worth reading • BBC News Magazine has a much readable article by Clive James about productive messiness. This is accompanied by images…frightening images like this one. Perhaps i am getting worse as i get older…i think a mess is not being able to see all corners of my desk, or ONE pile of unopened bills. Things like this weigh on me…but shelves full of neatly boxed, filed and squared off detritus doesn’t bother me at all. I don’t think i was like that as a youngster…i am certain i wasn’t, i don’t think i ever saw the floor of my bedroom…perhaps it’s all the senior moments, i am terrified of losing something important..or easier…that i KNOW i am inherently messy and make a deliberate attempt NOT to be. Whatever the reason…i am feeling a serious overwhelming urge to clean something right now.
