Paper Erase

June 20, 2017, Prescott-

My last day of Spring was spent, hydrating, of course.

There was a meeting for Hope Fest, the annual spiritual event,

that this year precedes the Bicentenary of Baha’u’llah’s birth,

by a week.

My main concern, otherwise, was clearing out the dining area closets.

These were filled with lots of stationery,

extra greeting cards, loose-leaf binders, paper clips,

and a couple of board games, which were once meant

to stimulate Penny’s interest, in the last year of her life.

She loved that I tried, but it was all too much.

I will keep the games, and one box of holiday cards,

but it will likely be to the Women’s and Children’s shelter,

with the rest, tomorrow.

My clean-up goes on.

One comment was about the minimalist garden.

We will soon see a minimalist apartment.

  1. I’ve been seeing “tiny houses” all over the place – TV, magazines, FB and the newspaper. Lots of people are shedding conspicuous consumerism in favor of minimalism. There is much to be said in favor of streamlining life, yet I’m still attached to my “stuff”. Perhaps when I retire I will divest myself of the accumulation of a lifetime (at least some of the professional paraphernalia).

    • I kept my professional items, long after I was done working as a counselor. I am now preparing for an eventual move- either to wherever the kids end up or to a smaller, quieter community- or a semi-nomadic life. We will see what the next 2-3 years bring.
