6, 5, 4 and paper

I spent yesterday sorting and packing my office.  I have to admit I had a pretty decent file system going – there were days when I felt I couldn’t find anything, but as I pulled files and placed in recycle, shread, keep or give away piles, I have to admit to being impressed with myself.  But, the fact of the matter is, I still filled four drawers with paper over the fourteen years!  That is a lot of paper!  But it’s dealt with.

I have a couple of more days of sorting books, and small keepsakes before I’m ready to haul it all home.  If I’ve done a decent job of it, I’ll haul home about 6 banker boxes.  I should probably aim for two; but there are a lot of books I want to revisit, or give away in a more thoughtful manner.

I was feeling really rushed until yesterday, but I was finally able to consider that ends always have little tails that have to gradually get rolled up and put away, and that I wasn’t going to have the parts of a fourteen year event all closed up by the end of this week.

So here’s to the task of cleaning out one part of my life’s adventures and moving onto the next (where I hope less paper and books will be accumulated)!
