Living With The Changes In 21st. Century America

My Xanadu

After working the weekend shift at the hospital I though I might just rest, but after a short trip to Safeway I took a look at my bedroom and knew it needed a cleaning.

What I would love to do is take a year to clean, organize, and decorate my home. This project would include the house, the garage, attic storage, and yard. What makes it a huge job is all this has to happen on a tight budget and will require a lot of creative growth.

The creative part of myself has been dormant for the past 20 years, but I remember finding personal fulfilment and joy from creating things in my 20’s.

Today I felt a very simple pleasure from just getting my bedroom cleaned. I’m a Virgo, an earth sign, which enjoys putting everything in its place. I want to make my home my “Xanadu”, my space that reflects personality.

The easiest way is to pick a picture from a magazine and then copy that style. But that would not be me. Each item, each color, and every part of a real home reflects the souls that live there. Living is as much a “work of art” as a painting. And my life is a gallery.
