I was actually thinking, as I wrote this thought yesterday, that despite spending the day together you probably didn’t think it was all that unusual. As we discussed a bit last night, and as you mentioned above, I think our boxes are very much tied to the individual. I only observed yesterday’s activities (and those of the day before) in retrospect to three years ago through my own lens of life. For someone working in Sydney, or living in Canberra, the experiences would seem rather trivial.
It would be easy for me to believe that I have no boxes left to get rid of, but the truth is, as you said, we all have our own boxes and some are bigger than others. Perhaps there is always a ‘bigger box’.
