Putting your house into order after going away for a week is work. There are dishes to clean and a bathtub to scrub. Film to get developed. Calls to make. And so much to recycle, discard or reconsider--clothes, habits, projects, relationships, etc. I don't know where to start; I rarely do and every year is another year for me to cultivate what I have always needed and never really have exercised except on rare, critical occasions: discipline. Focus. Begin with picking my diploma up from school. Then prepare an owl "exhibit", sew clouds, write letters, make a zine, paint more houses, and plan an autumnal wedding celebration.
