Last Friday we past this large building at the entrance of
the graveyard we went, on the wall there was a plate with the text:
"De stof keert weder tot de Aarde zoals zij was
en de ziel keert weder tot God die haar gegeven heeft."
(The ash turns back to the Earth where she became
and the soul returns to God who has given her.)
Pred. XII. 7
Today I had to go back to paint this special place,
its an old Jewish cemetery, and the people who live
in the building invited me for a cup of coffee, and a tour
around the graveyard, such a lovely, soft feeling it gave.
Something like everything is just right.
