Since our shipping container from Port-au-Prince arrives tomorrow, I thought I’d share a few photos of our Haitian movers boxing up our lives two months ago. These images suggest the scope of what will be delivered to our old Kentucky home tomorrow morning.
And, I might add, these 66 boxes will arrive at a downtown Victorian already full of our pre-Haiti treasures–a home over-flowing with furniture and books and art–the memories of lives well-lived, a globe well-trotted.
The question remains–where, in name of all things packable and not-so-packable, will we put Port-au-Prince in a home filled to over-flowing with India, Afghanistan, Thailand, Sri Lanka. I know the planet is a well-populated place, but do we really need so much of it in our living room?
So, wish us a world of luck over the next several days, as my partner Sara and I sort mountains of memories–66 boxes of passion for Port-au-Prince.
