I claim to write about serious and well-researched topics in this column. Today it may be different for once. Today is about an insignificance for the world, but a wonderful sense of achievement for me. True to my motto #enjoythelittlethings.The only thing I wanted to do was replace the light bulbs on top of my reference book shelf. So I got out the ladder, climbed up, got the new bulbs ready, stacked the books to clear the way to the lamp - and stop! A scene of horror! My otherwise highly esteemed cleaning lady must have avoided exactly this over the years, a careful look behind the books. I took a deep breath, went down the ladder again, armed with the hoover, went back up and vacuumed out the lamps first. An inch-thick layer of moth dust had accumulated in them. The beating of the wings of countless dead animals. That's how it all began.
