Cleaning Out and Giving Back

Lighten Up - (detail) 2009
INSTEAD of waiting until new year, I decided to start the season with cleaning out and donating items to people and various resources.  Admittedly, it all began with putting a new shelf in my workroom closet, which first meant taking things out of the closet to make room.  Amazing what I found.. non working cameras, long forgotten fabric, supplies, and more.   I try to keep things visible, but the habit of storing away seems to take over when busy with work.  Why keep what I do not need?  It feels wonderful to share it.  Giving and sharing are part of this season.  Generosity can foster such a positive force in all our why not do it more often?  And what lightness comes with less clutter in the space...inspiring creativity and joy!
Artist and teacher, Lyric Kinard, wrote a wonderful post about giving and service.  Visit Lyric's blog for more!  How are you giving this season?  Know others talking about this subject?  I would love to hear about them.
