“I am never five minutes into stripping the clutter from my life before I start running into the clutter that is my life.”
— Robert Brault
Clutter says a lot about us.
Dirty dishes are evidence of hunger averted.
- A heap of magazines is evidence of literacy.
- An umbrella in a corner is evidence of shelter.
- A remote control on the carpet is evidence of technology.
- Piles of paper are evidence of gainful employment.
- Game pieces on the window sill are evidence of laughter and community.
- And mounds of shoes are evidence of children, whom you love.
We may not like clutter, but it reveals how much we really have.
Yesterday’s gift of time … Did the dishes. Evidence that we ate well.
