Friday:) From Dust You Came, And From Dust You Shall Return

25 Apr

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

~ Pablo Picasso


Yesterday, I was inspired by my sister’s comments about her house being so dusty. She said that she dusted just last week, and everything was dusty already. That got me to thinking. I can’t remember the last time I dusted?

Then, it occurred to me that I never really noticed the dust because I never was home long enough to ever notice the dust. That, and having old eyes added to my dust indifference. Unfortunately, being home 24/7, I started to notice all the dust. Oh no! 🤦‍♀️

When I woke up, I grabbed my phone to check the time. Gosh, it was only 11:50 am, so I rolled over for another hour or so. Why get up, nowhere to go, nothing to do. When I finally got up and grabbed my phone on the night stand, YUK! It was SO dusty. How come I never noticed before?

I removed all the photos, keys, crosses, memorabilia, books, etc., and found all this dust.

But, I had to laugh because ‘neath all the junk, there was a lucky penny and feather waiting for me to say…”Good job! It’s about time!”

So, as I dusted each item and organized the clutter, I decided to go around the entire bedroom and dust every disgustingly dusty surface. I was in a dusting whirling dervish mood. (I tend to get carried away.)

While I dusted all the wood surfaces, I decided all the bed linens needed to be washed, including the huge king size comforter. How I got it to fit in my washing machine, I don’t know. But, I did. I’ll admit, the washer started walking across the laundry room and go “cachunk…cachunk” quite a few times.

Well, I hope this self-quarantine thing is over soon because I have a lot more dusty rooms to deal with. But, on the other hand, if we all came from dust and shall return to dust…. why bother? I should work on my art. As Picasso said, …Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

Happy Friday, my friends. Cheers!
