Today’s prompt for 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes is WARDROBE
When I open my closet, the first thing that catches my eye is any of a number of jackets, both short and long sleeved.While I was teaching, I wore a jacket almost every day. Now they sit neglected, hardly seeing any service.
Most of these I bought at Value Village or Goodwill. I knew I would come home with paint or glue most days and I didn’t want to spend a fortune on dry cleaning or worrying about little hands. The pockets also were handy for pens and paper and odds and ends.
They certainly served a purpose -maybe it’s time to recycle them.Time for a new look, new clothes maybe? A new image?
Time for less utility – and more joy! – in all things.
