Dijanne's post appeals to me and contains the following quote:
"In clutter, you may not be able to find what you are looking for, but you may find something else instead. Clutter may not be about the way we hide things from ourselves but about the way we make ourselves look for things. It is, as it were, a self-imposed hide-and-seek." From Promises,Promises by Adam Phillips as quoted in Isabel Huggan's book "Belonging."
Another way of associating my cluttered lifestyle with serendipity.
