Friday is Lunar New Year, the beginning of the Year of the Horse. I’ve been down with a nasty cold but on Monday was feeling well enough to do a little house work. I’m compelled to because you’re suppose to fulfill your obligations, settle all debts, and tidy things up before one year ends and another starts. It’s a cleansing of sorts that allows you to refresh, renew, and reboot.
I decided to focus on my stand-up freezer, located in our garage. It’s always full, very full. But on Monday, I decided to rummage through it and purge. It wasn’t easy and a bit frightening to realize how much the contents of my freezer reflects who I am.
