“There is no means of avoiding a final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.” Ludwig von Mises

I haven't been able to get Adele singing Rolling in the Deep at the Grammys on Sunday out of my head. I think the reason is that I keep hearing the message a different, and very powerful way. I hear 'You could have had it all.' and Jesus is the speaker. Maybe I should not ignore the message of that thought, so I'm not. Peace.

I accumulate clutter, particularly paper clutter; it seems to be the nature of information gathering. Whether I'm gone a few days and come home to a stack of paper and the decisions of which to keep, deal with, file away or discard, the process can feel overwhelming, to the point that I start little piles in several places. When I realize that my 'coping' is adding to the clutter, I gather all the piles and move them to the dining room to be 'dealt' with once and for all. It's the 'holding' table. Nothing is lost, it's just suspended in time, there, on the table, 'safe', but blatantly clutter:) Don't laugh, I see your desk:)
The amazing thing is that now the rest of the house feels calm, clutter is cleared away. Surfaces wait, revealed, ready to receive a dusting even, well maybe, they look pretty good actually, as they've been covered in CLUTTER:) Won't Bruce be surprised:)

Frankly, we appear to have gotten on to the 'Progressive' highway a while back, traveling in a direction we did not realize, headed for a destination we did not understand or fathom. What bathroom we stop at, compromising along the bi-partisanship way, does not negate the fact that WE are on the WRONG HiGHWAY!!!!!!
