did a roadtrip to the dead sea and met up with my parents. so happy that they are visiting me.

the desert always brings me such stillness and gratitude.

wish you all a lovely weekend!

terrible two

two years and a couple of days ago I was present at his birth. it was magical…

amazing how much water has passed under the bridge since then.

more of that dutch delight

_MG_4228_MG_4245_MG_4287_MG_4266

dutch delight, people and corners that conquer my heart.

had two very special in real life meetings with these beautiful and inspiring women while being in the netherlands: patrice and anne. (but not photos from the meetings…) so happy that my blog brought me to people I never would have met otherwise…

funky architecture

_MG_3918_MG_3920

there are some very impressive buildings in rotterdam. like the new central station. it looks to me like it is wrapped in electric tape. and standing next to it makes me feel small in a pleasant way.

eating fries

_MG_3950_MG_3945_MG_3954

when I lived in the netherlands I wasn’t really a fan of dutch fries. nowadays I love them, once in a while at least.

being here is a trip down memory lane and at a quick speed creating new ones.

happy point of returning

_MG_3887_MG_3910_MG_3890_MG_3906_MG_3894

to familiar places. but even familiar places are discovered in a new light when you leave and return, leave and return.

happy sunday!

bright morning

_MG_3820_MG_3828_MG_3835

thursday, friday and then the first chapter of france is finished. I will continue to the netherlands. what a challenging couple of weeks! it feels like my head is in need of some extra hard drive space… and my body would do with a massage!?

how are you out there?

a walk around the lake

_MG_3877_MG_3851_MG_3864_MG_3859_MG_3869_MG_3866_MG_3873_MG_3880

it took about three hours and felt like a movie, the walk around the local lake.

this morning I slept until 12.40! that’s quite something for someone who’s usually awake around sunrise. it made me feel weird. but also that passed and now it is evening again and a new week lays ahead of us.

good evening,happy weekend

_MG_3805_MG_3809

it has been a long, short week. so much rapid movement, brain on fire, complicated layers. after all these oats, i am looking forward to a saturday morning croissant.

wish you a beautiful weekend!

on a tuesday

_MG_3792_MG_3797_MG_3791_MG_3793

pastel colors and careful spring in the air. the almonds are blossoming, just like were I came from.

at night I sleep like a corpse with my fingers interlaced, resting on my chest, but I wake up often cause I dream and digest. my body is sore, so much quick movement, trying to compensate with magnesium and french cheese… perhaps the latter will do more wonders for my soul.

hey hello

_MG_3652_MG_3641_MG_3645

I have butterflies of adventure in my stomach, could almost not sleep and beat my alarm to it at 4 this morning.

now watching people and making up life stories at the airport.

~before I left, a visit at my friends pottery studio.

returning/leaving

_MG_3608_MG_3607

a week before I leave to france. two weeks since I returned from sweden. trying to collect, recharge, prepare myself, and at the same time the wish for just being, spending time with friends, feeling close before going far. no matter how much I need change, I am also constantly confronted with my difficulty to make transitions.
