Housekeeping

I have almost completed the mother of all housekeeping chores in my office. I have sorted and culled though nearly 24 years of bills, legal papers, program listings and project files. While it was nice to go and wade around in all those papers; they invoked both good and bad memories It really was good to purge the 80 to 100 pounds of papers I have accumulated over the years and have deemed, somewhat reluctantly, unessential. This is a weight that has been an albatross around my neck or probably a better portrayal, the plaque that has formed in my psyche, constricting the “vessels” until it can no longer function. The purge is a good thing and is keeping with my commitment to move forward and get on with my life.
