June 1st. The sun, the sun, the sun

Here we are on the brink of summer. So much is changing, and for good reason. I'm ready to imagine
everything a little bit different. Have started two writing projects and a major get rid of the clutter project. Received advice from my friend Pat Mannix on how to begin to downsize, and so I have begun to do as she advised. Yesterday, I delivered two boxes full of books to Good Will. I'm sure they will be loved by someone new.
At the Good Will, they ask you to fill out a form on their computer for your receipt. The men who were working the back ( it was a parade of cars full of bagged stuff), looked at my white hair and me squinting at the computer screen, and thought I was a lost cause, and offered to help me. "No, no-- I got this. I'm just trying to see the screen . . ." Clickety-click, I'm now in the Good Will system.
Yesterday, I cleared out one flower garden. I do love the physical work, but my initial agility is comical. The way I walk, with tools in each hands resembles Frankenstein. It makes me laugh-- how ungainly I am at this point of the season. Thankfully, I improve as the work becomes daily activity.
Change is on the horizon . . . I'm excited for the possibilities.
