 Last night I finally did something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I cleared my hallway of some dozen huge canvasses (my paintings) and moved them to my locker in the basement.

The empty space is exhilarating.

Now there's a pile of books and magazines that will go to our library off the Laundry Room; a good scrubbing of the floor and the entry to My Mess (studio) will be clear... Yes, that is a mail slot -- our mail is delivered to our door in this building.




Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown
