Changes

I haven’t blogged recently as much as I normally do. It’s been a challenge to keep up with posting/queuing up the almost-20 articles and reviews and interviews submitted for this month’s New Wineskins edition, “Why I Left / Why I Stay.”

And changes have been taking place in the Brenton household. Not all of them are for public consumption, but this one certainly is:

My wife, Angela Laird Brenton, has been appointed the new provost at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, North Carolina. Her position begins August 1.

So early next week, our house goes on the market. And this weekend, we’re de-personalizing it — taking down the family pictures and packing away the collectible tchotchkes to give it that “Why, I’m ready for you to live in me!” HGTV-look. In fact, we’re already starting to pare down and pack generally.

We’ll make a trip, hopefully in June, to go house-hunting in the hills of western North Carolina.

I don’t know what I’ll be doing there, but I have a strong feeling that — given what I’ve been doing this weekend — I’ll be doing a lot of unpacking.

Your prayers and good wishes are always welcome.

  1. Congrats to your wife and best wishes on the move Keith. My wife Ann and I downsized and moved a few years ago. Getting rid of half of our junk/treasures was a great experience – I recommend it. 🙂

  2. It’s hard for me, KB. I come from a long line of packrats. Were it not for the Great Depression, I’m afraid my mom would have family artifacts from medieval England!
