Feng Shui for Book Lovers: How to Pare Down a Library

Where's Dash? My kids seem to tolerate mess more than I do these days. Where’s Dash? My kids seem to tolerate mess more than I do these days.

Last month I decided once and for all that I was going to either get rid of some books or embrace what my life was becoming: a Grey Gardens kind of gorgeous.

As a writer, I had long taken solace in studies linking messiness to creativity. Oh the ways old magazines, paper clips, half-open books, unanswered mail and yesterday morning’s cereal bowl must be sparking fireworks in my brain! But with three other people in the house, and overflowing bookshelves set to topple, the center could no longer hold. All I yearned for was an empty room, maybe some curtains billowing from a sun-drenched window.

I just LOVE “friends” that enjoy taking advantage.of.my shit. Or.those.”friends” that you thought time or distance would never matter because of how close we were since 6………  I was told.by a former best friend that your.best friends are the people you talk to all the time…. then I spoke with a gentleman that thinks his roots, his oldest friends are his true friends. I have a gift.for.this old best friend qith the quote “good friends are like stars. You dont always see them but you always know that they are there.”  Oh well. When any of them fade away ill still be here for her. I just got lost for a little while.but ive been back for almost 4 years.
That’s not even the best part , a lawyer that is working with on an accident here a drunk driver hit me head in a head on collision. I got worried about something so I called my lawyer for advice and not only was he rude and unprofessional (obviously the worry was REALLY in my voice) and I asked if he had my best interest in mind. Well.I guess my gut was right cuz he hung up in my face and told me to find a new lawyer. Talk.about shock. I think im still in shock! I’ve known this man more than half my life and I just don’t even have the words for it (I do.but ill.keep them to myself haha),  it’s just downright wrong, rude, and just awful when you think this person always has your back but when they hang up in my mother’s face once, hang up in my face once and then decide that they’re going to drop you when it’s not even an accident that’s your fault and I have a.TBI.from.hitting my head so hard, you would think the lawyer would want that case…. Whatever………..’. so any good lawyers that we know of maybe Paul Scaf? I really need help and input this time guys, any information would be greatly appreciated. I haven’t slept all night cuz this is all I can think about I’m gonna try to sleep for a little while now. Thank God words can get me out of my head and thank God for real friends 🙂 -<3 gnite/morning
