It's everywhere, on the ceiling fans, window ledges, floors, books, furniture - everywehre I look there lies a layer of dust.
I recall in my early married life that dust was under control. How I dont' know, I mean I had my first child just after my first anniversary, and the second 3 years later. I had lots to do, lots to clean, lots of responsibility and the housework did get done.
Now I have grown kids, a job and supposedly free time of my own. So why can't I keep up with the dust? Is the world suffering from a dust invasion? Is dust in Florida worse than Pennsylvania dust? I can't put my finger on why I am now overwhelmed with dust.
Perhaps as I asg dust particles travel at an increased speed, and I can't catch them as easily?
Whatever the reason...I just want it resolved. I want the dust to go away so my house looks relatively clean at least one day a week. Is that too much to ask?
Where does dust come from and why does it love us soooo much?
Haven't you read the Bible, young grasshopper? Haven't you seen the science fiction Solent Green (whith Charleton Heston?) In the bible it says "ashes to ashes dust to dust". So dust is dead people.
And as the final frame of Solent Green says, and I so glibly paraphrase "Dust is People>!!"
