Bird song , and hammering from down the block, wind through the ash trees, and the whirring fan: the new sounds at the studio are a balm after the jack hammers and trucks on Beacon Street.
The move out was like any move-out - hideous, especially in the final days when all the corners start growing items one swears to have never seen before. But thanks to Lizzie and Corinne, my husband and his friend, and Michael who is the new tenant, it all came to pass. Notwithstanding the items left in the garage, we are moved out!
Moving in is another challenge. All those never-before-seen items and others I see everyday haven't found their home yet and are cluttering up tables and the entrance to the studio. But all the bins are stacked on shelves, tables are set up, buckets put away and the office is coming together.
I'm grateful for the easy pace of summer with time to recover from the transition. I'll be preparing last minute details for the wedding at the Harvard Museums on the 26th. We're booked through most of September so the working logistics in the new space will probably need to be tweaked.
The stray items will find a home, Hortense will be moved from the floor to a table, the office will get organized, Brides will be married, flower gifts will be sent: all in good time.
