On The Rockville 8 Blog: Confessions of a Clutter Junkie

clutter This week on the Rockville 8 blog, it’s my true confession: I am a clutter junkie! Here’s an excerpt:

Part One: The Junk Attacks

Last month, I moved out of a house that I’d been living in for over fifteen years. The change has been a welcome one: our old place was a one-bathroom, two-bedroom-plus-oversized-closet house which we outgrew years ago. In our new place, we not only have an abundance of bathrooms, but enough elbow room that I can turn in a complete circle without either bumping into a pile of stuff, or stepping on a cat.

That’s the good part.

The not-so-good part is this: I have. A lot. Of junk. A lot.

And that’s just the beginning of the awful truth! Yes, it’s all fun and games until somebody’s crushed by books. I hope you’ll stop by the R8 blog and read the rest of my saga.

With Deepest Gratitude on Veterans Day

Quote: Books are Minds, Alive on the Shelves

Just had to share this, because we all love books!

bookandereader“These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves. From each of them goes out its own voice… and just as the touch of a button on our set will fill the room with music, so by taking down one of these volumes and opening it, one can call into range the voice of a man far distant in time and space, and hear him speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart.”

- Gilbert Highet
