You did a brilliant job with this allegory. So many of us hoard feelings and memories piling them high in the gray matter of our brain. I could see a lot of resemblances between me and that old house. It is important to have a thorough spring cleaning and of course preparing for the winter months is a must. Your words really touched me and I saw in myself remnants of a past that I am trying desperately to hold onto but it is just weighing me down and cluttering my mind up with junk.
Clever and fun analogy - really liked it!
You have so lightly touched on the discovery of being closer to the crypt than to the cradle. Great images in your writing, stitched together with healthy threads of self-deprecation.
Nicely done! I enjoyed the entire piece. Thanks.

God bless~
