Out of clutter find simplicity

“Three Rules of Work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”

Albert Einstein


I can't believe it's Wednesday already, I finished up the kitchen yesterday and spent most of the day "deep cleaning" my office and filled two more boxes for Goodwill. This summer I have decluttered about 12 large boxes from the garage and the house. Why do we keep so much stuff? For some people its sentimental reasons, it is hard to get rid of items you've held on to for more than 30 years. I uncovered some old writing notebooks that gave me some writing prompts...
For today write a paragraph using only one syllable words, it's a lot harder than it sounds. You'll find your writing is much stronger...this was an interesting prompt.

Also I found some haiku's I wrote years ago. I can't remember where I found this prompt otherwise I would give credit. Write a haiku about a piece of furniture or room in your house.

my favorite chair
has lumps that I only love
leaving me my safe space

dining room chairs are
welcoming partners to guests
please feel welcome sit!


Now get back to work!

Lovingly the much less cluttered,
