I have been making a mess lately. Ok, more than usual. I will say that I am in the middle of a serious repainting /remodel mood and have placed 4 pieces of furniture in the hall outside of my apt. I plan on ridding myself of more useless stuff in the days to come. My inspiration has been the notion that if I can create a zen-whitewall-haven for my work, complete with tidy books and supplies, the rest will be easy. According to most of my pals I've been saying this like a broken record for almost a year. Fancy that. Well, as of Oct 13 it will be one year since I let go of my tumor, and 6 months since I got rid of that 210 lb roadblock to happiness and success.
