(Spanish Moss- New Orleans)
JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. How are you today?
JOE: Less burdened by possessions.
CALLIOPE: How so?
JOE: I recycled bags and bags of old papers and am packing up boxes of old books.
CALLIOPE: Where did they all come from?
JOE: My years as a psychologist. I had file after file of information which might come in useful sometime but seldom did. I also have a collection of early psychology books documenting the past hundred years or so in my field.
CALLIOPE: Do you think you might use them sometime?
JOE: Hard to say but these days many old books are available online if I should need to consult them. So far they have mainly taken up space.
CALLIOPE: How do you feel with a leaner collection of possessions?
JOE: Leaner. It feels like I have been dragging things around for years which clutter my space. I'm glad to have more room. My mind has more space too.
CALLIOPE: What's on your agenda today?
JOE: More sorting and packing. I think I am ready to get back to work on publicity for The Pastor's Inferno and plan to work on my video "Are You Afraid of This Book" with the equipment I have available rather than waiting any longer to get my video camera back in operation.
CALLIOPE: You can always update it in the future if you aren't happy with it.
JOE: My thoughts exactly. Time for work. Talk with you tomorrow.
