This is not to say that packing up
to head out is stress free
it is just the choices of what comes along
and what is left behind are not as complicated
There are those things that get left behind;
the squeezed out tube of toothpaste for instance
or the worn out footwear or that
purple t-shirt that no longer fits
Objects get left behind,
lightening the load.
What doesn't get left behind are
those other things not loaded
into a backpack or suitcase.
Those are always packed
and the room they take up
is of variable dimensions.
I'm packing up and moving on.
