Yesterday I held my breath (well, for about 30 seconds or so); the world could have ended after all (although I wasn’t convinced from the outset). Thankfully, the world decided not to, so my work in the house was not in vain. What exactly was there to do? My faithful sidekick, the red trolley case was completely emptied and cleaned lovingly, I cleared my desktop, and the house was cleaned thoroughly. Not to forget, of course, the trip to the mall (I had to fill the fridge for Christmas, after all). Anyway, I am glad the earth is still turning – there is still so much left to discover – and to interpret!
