365 days, Day 112

Anyone who believes that men are the equal of women has never seen a man trying to wrap a Christmas present (Author unknown)

The work of art must seize upon you, wrap you up in itself and carry you away. It is the means by which the artist conveys his passion. It is the current which he puts forth, which sweeps you along in his passion (Pierre-Auguste Renoir)

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it (William Arthur Ward)

Execu-move arrived today to pack up our belongings. The first quote above does not apply to the 6 men who wrapped everything in sight: they were amazing! And the finished items look like an art work of Christo Jeanne-Claude.

My heart and eyes are very close to tears. The physical act of our possessions being wrapped represents 27 years of my life being wrapped. The end of a chapter.

Fond memories.
