Trash and Treasure


Well, mostly trash.
It is a nice feeling when one has emptied the house of trash. I have pondered about this many times. Why do I find it so difficult to get rid off things that has no use, no monetary value and no purpose? I like the feeling of a clean slate, but I live on the other side of it most of my days, cluttering every single space in the cupboards, drawers, shelves and boxes. I don't know what I have in them anymore, since most of the stuff hasn't been used or needed in a long time, but knowing that it is there must fill some emptiness in me. Occasionally when I intend to clean a cupboard I start mercilessly throwing things out, but when I start seeing very old items that had at one time or another been placed there for a reason, I become forgiving again and I tucked those things back inside. This fruitless attempt at cleaning is seldom successful, or minimally accomplished.
Today, I cut the lawn while the boys cleaned the shed and took all of what is in that photo out to the nature strip. I still have to go through the stuff inside....a much more difficult task.

Dia muy ocupado, sacamos basura grande afuera y cortamos el pasto. Me pregunto porque juntamos tantas porquerias. Cual es el proposito, el merito o la necesidad de acumular cosas que solo ocupan lugar y acumulan mugre? Me encanta como me siento cuando hago limpieza profunda y vacio espacio fisico en la casa, sin embargo vivo generalmente del otro lado, acumulando cosas en los cajones que ya ni se que tienen y cuando trato de hacer limpieza profunda me cuesta mucho deshacerme de dichas pavadas que han sido guardadas hace tiempo atras con algun motivo ya perdido...
