About 13 months ago, I wrote a blog posting titled “I am not a Sagittarius”. It is a short commentary on “anicca”, the Buddhist concept of impermanence. A little over a year later, I do not think I have progressed very far from where I was and it pains me a little, only because I am a Virgo. We Virgos have some serious issues with letting things go, especially when we have set goals that have yet to be met. Ironically, the only way I can achieve the goal of impermanence is to not have the goal at all, which sends syntax errors cascading through my brain. This is why the earth keeps spinning, I suppose.
As a follow-up to that entry from last year, I want to let you know that the terra-cotta flower pot is still on my desk. The vase of post-it flags and the yellow treasure box are stored out-of-sight in my cabinet. I still have photographs all over my “pod” walls and I still receive commentary from people commenting on them. Some days I am tempted to take them down and store them away, so that I can enjoy the “quietness” of a sparse desk. When I start taking them down, however, I begin to feel anxious. So, I leave everything up. My “pod” is truly a carnival of visual delights. I don’t want to lose that personalization; at least not yet.
It is apparent that I am not ready to create sand art and then sweep it away. But as I am opening more boxes every day at home, I am discovering that I am probably more ready than not to begin reducing the clutter of stuff that permeates my life. Anyone care to help?
Also, I need to start drinking more water. Strike that "more". . . I need to start drinking water.

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: I am pondering your suggestion; but not sure how to go about it.
