But what is it that has me feeling so free and easy this evening? More than cleanliness and orderliness, I got rid of stuff—books and papers. I had to take a deep breathe before dumping my 2008 calendar, but I did it.
As I sit here, my life feels immeasurably more simple than it did twelve hours ago. For someone with a lot of physical energy, I notice that I’m not jumping (moving) about as much as usual. I figure that if I can complete the shelf cleaning project, I can finish the book I’m reading. Tomorrow I’m simply going to clean another shelf and read another book. Simple as that.
