Take one reasonably settled existence.
Add some hopes, some dreams, a dash of ageing.
Throw together the past, the present, the future, some friends, some family, a pinch of mortality.
Fold this mixture into a house full of possessions – furniture, books, china and cooking pots - and a shed full of stuff.
Wrap in butchers paper and pack in cardboard boxes.
Pour into a 20-foot container.
Drive down the driveway, taking in all that you see
Adding slowly that this will be the last time
Lock the padlock on the gate - with you keyless on the other side
Ship goods across Bass Strait and follow in ute.
