Thoughts on Messy Tuesday

I am conflicted about the idea of messy Tuesday.

On the one hand, mess can say things are going on here

Possibly quite interesting things.

On the other hand, mess can say they have better things to do then clear up.

The difficulty I see is that even the interesting things

have to be dealt with by someone eventually

no matter how unpleasant.

I've got my own stuff to do.

The End.

this is good, i like this very much, especially the idea that even interesting mess must one day be shovelled with no more reverence than the horse barn. kind of where i'm at right now, clearing out my aged parent's apartment.
the other idea, that it is as a bespattered artist friend of mine used to call it, is that it is "evidence of industry." very good.

Liked this one very much.
Tolerance levels are so interesting. In university my piling tendencies drove my husband nuts. He would clean up behind me, and then be annoyed that days later all the piles would be back (five courses meant five piles naturally, rather spread out in a small apartment). Now? He steps over them and leaves his own piles that I frequently clean up. I think I broke him ;)
