Clearing out

What a week!  We have been working very hard this week.  Tension has run high, nerves have been frayed and, frankly, stepped on.  

We've been having a clearing out of the accumulation of the two households we brought together several years ago.  We've made discoveries about ourselves and each other through the process of letting go of the  fragments of our past lives.  We've had to, once again, say good-bye to loved ones whose belongings were kept as a bridge to a past that has passed.  We have distilled our memories to essentials.  

A couple of discoveries on my part are these: 1. a bad photograph does not improve with age, and 2. we could build a small house out of the books we have accumulated.  

We are letting go, saying good-bye, and lightening our load. 

At the end of the day a nice long soak.

In bocca al lupo. m & v


  1. Such a necessary part of life, cleaning out, letting go and moving on. Glad you are getting through it.

    1. I does, sometimes, seem to never end...m

  2. Funny, my dear, and poignant. Practical, too.
    Good on you both. // I hoped to get by for the sale, but I had to work. Accomplished something important. Yay for me!

    1. Thanks! We missed you, but glad you accomplished something. m)
