on being messy

Yesterday I read this passage in one of Anne Lamott's books:

"Tidiness suggests that something is as good as it's going to get. What people somehow forgot to mention when we were children was that we need to make messes in order to find out who we are and why we are here."

This makes me feel much, much better about my life.


  1. :) You know, I've come to realize much of the same thing.

    Exceedingly clean things should be immediately suspect as the product of pre-programmed robots----not ordinary humans.
