Glacier cold August weather
Yesterday was Sunday, August 26.

 

Live in personal harmony every moment of every day.

 

Balance what you acquire, keep, reuse, reduce, recycle, trash, donate, collect, store, insure, shun, enjoy, dread, and so on.

Your time becomes more useful because you spend less of it reacting or recovering from being disorganized.

Time for a hurricane cut?

home chores
Filled five big trash cans with plant clippings yesterday.

 

A crew is arriving in an hour for the annual palm tree trimming.

Forty sabal palms – the Florida State tree – will get a hurricane cut.

In preparation, i trimmed our split-leafed philodendrons.

David, owner of PLM, is an exceptional small business owner. His focus is commercial landscape management, but he allows me to be a client because our yard is two-acres and landscaped like a business.

Be as prepared as you can be because it’s not a secret

funeral display of photos
Two nights ago.

 

Be as prepared as you can be because it’s not a secret.

What?

Your death.

Johnny and Margie planned and paid for their funerals in 1995, 22 years ago.

For 38 years i watched them gradually shed their belongings.

And this is remarkable because they never were overloaded with things.

Twelve days ago Chapin and i arrived in Allentown to attend Johnny’s Funeral.

He was 91.

His wife Margaret, my Mother-In-Law, went to join him six days later.

Margaret was buried yesterday on a frigid November 11th morning.

She was 94.

She was by Johnny’s side as he breathed his last.

Cheryl and i were by her side as she breathed hers.

We never returned home after “Dad’s” (Pop-Pop to Chapin) burial.

It didn’t make sense and Chapin’s School gave their blessing – even during the final two weeks of the semester.

Cheryl will stay a few more days to manage things.

We are blessed, and reminded, how a lifetime of being decently organized makes end-of-life details easier and lighter – why shouldn’t they be?

#Surrender

#Surrender

Surrender and the serenity prayer is the same thing.

Letting go of things i can’t control is the key to peace.

i completely control what (and why) i keep and what i repurpose, recycle, trash, or give away.
