At theLimbird household, it’s the storyof grasshopper and the pack rat.Those are the labels used by profession-al organizers to describe dysfunctionalfolks like Cindy and me. Both of us arechronic mess-makers, but with differentstyles.Cindy’s the pack rat, the one who hatesto throw stuff away. Hence the variouscollections of magazines and old mail,not to mention closets full of classroomsupplies from her decades of teaching.Fortunately, after a couple of years of retirement, Cindy has rummaged throughmost of the old piles and restored a cou-ple of rooms to their proper state.I’m the grasshopper, the one who neverbothers to clean up after the main part of a project is done. I “hop” to the next proj-ect, ignoring the debris left behind by thelast one. Papers keep piling up on mydesk instead of ever reaching their properdestination in the recycling bin or filecabinet. Of the two of us, I must confess tobeing the worse offender. Case in point:the spare room I use as a secondary officeand storage space. Whatever I didn’tknow what to do with, I piled it in thatroom, from back issues of the Scene toold computers. It got to the point that Icouldn’t walk through the room withoutclimbing over boxes and piles of oldnewspapers. It was reaching a classic“Hoarders” state.These past two months my goal was tofinally get my act together. In August Itackled my main office, and in theprocess filled about 1 ½ blue recyclingbins. That was just a warm-up to theSeptember project, the spare room.It took about two full days, fillinganother couple of blue recycling bins plusa trip to the landfill transfer station to getrid of some old computer stuff. Anotherfew boxes of books I didn’t need went toBooks Are Gems, a nonprofit used book-store.Now I can walk through the room with-out fear of stumbling and enjoy the sun-light that now fills the room unobstructedby boxes of useless items.The one lesson I learned is that thebiggest incentive to keep things from get-ting worse is to really clean up the mess.You never really notice the extra pile of stuff when a desktop is already coveredwith junk. But when you clear it off com-pletely, one misplaced sheet of paperstands out and it’s almost instinctive topick it up and put it in the right place.* * *As part of the celebration of El PasoScene’s 20th anniversary last year, theHal Marcus Gallery hosted the “20 CoverGirls” exhibit featuring women artistswhose work had graced the El PasoScene cover over the years. We selectedseveral winners, but had to wait until nowto feature the final cover award winner.Rosario Ponte’s “Upper ValleyNeighborhood” painting seemed perfectfor a November cover. It’s also a scenethat I experience nearly every day when Itake my dog Buddy out for a walk or runalong the ditch in my neighborhood.Another exhibit of potential El PasoScene covers will be on display thismonth at the Sunland Art Gallery inPlacita Santa Fe, 5034 Doniphan.
