Just wanted everyone on my mailing list to know that our aforementioned housing dilemma is no longer a problem; a stack of miracles came through and we’ve found a nice and affordable place to live. We’ll still be renting, but it’s a good place for me and Tim and the kids and we’re all happy about it. We move in next month.
I’ll probably be a bit busy with the move for the next few weeks, especially the first part of January which will be hectic, so apologies if my output gets a little sparse at times through that period but that’s why. I’m really looking forward to having this done and being able to put all of my creativity back where it belongs.
Thank you all for how supportive you’ve been during this time. I feel really blessed to have such wonderful readers and supporters.

Best of luck to you guys Caitlin. I moved furniture as a job for several summers and family and friends as a volunteer a bunch of times, I’ve learned there’s something magical about the number five. 5 people working on moving day feels like almost twice as many as 4. I’ve never been sure exactly why, but it is. Last tested the effect in May in 90+ degree weather and it went super fast.
Your work is a constant source of nourishment to so many people. Here’s hoping your new shelter nurtures your creativity and spirit. Best of luck.

Good to know you have found a place. I listen to all your and Tim’s podcasts and enjoy your point of view.
Phil / December 23, 2021
Hi Caitlin and Tim
Another brilliant year of receiving your emails, thanks – hope all goes well for you and the kids with the move.
Bob Martin / December 22, 2021
Very happy for you and your family. I hope the move goes smoothly. Happy holidays, and thanks once again for all the elucidative writing you continually gift us with. My best to you!
Thorstein / December 22, 2021
Joy, peace, and love in your new year to you and yours, Caitlin, just as you have given those to us.
Theresa Barzee / December 21, 2021
You are our stack of miracles! Please take good care of yourselves! Blessings on all of you!
Jon Kemp / December 21, 2021
Moving can be really traumatic (not nearly as traumatic as being homeless, though…).
Hope it all goes smoothly and that you all manage to enjoy the festive season, somehow.
Gui / December 21, 2021
Hi, Caitlin! i’ve been following you for a few years but never commented here, I think. But when I saw this email, I just felt like saying I’m happy for you! Housing difficulties are soul crushing, I actually felt relief knowing you finally found your new place.
Much love from Holland, happy holidays!

Happy new… era :o)
Oakey Pruett / December 21, 2021
Splendid! I was worried that you and the family would end up in some awful place with freight trains roaring by every 20 minutes and shipping portals with moving vans and meth dealers and guns going off and…nah, you’d live outside first.
Happiest of holidays to you, Tim and the kids!
Tom / December 21, 2021
That’s lovely to hear, so pleased for you et al. Here’s to a productive 2022 and you in full flight again! ❤️
Einiyah / December 21, 2021

We’ve got a lot of work-in-progress, too, Sister.
Just call it “prepping”.
See, better now…

A new place from which to write…
I remember you saying in a previous post that you wanted to try new ways to express yourself in the coming year.
Well, isn’t this move timely!!!
All the best for the move, for the happiness and comfort of your family in a better dwelling and for everyone’s creativity… yours and theirs!
Mike liardet / December 21, 2021
All the best to you and yours in your new home!
Dónal deRóiste / December 21, 2021
Well done for tenacity Caitlin & thanks for your loyalty to the poor and disenfranchised people of this wretchedly abused Earth. Enjoy the move and the new beginning and don’t worry about output. It’ll come when you are ready. As the dogs of war are being unleashed you seem to be one of the few who is even barking about it. Pity we didn’t descend from Bonobos instead of aggressive Chimps. Oh well Happy New Year. dónal
Faruque / December 21, 2021

All the best for the move and good luck and joy in your new home.
Frank Shulse / December 21, 2021
I’m so happy you found a good place. I was starting to worry, especially with all the bad news coming out of Australia. I love your writing, but you deserve a break. Take all the time you need, and take some time to just relax and enjoy the move. We’ll be here when you get back online. You look just like my sister in that pic with Tim kissing your head. Makes it even easier to love you. Thanks so much for what you do.
Orwell / December 21, 2021
Wonderful! Keep on Caitlin!
Johnny / December 21, 2021
Good news Caitlin.
A ‘Christmas’ list for you and yours:
•Cardboard boxes from op shops, supermarkets, friends, and dare I say it, Bunnings (reasonably priced).
• Old pillow cases.
• Sturdy reusable plastic bags.
• Masking tape in a dispenser.
• Labels or a texta pen.
• Helping hands.
• Stretching exercises before lifting.
• Plenty of water.
• Patience, tolerance and a sense of humour
• Plenty of sleep.
We moved a year ago after twenty years in the bush. The shit we accumulated !! Bloody hell.
Kieren / December 21, 2021
Happy to see this. Best wishes!
F S / December 21, 2021

Missy Saugus / December 21, 2021
It’s okay, Caity! Take your time. I am so glad the stress is removed from your housing situation, and I wish you the best for you, Tim and the kids in your new place!! Congrats!! I love you, and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

Glad for you.

Along with everyone else, I’m delighted at your good news! Take the time you need to get settled back in. We will all be here when you get back.
Steve Shap / December 21, 2021
Congrats and good luck in the new place. Get some much-deserved “rest”, haha, and come back better than ever. We NEED your voice out here!
Helga Weber / December 21, 2021
There is not one reader of your articles who is not happy for you!
Wish more people could read you in Germany.
Mark Davis / December 21, 2021
Dilemma averted! Great news! Take care of your family, we’ll all be here when you get back!
Jeff Rudisill / December 21, 2021
Here’s wishing you the most successful move. It seems that the Universe was paying attention. I’m a firm believer that the Universe provides, though it may only be the raw materials.
Suggestion: get rid of everything you can. This is an opportunity to clear your your past, but be sure to take the children’s toys…or at least their favorites. Nothing like a move to offer an opportunity for a “clean start.”
You are an amazing and talented individual, whose voice is essential. May it be heard everywhere at this time of need.
Continue to nurture your goodness,
Guy Benintendi / December 21, 2021
I’m glad you found a place you like. Take some time off. You’ve earned it many times over. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Sherman Owens / December 21, 2021
Congratulations! Take your time and get settled. And thank you for every word you write, and for being who you are. Wishing you and yours the very best!
Richard Laidlaw / December 21, 2021
I do enjoy your take on the world and events, and your writing style. As to moving house – well, I’ve always found it can be fun, in retrospect. Best of luck with your move and we’ll see you when your cursor’s found a power-point. Cheers!
Hilary Jones / December 21, 2021
Congratulations! What a relief it must be. Great way to start the new year. Best wishes!
Guy / December 21, 2021
All the best for you and family in your new home .

Agnes de Bethune / December 21, 2021
Thanks for the update! I was freaking out for you and your family. Happy Christmas and New Year to you all!
Ellen / December 21, 2021
So glad for you!
IDIG / December 21, 2021
Best wishes. Thanks for your insight and writing.
We have moved quite a few times, so I will encourage you to get rid of stuff you don’t use anymore that are still in boxes from your last move!
Well, that was our experience.
Deborah Armstrong / December 21, 2021
Congrats! So glad that you guys found a place! <3
Howard Fallon / December 21, 2021
So glad you & your family found housing! And just in time for the holidays. Sweet.
