it’s not a mess.
it’s a physical manifestation of a wonderfully complex ability to
assess & compartmentalize information.
I was visiting a store owner in St. Paul, Minnesota some years ago. She apologized as she walked me into her office by saying, “I’m sorry. My office is just such a mess.” My precise reply is shown above. She dropped everything in her hand on the top of the closest pile and said, “I have to write that down. I want you to turn that into a poster.” And I did. I understand this piece is featured in art studios, craft rooms, sewing rooms and offices far and wide!
Mess or a sign of brilliant opportunity? It really is a matter of perspective.
