|Rosa Mundi I think a 'sport'|
Do not own them was my first thought this morning, they drag heavily on your soul! I am packing books, and though they have been sorted once, they are going through another culling. Even if, at this late stage, the sale falls through, I shall be grateful that this job was done. Careful though because I can be too enthusiastic, there are four boxes for these bookshelves, the rest will go.. I came up with the bright plan, (LS doesn't seem to think it is,) that I could pack some of the china in my baskets of patchworks and wools, giving them a soft ride in the van.
LS has a massive job, all my efforts as to getting rid of some of his books to no avail, some will eventually go to the British Museum, so he says according to his will. Quite a lot of the studio stuff has been taken by others, especially the work bench and drying boards which were very long.
It makes you think, owning stuff, you eventually leave this earth, leaving your children to 'tidy' up after you, do they get a skip in or do they take your furniture in out of a somewhat nostalgic link with the past. Or do they sell it and make a profit;)
Well it is no use writing or procrastinating, downstairs, make up those wretched boxes into squares and then fill them!!
