the morbid collection. i already have a bunch of other dead animals; (1 2 3) I guess they serve as a reminder of how fragile life is. and how natural death is, after all.

‘sure and life is a lot o’ misery, all right, and death is more misery, yet. Dread, fear, anxiety, guilt, even a bit o’ neurosis , are perfectly natural responses to a life that promises such an unacceptable end. The trick is not to take such responses too seriously, not to trivialize your all too short stay in your carton o’ flesh by cooperatin’ with misery.’

did you guys read anything by tom robbins? thank you dear demie for the book!

goofing around


…while boiling potatoes. it’s a day for soup.

the frame does not fit me, or I can not seem to fit inside the frame. trying very hard to feel what framework would do me good. perhaps the trying hard is already bringing me off track.

petra, jordan, continuation


there was the bedouin woman drinking tea, the neatly dressed business man having a smoke, dozens of young boys riding donkeys or camels, offering you a ride to the top and spots of left over snow (!) on the way to petra, can you imagine?

and, something else, a call out to all the belgian bloggers, are there any of you readers out there from brussles or the surrounding?

a few moments from jordan. so close, and so different. yet similar…

seems my blog is getting dusty. like I dropped it in the corner of the room and keep forgetting to pick it up. hello to you. my body is running ahead of my mind. trying to catch up. trying to slow down. what about you?

someone I spend a lot of time with


…is this little wild creature. he has the softest cheeks, begging to be kissed.

when you read this I should be on a roadtrip in jordan, hopefully bringing some inspiring moments to share with me.

love, embrace!

me like


I found this online somewhere, it has been circulating ‘out there’ and I took it straight to my heart. also, I love calvin and hobbes, are you guys familiar with them?

more than anything it seems like a great reminder at the right moment. having an ongoing struggle with myself these days. finding that I am unmotivated and tired, slightly on the edge and getting stuck in negative patterns. remembering that it is up to me to change it and to choose differently. phu.

those were the days


we had a short and passionate romance with winter. building igloos and throwing snowballs. dear winter, could you stay a wee bit longer?

one goat after the other is giving birth these days. my friends kept a newborn kid in their living room for 24hours due to the cold. it was quite cozy, sharing the space with a cuddly, furry creature named after joni mitchell.

wishing you a sweet and tranquil saturday!

and then came the snow


after a couple of days of intense storms, heavy rains and flooding came the snow. it brings out so much playfulness and excitement. and I feel at home…

wet as in winter


rain, rain, and more rain. it soothes me. the sun can’t always shine.

drawing mind-maps and figuring out my priorities. have a swell eve!
