As some of you may know, I work in a anthroposophical (Waldorf) home for mentally disabled people and I work part-time in the “Cleaning” Studio. My job is to motivate some of the residents of the home to clean. But not just to clean, to enjoy what they are doing and to understand that there is a deeper meaning and sense to cleaning for themselves as well as for the other residents.
I was given Linda Thomas’s german version of this book (Putzen!?) to read when I started my job and although I can read german well, I can’t read it at the speed I can in english, and so I was thrilled when Linda sent me a copy of her book in english when it was published earlier this year.
