New apartment. New housemates. Missing furniture. Bags and boxes of things yet to be unpacked. Conflicts with accommodating everyone’s wants and habits. Quiet nights.
I’m left contemplating about years past.
2007 – Backpacking at Big Basin. Hiking in the rain until water soaked through our waterproof gear and one of our tents. Eight people packed like sardines into one tent the first night, it was unbearably humid and warm.
If I could turn back time, I would.
