That is what house sitting is like. There I am in a space that has no emotional hold on me. In my case it was only a few miles down the road and yet I felt light years away. The first thing I noticed was the instant calmness of mind. At home everywhere I looked sparked some thought that started with an "ought to", as in " Oh, I ought to clean that, organize that, attend to that." I watched movies, read or visited with the upstairs neighbor, my friend Grace. I would get up and head home to work. Each time I returned to the studio I was aware of the jarring feeling of coming into such a chaotic mess. I referred to my workspace as "studio verite". Now I am thinking that a little faking the level of organization and cleanliness might be better for business not to mention my own peace of mind.
Two weeks of living like that have made me promise myself that August is the month to devote to making the change. I just have to change my motto from "If in doubt don't throw it out"
Gracie, I owe you big time!
