Day 280 – Simplify

Art Apple - Day Two Hundred EightySimplify – to reduce to basic essentials.

There are many things in my life I’d like to simplify. My pantry, my hairstyle, and my art supplies could all use some cutting back, some re-thinking.

But what I’d really like to do is find a simple way to track my incoming mail be it of the paper or electronic variety – I feel inundated most days.

What are the basic essentials of communication? Do I really need to be informed that my cable bill just posted or that there is another new sale at Talbots? Isn’t so much of our “mail” sort of like the old question – “if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one to hear it – does it make a sound?” I’m wondering if I don’t know about the 30% deal or newest recipe for from Dr. Weil – do they really exist?

I might possibly find a way to live without knowing when the next Pottery Barn sale begins. Simplify… my new mantra!

Until tomorrow.
