We moved to Montreal last week. It was a while in the planning, and I’m very happy to be a resident Canadian again. We drove all of our possessions from New Orleans to Montreal in a very large rented box truck in three days. We arrived in the middle of a snow storm (what was the ice storm in Vermont). We moved all our furniture, 22 boxes of books, pots and pans, artwork, clothing, and our 2006 Honda Metropolitan motor-scooter up a slippery set of outdoor spiral stairs in the snow. We found an illegal parking place for our truck, and went to sleep (in the apartment). Our new apartment is much smaller than our house in New Orleans, but it suits me better. It’s in an old building much like many that I knew as a kid, and smells familiar, which must be a product of the age and the building materials I guess. Everyone in our neighborhood (near where I grew up, but in a Frencher area) is so fashionable, it’s going to take a bit of catching up. New Orleans had a questionable influence on my wardrobe.
All are welcome to come visit. We even have a spare bed. I have a new cellphone number but I can’t remember it. I’m so looking forward to starting a new life in my old hometown.
