Mums know best ...

Mum always told me to keep my room tidy
the dust, she said, would eat me alive



Thanks to Tess for the prompt.  More bunnies here:  http://magpietales.blogspot.com/

I suppose this could be a variation on that adage, 'Don't sh..t in your nest', or some such advice.

That's a wonderful image, and the idea of being swallowed up by dust is powerful.

Very effective response to this prompt, I have read several.
Hope all's well with you and we will soon hear more about life in exile.

The dust could eat us alive, but only if we let it. Love the nest. Love the silhouette of the tree.
