A time to repurpose

"Accumulations #4'' (mostly shredded household mail), by Jaynie Crimmins, in the group show "Reclaim Reprocess.'' at Flinn Gallery, Greenwich, Conn., through Jan. 18. The show brings together five contemporary artists' works "using discarded byproducts to repurpose materials and bring light to today's consumer culture and environmental waste,'' says the gallery.

This morning was still, clear and mild for this time of year in southeastern New England.  Birds were singing as if  it's April. Perfect conditions for walking your dog along deserted streets and clarifying your thoughts about what to do in this new year. That might include throwing away stuff that has outlived its usefulness or, as above, "repurposing''  it, or, for that matter, repurposing your entire life.
