Clutter ... Books ...

Say what you will ... I just love my 'clutter'.
My desk is loaded with keepsakes and toys.
I know I need to clear some space for my beading (next post).
But, really, I do my best creative ramblings surrounded by my stuff.

Do you have things like this? I know it will end up in death's junkyard.
My kids will scratch their heads wondering 'what the heck'
'why'd she save this'
'pins? thimbles? ... what a fossil'

How can I explain the smiles some of these trinkets bring to mind?

These are the two books I'm currently reading:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
(this book was banned in a nearby school district)
AND
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
I admit purchasing this book in an airport awhile back -- and didn't read during that flight. So, grabbed it, stuffed into the suitcase + did start reading it during a recent flight -- delayed by rain (no surprise). It is interesting.

Oh yes, I love clutter just like that. It makes me happy and I know it's all mine!

Some say a cluttered desk is a sign of genius...as defined from Webster's Dictionary "extraordinary intellectual power esp as manifested in creative activity"...I kid you not! Thanks for sharing...I also love the comfort of clutter.

The right kind of clutter helps me think and make connections between things. Too much order is another form of sterility.

The books you mention sound really interesting. They're both new to me.
