Spring is here. It’s time to air out our lives. Our goal to make things feel new, fresh and clean. Open the windows, pull out the rugs, seed the lawn, and clean the sills. It’s all part of the process. Nothing says spring to me more accurately than seeing a clean load of laundry swaying perfectly on a line. With each clothespin, we snub winter and it’s dank chill while also telling the electric company to take a hike. One of the perks of an old home is that it looks perfectly reasonable to have your laundry hanging on a line. It actually looks appropriate. Pinning each piece of laundry brings you back to a more simple time when no press of a button was necessary to accomplish everyday task. Normally, I don’t balk at modern day conveniences; I think that Keurig and Netflix are the coolest inventions ever. But with all of the fancy gadgets these days, the laundry line allows us to revel in a simple pleasure. Watching kids run through blowing sheets on a line is one of life’s little pleasures. Seeing cotton pieces billowing in a rainbow of colors is somehow refreshing. Even as I grab for the t-shirt that stands a bit on it’s own, there is comfort in knowing that nature took its course here. While uninvited guest like spiders, bees and clothespins often come along for the ride, how could we blame them? I only wish, every solution in life was quite this simple.
