across the floor, upstairs and down…an odor of exhaust as the final vehicular tunings are accompished…rustling plastic bags…a general feeling and look of dishevelment throughout the house…here and there the sound of tape and scissors as a box recieves a strap or two of tape to hold it for a week…an aroma of food cooking–all day long for a few days…a tiredness and hastiness in everyone’s actions…billowing cool breezes to chill those packing the trailer…now and again a laugh as something breaks a smile out of the tired family…such are the sights, sounds, and smells of moving week…and I am sure that I have forgotten something….
