In the last few hours I've packed 38 boxes full of books and other things. I've got 16 days to pack the rest, which is actually a lot. Also, my new place is just 10 minutes' walk from here.
I think we're not even a decade from people setting up house moves on the basis of labor being so inexpensive that no other labor can price it anywhere near; and yet. And yet. And yet we can't let labor manage itself. This is a longer conversation, if for no other reason than...well, than...let's come back here.
What I mean is, if labor ever gets so cheap, there's a problem. And I'll address this soon.
Meanwhile, I'll continue filling bankers' boxes with books. and looking forward to the move.
