Until the dust settles

So this is how it is. I am in a place of limbo and unable to properly feed my blogling child. Today is Wednesday, not Monday or Friday, but I happen to be near a computer. I am in the middle of moving my household belongings from one state to another. My life is presently in boxes.

I plan to come back and post again before I head West but it may be on yet another non-bookend day; Friday might be a little quirky for me.

In the meantime, may I suggest to you that you clean one closet, or one drawer, or empty one box in your basement or garage today. And then do it again every other day for the rest of the summer. This is something you will not regret doing. I am waist-deep in stuff I forgot I had, don’t need and could’ve passed along to someone else.

Moving is hard work, emotionally and physically. But it’s refreshing — in a bracing kind of way — to reduce the volume of your possessions. The weight of having so much isn’t keenly felt until you begin to rid yourself of some of it.

Until another near-a-computer day. . .

    First let me say you are one of my favorite authors. I really love the Rachel Flynn mysteries.
    Second my mother recently got remarried and moved out (somewhat she left most of her stuff(lots of stuff). Anyway my sister, friend, and myself have been going through places like my bathroom and cleaning out and organizing. IT is a wonderful feeling to through away and donate. I love that feeling. I wish my mother shared it. My sister and her are pack rats and have clothe obsessions. I think everyone should do as you are asking.

    Hey Brittanie.
    More power to ya! And thanks for the encouraging words about my books. Affirmation is like a tonic.
