Soul Searching

I have been doing a lot of purging lately and not a lot of blogging. I had a garage sale and parted somehow with most of the things I never use. My old palm pilot. My old lap top. My old bags, clothes, TVs, VCRS, old computer speakers. I  got new things and I didn't have any use for my old things. I made quite a bit of money over $150 in under two hours of selling. Then I packed everything up and moved on.

It makes me sad to think of all the things I had to get rid of. I rummaged through old clothes I wore in college. An old desk chair. Old Books. Candles. etc etc. I sold it all. I was almost saying good bye to my youth and hello to the next stage in my life.

This was a week before Katrina blew into town. I am purging my life consciously, These people are having their lives purged by disaster and mishap. It makes me think of how fortunate and lucky I am. It also reminds me of how much fate plays such a large part in our lives. We work hard, and play hard, and love. We are constantly, or at least I am, doing, and going, working and loving. We think we are in control and our lives are stable. We are walking through a life we feel we have a lot of control over. Then one day something tragic happens, a pet runs away, a loved one is lost, a job is lost, disaster strikes, someone you know is diagnosed with breast cancer, falls out of love with you. And there you are amidst chaos soul searching.
