I'm making it a habit to find sustenance, even if only in 15 minute bursts. Not food, although I was inconsolably disappointed to be hot-dog-less on National Hot Dog Day. Parks, music, coffee breaks with friends. Spontaneous art projects meaning ridiculously simple stuff like restringing a neckla...

I first read about 365 Meaningful Conversations on page 5 of the May 7, 2018 Woodinville Weekly (Making a Difference One Conversation at a Time). I was intrigued. Audrey Phillips sells packs of 365 notecards, each enlivened with an inspirational quote, a question about the quote and one of Ms. Ph...

Once upon a time, new Organizer slaying dragons, I read the 2002 edition of “ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life” by Judith Kolberg & Kathleen Nadeau.

Tiffany Swedeen, Founder of Recover and Rise, is one of my clients. She and I have collaborated on several rooms in her house. I'm proud to be walking with her and supporting her on her journey, helping her bring her "outside" environment into alignment with her internal spiritual self. I'm repri...

No, I don’t mean robots, although yes, I want a Rosie – and my gratitude for Matt Novak’s delightful November 13, 2012 article Recapping ‘The Jetsons’: Episode 08 – Rosey’s Boyfriend for Smithsonian magazine, do follow the link. “Assistive technology” is anything which, while it hasn’t been expli...

I think I'll always consider this one of the most difficult posts I ever write. I have no idea when I first heard about the cinéma verité Grey Gardens. But it is (perhaps) obligatory, even de rigueur, maybe a rite of passage, for Professional Organizers to watch this 1975 documentary about Edith ...
