The Yellow Ant
Monday, January 18th, 2016


Did you know that there are 1,000,000 ants for every human in the world? Now, don’t you feel special? And yes, I have a yellow ant on my desk. And it’s a good thing I do, because without it sitting amid the clutter on my desk, I could have stared into space waiting for inspiration for this blog.

Take that, you folks who keep clutter-free desks! An empty desk is a sign of an empty mind!

How does one create without bits of color and wonder posted around their periphery? How does one keep from getting bored with their space? How can you not have three of those solar-powered statues that dance in the UV lamplight? Personally, I couldn’t stand to greet my morning without revving up the dancing hula girl.

Is she distracting? Maybe to someone else, because she is right there if I glance just barely to the side. But I don’t see her unless  I look right at her, and then I smile. And that’s why she’s there. Who can be depressed with a little hula girl in a grass skirt swishing her hips all day long?

Do I have a point to this blog? Not really. I just wondered how far from the ant I could get.

But I do have a question for you. Clean or cluttered desk? Which are you?
