Clutter Kills . . .

I’ve started a series of articles you can read on Here’s a link to one about my lifelong battle with clutter. Each day I’ll be adding a clutter busting strategy for the next 10 days before moving on to a wide variety of topics that will deal with solo travel, creativity, creative writing, growing older, and interior design. A wide spectrum, but that’s why I’m calling them Notes from the Walking Head.


Creativity unexpressed . . .

The handle for my twitter account and several other uses employs this medieval line drawing of what I have named The Walking Head, aka The Ambulatory Neurotic.  She first appeared way back in the year 2000, before blog posts existed. I was in Los Angeles, training to become a certified Bikram Yoga teacher. It had been a dream to travel around the world at the millennium. I posted myself as the Walking Head in search of her Astral Spine. She journeyed through the nine weeks (500 hours) of teacher training and then on to Kyoto, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Thailand (airport only), Calcutta, Mumbai, Bangalore, New Delhi, Agra, and back to LA.

Today’s post introduces this walking head to you once more as she appeared (sadly truncated) in my first direct entry onto the blogger website. Here’s the link
