Clean

Today I cleaned.

Went through papers, mound by mound, wrestled my apartment to the ground. Threw out all those boxes of stuff, couldn’t get rid of it fast enough. Stacks of newspapers starting to mold, some answering machines maybe ten years old, piles and piles of useless crap, then stopped a while and took a nap.

Woke up refreshed and kept on at it (after drowning in all this stuff I’d had it). Pulled the good stuff from the bad, went through everything I had. Several hours later on, with all the useless garbage gone, my place looked sparkling, wondrous — new! I swear my soul felt cleaner too.

I’m sure you know just what I mean. Sometimes it’s just good to clean.

    I don’t know why you did it today in particular, but that’s great! In Japan you are supposed to do the “big clean up” like this on December 30th, 1 day before the New Year’s Eve. I never have :)

    I do a moderate cleaning of my apartment about every month. I swear it helps me keep my thoughts in order. I feel like my living space is an extension of my mind.
