Stale

Things can die without one noticing. Little-used used inventory, food long past its pull date, slightly wilted and elderly vegetation all erode quality of life.

As I speed through the obligations of the week, the quarter, or the year, it's easy to overlook possessions that fill space, contribute nothing, and increase maintenance. Now and then a lull appears to give me a chance to edit.

The nose is a good critic. Be aware of subtle rancidity, the acrid smell of rotting paper, and the musty smell of mold gaining the upper hand. -30-
