More on Clearing Out

I am very soothed by order.  We've spent a couple of very dis-orderly weeks clearing out once necessary but now curiously un-necessary items from our lives.  We now face the dregs of what we did not let go of (yet) and the task of fitting them into our personal puzzle that is home.

It's like taking the house and shaking it through a sifter. Whatever is left behind must go. 

We allowed ourselves a truckload, the rest was sorted then sold, given to charity, or thrown away. We have now left behind an empty storage site for someone else to fill.

Just like Marley's Ghost we have been dragging, by an invisible chain, the weight of the accumulation of our lives and even some of the accumulation of our ancestors.  We are finding we are breathing easier without that weight suffocating us any longer.  

In bocca al lupo. m & v


  1. Mmmmm, breathing in serenity, breathing out clutter, things, stuff, appendages, junk!
    Ahhh, that's better...
    m-e :)
