You're welcome Mirel.  I have the utmost respect for Sting, his life, and his work.  I can't wait to see The Last Ship when I get a chance.

The whole discussion of how to approach de-cluttering from a psychological viewpoint is very eye-opening to me.

I love throwing stuff away. But I love collecting stuff too... I consider it my contributing to keeping things circulating;)
