Happy New Year 2009!

Even the organizer needs inspiration…

I dumped 1,000 emails
3 bags of paper
1 bag of misc. stuff

And tacked up this note.

Happy New Year!

  1. On this sunny first day of the new year that stack of 2008 magazines suddenly seems non-essential. Consider me duly inspired.

    Max in Murray Hill, NYC.

  2. Yes! My Zayda painted a whole series of Jazz Musicians – acrylic on ceiling tile. He was an architect in the 30s, 40s, 50s etc. before retiring to ‘art’ all day long. I’ll post more of his work one day. He passed away two years ago this month at the age of 98. Remarkable man.


  3. I love this!!!! So what we needed to hear right now. Just the idea of letting go, tossing the data trail of 2008 away, saying goodbye. Thank you, Maeve and Happy New Year!
