Today is leave my home on Whidbey Island. My house is still staged with furniture, art, towels, and other human needs to sell it. Some are my own and others were placed by a realtor with an eye for staging life that someone else might find appealing in what is really a damn near empty house.

In this improvisation I wanted to capture a point of transition–a house without the bodies to make it a home–sounds to resonate the silence to come. I may have other opportunities yet to record here before it’s said and done, but today I moved on mentally and physically.
