The Spinoza problem.
We have to renovate our house so I'm forced to empty it. As an artist I see possibilities to use almost everything I see. The aspect of saving things in case of possible war came from my grandparents and parents who suffered in world war 11. I've lots of soap and other useful things they saved. My late husband was the son of prime minister Cals who lived in the bigbig Cats huis with exclusive furniture (far to big to use in a simple house but we have it) heaps of books etc etc. Can you imagine how much stuff (and dust) I gathered? Time has come to be realistic, I never ever have time and power to work with my "treasures". Fortunately Yvonne is in my life for over 20 years. We were felt friends, we met at Inge Evers paper/felt working group, but now there is so much more between us. We share heavy, happy and sad things in life. Now she helps me with organising my stuff.
Yvonne is very down to earth, no nonsense and practical. All use full things go to op shops or people she knows and makes happy with them. She helps me unravelling my head too. We had lots and lots of conversations about philosophers and Spinoza is our favourite.Again and again it's clear for me that things happen in the natural way..... it's time to clear my house because we have to renovate..... because we have a hole in the roof..... because if it rains..... because........ because
why bother if things happen as they were mend to happen.
