Sorting through old things. Habits, traditions, books, Easter and Christmas decor, t-shirts and jeans, those "do it this way because we always do" things, etc. Nothing is exempt from inspection; nothing gets a pass.

So I ask repeatedly, day after day: Why do we have this? What is the purpose, the need, the reason? Is the need truly significant, the purpose unique enough to require this habit or thing alone?

A bit tiring and tedious. Brain-frying and overwhelming. But freeing. Letting go of stuff, patterns, "always do-s", and even ways of thinking.

Maybe spring is coming after all. :)
