Croneicles Bats in Our Belfries

Bats in Belfries photoMy friend, Ann Winfred, wrote “Bats in Our Belfries”, an inspiration to get rid of clutter. So inspiring that I sit here surrounded with bags and boxes I removed from my family room closet to make room for paintings that are in the garage. Since I spent all day with the closet, I needed a computer break and will finish tomorrow. It’s a project that has called to me for months.

I highly recommend Ann’s Coming of Age Croneicles. Her stories and meanderings (as she calls them) are well-written, profound and often funny, plus she taps into universal feelings. For “Bats in Our Belfries”, she quotes Anais Nin: “If one changes internally, one should not continue to live with the same objects. They reflect one’s mind and psyche of yesterday. I throw away what has no dynamic, living use. I keep nothing to remind me of the passage of time, deterioration, loss, shriveling.”

It’s short and a real gem.

The photo above is from the meandering.

    A wonderful quote by Anais Nin: It very much describes the ultimate goal of of my work, which is when I am assisting clients (women and men) update the clothing in their closet.
