Came over, decluttered more. It’s a lot better but a long way to go. At least we have 2 months until the next influx of stuff.

Harry the PDA guy had a post up about his inner reaction to a certain thing— the details aren’t important here— but it was one of these extreme, uncontrollable reflexive reactions to a perceived demand. He described it as a kind of psychological pain. And I tell you, he demand avoidance I have around my inlaws (or my mother for that matter; even more her) is absolutely a kind of psychological pain. It leaves me writhing and barely functional. Home again now, a little time in my space (even just doing things that aren’t art), the sense of relief is incredible. I need to find a way not to subject myself to this distress again if at all possible. A way that also doesn’t cause others distress, if at all possible. I dream of not having the in-laws in the casita this winter.

Anyway. Back to work.
