I pick up a rental car tomorrow to transport the things that are too delicate for the van or things needed when I get to Campion. The movers come on Saturday and Sam and I leave on Sunday (weather permitting, I hate the weather uncertainty of this time of year).
As I survey the carnage in my room it is easy to understand hoarders. At a certain point the temptation to give up on cleaning up the mess becomes very strong. I was ready to throw in the towel this morning and simply adapt to the squalor. There is no food anywhere in the mess but the only way to get around is to follow paths. The filing cabinet, dresser, closets, and desk are empty. The top of the desk is chaos as are a few of the corners (no photos included). I'll get done but certainly won't enjoy it.
Attached are some photos, all but one of them of Campion Center from my visit earlier this year. It will be a wonderful place to take many photos in various lighting conditions and seasons (outdoors). I will be buying a flash unit and I hope stronger tripod once settled there.
The only non-Campion photo is from the Saturday Flower Market in Taipei. I wanted one of these "water features" but there was no way to transport it.
