Top Comments: Keep or Cull Edition

I wrote earlier this year on my commitment to decluttering the house. As with many things, Life gets in the way and sometimes days go by before I go "Oh crap, I need to get back to it!" And I do... more is leaving the house than going in, and new patterns of keeping clutter at bay ARE settling in. But tonight's topic is another type of decluttering... that of the people kind. Follow me below the orange pile of IRS tax documents you used to file your taxes (you haven't filed yet?! What are you doing reading this?!) after a word from our sponsor...

One of my favorite Peanuts characters was Linus van Pelt. Sincere, true to himself, and both never without and never ashamed of his security blanket. He's also lent his name to a cause I got to support this morning. Follow me below the orange fleece blanket after a word from our sponsor...

Scrolling through Facebook over coffee this morning, I came across a story from Huffington Post. Eight hours later that story was still with me, and the Muse insisted we talk about it tonite. She's insistent when she wants to be, so check your check your stereotypes at the door and follow me below the orange cloud of internalized bias after a word from our sponsor...

As I thought about tonight's topic, I knew I'm in a musical phase. A quick check of diaries past quickly nixed the "Irish/Celtic-themed music" as soooo last year. However, as far as I can tell I haven't yet inflicted Green Songs on Top Comments, so grab your emerald-tinted beer and follow me below the field of green orange clovers after a word from our sponsor...

The Muse has been a truly cranky sort ever since Saturday night. She's really not a fan of the whole Spring Ahead, Fall Behind Daylight Savings Time thing. So as I watched the clocks turn from 1:59am to 3am, then decided to stay up til 5:30 because screw it I'm enjoying conversations with friends and it's not like any sleep I get is going to make a difference at 7:30am, she fixated on Time as my topic for tonite. I learned long ago not to challenge the Muse on topics, so fire up the music engines and follow me below the swirling orange sands of time after a word from our sponsor...

Since New Year's Day I've been practicing a daily routine of spending at least 15' per day  decluttering. It's based on a set of suggested daily activities from here. Each week is devoted to a particular topic, and the days are broken up so all you need to do to accomplish something is check the calendar. As one would expect from a freethinking progressive Unitarian Universalist Democrat I substitute my own missions when the daily one doesn't meet my needs.

I'm really happy and making lots of progress.  But a few days ago a found another site, and I'm questioning my methodology and goals. Please grab a meditation cushion and follow me below the dingledoodle squigglie dKosagnocchi dividerthingie fold after a word from our sponsor...

I was late to BeninSC's beautiful Top Comments diary last night because of a meeting at church.
