with the change of seasons comes the Great Closet Switch. I have immense closets, but like to have my seasonal clothes in the bedroom closets away from fumes and dremel dust and all manner of possibility in the studio storage closet. so i heave great armloads of stuff back and forth, dumping them on the bed in between. this also gives me a chance to go through things to give away, send to the cleaners, etc.
It also got me thinking about how my email address box is jammed with names and addresses of people who are Busy...people who send an email once in a blue moon just to say they are busy. Yes, I realize that - I haven't heard from you. So, I will be cleaning that out, as well. Call me crazy, but if a person is too busy to drop a note updating on their life, or to inquire upon your breathing status, then what thread is there? yes - i am a constant communicator. and yes, i realize most people do not write, call, email, connect in the sheer volume that i do. i want you to feel special and noticed on this big earth. i want you to know that there is someone who is thinking about you and saying little prayers for you. because just thinking about someone is nice, but doesn't let the person know you are doing it. i am also busy...2 very needy animals (3 if you count the husband), art shows, fundraisers, my own life to prepare for and complete, house cleaning, dinner making, and all the Becky Home Ec-y things you do too. And i still find time to send my heart out every single day to those that matter...not every single person every single day, but i bet if you thought about it, you've received an email from me in the past week or two. so i will wean that list...i will have to assume that if i haven't received an email from you in a while, that you are letting our friendship mellow into that fuzzy "Somebody that i used to know" area...which is fine, as it certainly lowers my expectations from you and i can relax. and i'm not feeling angry or upset...just busy and in need of reciprocal relationships.
it is a cleansing day.
wishing you dust-free corners and gleaming floors....
