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?

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


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…

it’s saturday and I did yoga in the morning, had a sweet talk for lunch and a glass of wine for dessert, then felt the need to dance and so I did….

this beat is so groovy! happy weekend to all of you.

funky architecture


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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.
