This is a test

I’m testing to see whether I can post to LiveJournal from work through the filters and barriers. I bet that I can. It shouldn’t be too hard, frankly. Jabber itself works through the filter that we use, for example. And as secure as our network claims to be, the Internet is self-repairing. It defines blockages as damage, and routes around damage. So we’re about to see how our firewall leaks…. In other news, I’m thinking about organization again today, and how Mom and Leah helped me over the weekend and last Friday. Mostly it was them either pushing or patiently waiting for me to acknowledge that I needed to throw something away. It’s funny, but cleaning my own space always impels me toward helping others clean their spaces. I was just in our school business office, and the place is absolutely overflowing with paper. I wonder how much of it has to be kept. I’ve also been using the crossword maker at http://www.crosswordweaver.com to make crosswords for my classes. It’s been very useful.

  1. Living Space…

    I agree that my house feels better when I clean it. Cleaning out stuff is absolutely essential, and it frees up the chi, of course. My house has great feng shui right now, because the live things are alive, and the dead things are largely gone.

    Plus, throwing stuff out makes space for new and more alive issues.

  2. About cleaning . . my home always feels better when I’ve cleaned it. Especially when said cleaning means cleaning out stuff that is no longer of use. It frees up the chi. Only live things stay here. Live meaning “in use” or “in active reserve” and not expressly not “junk I haven’t got the heart to discard / pass on, even though I haven’t even thought about it in five years”.

    It’s good to clean house from time to time. Not just tidy the crap that’s there, but really clean.
