Spontaneous chaos and snowflakes.

Bumpy tires have prevented an extra shift at work for me this morning. Can’t get anywhere around here without a car.

I dream about a bicycle with a basket, holding only necessities (you know, a journal, books, snacks, a purple chrysanthemum,) on my way to work. Pedaling close by or down the road for coffee. But drive this car I must. Now with a shorter work commute I’m logging perhaps 30 miles a day… Short compared to last years standard 80. How do you shave mileage from your life? Car pool? Multiple errands in one trip? Or don’t you think about it?

So this morning of losing work because of vehicle maintenance reminds me to spend more time in organization, prevention of life maintenance mishaps and simplifying the clutter that accrues all too easily in the car, in the kitchen, on the bedroom floor (difficult with a husband, thinking of rigging the laundry hamper together with a basketball hoop ~ look, cleaning up can be a game!) “Spontaneous chaos,” is how my college chemistry professor used to put it. One moment your sock drawer is organized and the next, it’s in total upheaval. Of course the mess happened during incremental seconds of neglect, but it surely doesn’t seem that way. We think messes just happen, don’t we? “An individual snowflake never feels responsible for an avalanche.”

So this little snowflake has some cleaning to do today.
