love for life


(a few swedish moments, about a month ago. once again, pardon my dirty lens, pardon my absence.)

such strong feeling of gratitude, hopelessness, love, and despair these past days. the conflict with israel and palestine, it is beyond words, and still so many words are uttered. it makes me cry, it makes me angry, it makes me feel powerless.

life is so precious. freedom is so precious. we need to love and we need to be compassionate. as easy and as complicated as that.

I am seriously considering making it official, a blogbreak, but not yet. I do miss you all and I do come around, still…

a year ago today


the beginning of my french chapter. same same but different. I stayed in the same room, but my hair was still long and I had another dress for my costume, I felt lonely and happy at the same time and then I had no clue that I would be back so soon.

one (or two) a day for 7 days. will I keep it up? 

starting out with one for my father (and sweet ingetje!), since it is fathers day, he is more amazing than we could ever wish for.

generation smartphone


sometimes such an enjoyable toy and tool but I do find myself strangely absent and addicted using it.

what’s your take on the issue?

18 days/214 pictures


perhaps it is my longest blog-break ever. meanwhile I am falling for france, especially the nature, the cheese and the pastries.

are you still around?

david & the turtle


amazing how things are so real when you are close to them, and so distant and almost like an idea when you are far away.

only my third day in france and life is a new reality. with bits and pieces of other realities happening inside. always makes me question what is the essence and where do I truly belong.

a nap on the beach, morning sun and garbage guards


may is creeping closer. another flight, another chapter, once again, adding to the book of life.

ari on the balcony


after another desert-adventure I am soaking up all the lush, springy green.

I can’t seem to find motivation for blogging. this place is becoming slightly dusty and neglected… how about you?

Saturday, April 12, 2014



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!

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

more of that dutch delight


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…
