The clutter we keep

A week from now, in this part of our galaxy, the planet mercury will initiate the universe’s way of including idleness in the natural scheme of things. If we know better, we would do well to take mercury’s retrograde as a cue to sit back, relax and try to sort out accumulated things. Around this time, whether consciously or not, lots of stuff will be disposed, closets decluttered, rooms, offices and homes reorganized.

When it comes to emotional closets though, I am not sure how it can be kept clean, efficient and clutter-free. Not even home improvement guru, Martha Stewart has come up with her version of the “easy steps” to get rid of emotional baggage. Perhaps she has too much of her own and is just as helpless as the rest of us.
