clean house, clean mind?

Posted by Shortelise on January 18, 2005, at 1:43:42

This may sound absolutely nutty, but for the past few weeks, since Christmas in fact, I have started re-organising my house. Specifically the rooms that are my rooms.

It's as though by finding a place for everything, and putting everything in its place, I am trying to do in my physical space what I want to do in my mental one.

I have moved furniture, taken everything out of bureaus, closets, etc. Thrown things away, washed things, everything in fact, and cleaned, and dusted.

I am by nature a very messy person. Not dirty, just untidy. I am even keeping my kitchen very clean - it's really much tidier than usual.

It's not obsessive, it's just all I really feel like doing. That and cooking. I don't want to go out in the horrible grey rain, I don't want to play, I don't want to see friends much, I just want to stay at home and tend my ... "vie interieur". (interior life)

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any thoughts?
