Finally I managed to clean my appartement – yippieyeah ! It will never be aseptic – basically it’s a book storage & books produce dust if nothing else – but the dust bunnies (in German Wollmäuse) had turned into dust whales and refused to move when I let some air in. Now I see the corners of my room again, a lot of paper is going to the bin. There is still a heap on the (clean) reading table, but it’s just a matter of taking in hand and deciding whether it stays or not, simply by answering the question : Will I read this ? Notes and copies of old articles – will I spend precious life time with this stuff ? The answer can be found in a second, so this heap will be treated in short time. A small change in the kitchen makes the cramped room look larger, additional bonus ! It’s still too cold to clean windows and take care of the balcony – it seems I’m in a premature spring cleaning frenzy !
I tried to find family documents in a box in my cellar compartment, but had to cancel the attempt : Too dark, too narrow & finally something fell on my head. I really wonder how I brought all the stuff into this place. The janitor will install a proper light and then I will dig me through things, surely some can go to the bin at once. I have no clue what I actually stored there – never looked at it in all the years, so it can’t be very important ; except for the papers. I always knew that they are there and that I’d have to read them one day, it just seems to be the right time to do this.
This Sunday Music is the first movement of Luigi BOCCHERINI’s (Ger., Eng., research) sixth symphony (don’t know the opus-number), performed by Europa Galante under Fabio BIONDI – hope you enjoy it !
The wind is back – oh Herr – but it blows away grey clouds, and no clouds means no snow, what is very good : Have a snow-free week !
