Under the cupboards

When I was home last week I cleaned under the cubboards in my studio. I used to shiver at the thought of what was underneath them.
Knowing what is underneath them now is kind of a relief. When I walk up there now and start to go in those cupboards I still expect a mess and then I am presently surprised that when I look under them there is a sense of order.
I even stood all my old sketchbooks up so that I could slide one out and take a look. It is quite a resource of ideas, all those old sketches. I have twenty years worth of them. In them are lots of ideas I never did hook. There are also the sketches for rugs that are long since sold. It is noce to see the sketches, the rugs that csme from them come right bsck to me.
