Monday Musing

The fol­low­ing ran­dom­ness afflicts you cour­tesy of the fact that I actu­al­ly got through my mail and caught up on LJ before post­ing it:

Know the true val­ue of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idle­ness; no lazi­ness; no pro­cras­ti­na­tion; nev­er put off till tomor­row what you can do today.
–Lord Chesterfield

I haven’t read every­thing here, but it’s good stuff on child safety:

Sushi that I MIGHT be per­suad­ed to try

Soople—easy expert search was cre­at­ed to help the cre­ator’s moth­er do effec­tive search­es with­out wor­ry­ing about lots of options or dif­fer­ent sites.

How was Avo­gadro’s num­ber deter­mined? brought back more than I would have thought I remem­bered from two years of high school chemistry.

From today’s Orga­niz­er Lady message:

Engaged in a Rage­ful Dance

Messi­ness is not always an indi­vid­ual mat­ter. Some­times the house is just the floor on which we do a dance of dis­or­ga­ni­za­tion with oth­ers. It may be that some­one in the house (maybe you) is resist­ing keep­ing the house nicer because he or she wants to show anger. An exam­ple may be a child who is leav­ing stuff around the house and not clean­ing up the room as a state­ment of inde­pen­dence. Or a spouse who leaves things messy as a weapon in a fam­i­ly conflict.

A more sub­tle exam­ple is that deep in your own heart you may be resist­ing being made to do what you don’t want to do. Maybe you are angry about the nature of life that forces you to spend your time doing grunge jobs that you hate. Or maybe it is the voice of your mom, the neat­ness police, echo­ing from the past.

Our messy behav­ior may have deep roots for some peo­ple that need to be con­sid­ered because the rage­ful dance is very destructive.
