Clump #263: Give away Victoria and Tea Time magazines; day twenty-one of National Blog Posting Month.
This is a post about finally getting real. I have collected some very pretty magazines in the two holders below. They have been taking up space in our bedroom, but today I had to ask myself honestly, “How many times have I looked back through them, looked up a recipe, or even just enjoyed seeing them sitting there?” The answer is “Zero.” These two holders and all their contents are now in the Goodwill pile with my fondest blessing (imagine a royal wave in white gloves).
I think I like to fancy myself as a person fancier than myself. I’m not going to say that I won’t be tempted by these publications ever again, but they do deal in a kind of fantasy world that is not where I usually live. I adore tea and everything that goes along with it.
But sometimes the most satisfying cup looks like this:
So true! I find myself in a schizo fantasy world: the Victoria magazine next to Wired and Silent Sports. But in real life, I’m clump to clump…
So glad to hear I’m not alone. Although, where would we be without our fantasies? Love the phrase “schizo fantasy world.” Could be the name of a new magazine?
