Loose Ends – and Milestones

I just moved 2.34 cubic metres of stuff, mostly books, into the London house from an enormous freight truck. The stuff had been riding on the ocean for a couple of weeks, and its arrival makes me feel so much less divided, wrapping up two years of trans-Altantic commuting. Home is where your stuff is, I guess. I don’t know how much I’ll unpack though – in a few weeks I start at the OII and after viewing every property on the market, I finally found a flat I’ll share during the week with new colleague/old friend Bernie Hogan. At least the commute is getting shorter . . .

But before the Montreal phase of my life wraps up, there’s one more loose end (or is it a milestone?):
