TOTSIENS MENEER

This is for Kelvin van de Hoven, my housepainter. At Kelvin’s funeral last week we found out that his dream was to join the navy and be a sailor – not be a housepainter. Finding this out made my throat go all lumpy.

Kelvin’s work is all around me, in every room. He painted beautifully. Even though he would much rather have been doing something else with his life.

R.I.P.
