As I was walking home from work yesterday, the first thing that I noticed was that all the election signs were finally removed from the front yards. Not that I am against the process of advertizing or anything, but frankly the sight of all those signs on each and every yard became a real eye sore to say the least. It reminds me of the scenes that I occassionally see in yards where they are over run with garden art to the point of looking like a yard sale over art. I have always felt that things that are done more simply and in moderation get a larger impact than a mess of clutter.
From now on, I will be able to enjoy the things in people’s yards on my daily walks once again and appreciate the beauty in what they are trying to achieve in the gardening world. The elimination of these signs is a great way to begin before the next season arrives along with the beauty of the holidays. Of course with the holidays, we will get another mess of advertising in our newspapers, on the billboards, and on the local tv stations. In today’s world this is just another sign of the times.
Keep your season simple and try to eliminate any unecessary clutter in your life. You will find it to be less chaotic and a bit more enjoyable. Enjoy your day!
