Don’t own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.
~ Wendell Berry, Farming: a hand book
Somewhere, sometime, I read something that suggested one’s outer environment is a reflection of one’s inner state of being. If there is any truth to that, my inner state of being must have been chaotic, cluttered, disorganized, and in need of a good dusting or scrubbing. My inner being was holding on to “fat clothes,” too. Expansion of the inner being is no problem, but my outer being needs to let go of such things. There is no going back.
