New life

Early in the novel The Grapes of Wrath there’s s scene when the man in the bulldozer strikes the Joad family home on the side, knocking the structure askew and off its foundation. It’s that moment when the family knows their world there is at an end, and they must look and move into the future. That’s a little what it’s like to go away and come back. The world here is knocked forward by time and different. I can’t expect the same life. And must instead hoist my bags and move again to the new life.
