Hermit crabs have moving down to an art. No furniture, no boxes to pack or unpack… just wedge yourself securely into your shell and off you go!
It’s a bit more complicated for a Homo sapiens. I should know. I changed my address last weekend—my 18th move since leaving home—and left again 4 days later on a long-anticipated trip to visit friends and give a presentation on urban ecology to the Oklahoma City Master Naturalist chapter. Now I’m sitting in the Will Rogers World Airport waiting for a flight back to my new place and my new life. I should be able to dig myself out from all the corrugated cardboard in time to have a new post ready to publish on Saturday, September 10. Thanks for your patience!
