Clump #217: [Finally] finish clearing kitchen table. Day 13 of 30-day challenge.
This will be short but sweet. I delegated today’s clump to our younger daughter …
and now a kitchen table is reborn. Kind of a boring photo, but very exciting in person, believe me! Tea anyone?
A quote from one of the bits I clipped during my recent newspaper purge has been turning around in my head. It’s from The Philadelphia Inquirer, the “Side Show, Your Daily Dose of Gossip” (I never miss it), by the wonderful Tirdad Derakhshani: “Jeff Bridges lays it out The modern obsession with being positive blinds us to the darkness and negativity all life forms need, Jeff Bridges declares. ‘Imperfection and perfection go so hand in hand,’ the Giver star tells the Wall Street Journal, echoing his fave author, Alexander Solzhenitsyn. ‘Our dark and our light are so intertwined that by trying to push the darkness or the so-called negative aspects of our life to the side … we are preventing ourselves from the fullness of life.'” Hmm. Makes me picture the Yin-Yang symbol.
The table top’s perfection will not last long, soon to be darkened by the endless stream of clutter, but I will enjoy it thoroughly while it lasts.
