I spent yesterday sorting through
the stacks of papers – bills, mailers,
magazines, notes, bills accumulated
on the dining room table; some
required a decision of me; others
needed nothing more than to be
thrown away. I had to pay attention.

I understand more why archaeologists
have to dig through layers and layers
to find those who came before us.

Thank you Milton.

You've just given me a better point of view for attacking my desk.

I will play archaeologist, looking for myself.
