Blue tape starts small, then gets bigger and bigger as Ciwt gets bolder and more ruthless. For the past few days Ciwt has been deep into her closets, bookshelves, under her bed and noticing again all the things that have been hiding in plain sight over the years.  All the while carrying her roll of blue tape, ripping it and sticking it onto all the objects that will be taken away by a couple of organizer/drill sergeants on Wednesday. 

Lots of her friends have done these deep clean outs over the years in the process of moving to new homes, but this is Ciwt's first experience with an 'almost moving' purge.  She's been pre-selecting with her blue tape in order to practice imagining her place wihout these objects/friends/identity/whatever they may mean to her.  How will it feel when there is empty space where they have been sitting all these years?  Free, open, airy, spacious she hopes, but it is still a bit unnerving.
