i learned it from my mother

Nov 9, 2005 | Life in Progress

oh my goodness, the sun came out today, all day, and it was glorious. and cold. and colorful still with the changing leaves. i wish it would stay fall all year long. i went for a long walk at lunch and soaked up the sun, and the quiet neighborhood around the hospital, and just the quiet in my head. it was a walk with myself. i am a quiet person. i don’t like loud anything – tv, music, voices. well, sometimes music, like when i’m dancing or singing outloud. but generally, i don’t like miscellaneous background sounds, like commercials or chatter. i have too much clutter in my head, internal dialogue, that any sounds, unless i’m really tuned into them, just annoy me. i’m funny that way.

and while on the subject of funny, i’m going to say this just because my friend sara told me to: i like containers. it’s true. i like things to have a place, a home, like the mail, or stacks of magazines. there is a reason i’ve never been to that place called “Storables” because my brain would go nutty with excitement. i can’t help it. i like organization and this goes back to the clutter in my head thing. if my physical space is clear of clutter, then my brain is free to roam, with ideas, creative thoughts, daydreams. that’s just how i am. i learned it from my mother.

Sending much love,
