I cleaned my desk today
The simple housework of cleaning, sorting, and rearranging the files and papers has cleared a physical space for writing again.
For my children, I found the tickets to the Lawrence Hall of Science that a Friend gave me months ago - they expire at the end of June, so we're in luck!
For my husband, I found the handouts from the clerking workshop I went to last year.
For various aspects of my ministry, I was able to separate the projects/files that I'm done with from the ongoing/new commitments. I typed up and sent off the report on my final session as clerk of the Quarterly children's program committee. I made a new folder for the clearness committee I'm convening this month. And I moved all the old files off of my desk and into a file box on the shelves next to my desk, so I can actually get to the projects I'm supposed to be working on now.
One one level, it was all housekeeping. On another level, it feels like clearing the mental space for my new phase of life to emerge. Maybe I'll be up to regular blogging again.
