History Monday: May 2021 Be Kinder to All
By Mike Watson
A New Year has arrived. It happens once a year, every year, and resolutions are made, then broken. Good things come to pass, and sad ones, too. A new beginning is a fine thing, we all need this from time to time, if just to clear the cob-webs from the mind. Personally, I do not make resolutions any more, at least not in the traditional way. Those made in past years for things that were not likely to be adhered to, almost as if designed to be broken, are things of the past for me. But periodically I do need to sweep away the cob-webs, and for me this is best accomplished in cleaning off my desk... not an easy thing to do.
At times my long-suffering wife, Renea, will pop her head in the office door and ask if there is any trash she can take away. My response, nearly always the same, amounts to 'No'. There may well be a full basket of paper, but I have a process. I must go through it piece by piece before it heads to the big trash can in the garage. Why? Well, I have these cleaning seizures from time to time, tossing out bits and shreds of paper with old notes and addresses, newspaper clippings and duplicated research. But I feel I must go through this pile before the long, last journey to the landfill or recycle center. And every time I do the re-sort, I find several items that should not have ended up there, rescued from the jaws of the garbage truck and returned to the pile(s) on my too-large desk. And I say that I will never do this again...but I do.
From the piles on my desk are articles to complete, research to tackle, and projects to polish, including:
Happy 2021 my friends, let it be a fine year, and don't let the avalanches of life wipe you out! óMike Watson, January 2021
