Saying Yes to Mess – New York Times
IT is a truism of American life that we’re too darn messy, or we think we are, and we feel really bad about it. Our desks and dining room tables are awash with paper; our closets are bursting with clothes and sports equipment and old files; our laundry areas boil; our basements and garages seethe. And so do our partners Ã¢â‚¬â€ or our parents, if we happen to be teenagers.
I just took a look at my desk/office/room this afternoon. I was quite shocked how messy it was, but then everywhere I work becomes like that in just a few days. And I have always been like this. My roommate from Uni. said that piles were kind of my thing! And boy! Did I have a lot of them? It seems even now that the creative pile is a constant companion of mine! One day, I will post a graphic for you to ‘enjoy’.
Having read this amusing article, I now feel a lot less guilty! I’m after all quite “CREATIVE”. Now I’ve just got to convince my other half! I will show her the article.
