Winning over Justice

One of my core values is, and has always been Just- or Fairness (‘Rechtvaardigheid’ is the much broader Dutch word that suits me better). It’s what drives a lot of my behavior and it’s what has the most profound influence on the way I’m getting through my days. Obviously, since that’s pretty much why it’sContinue reading “Winning over Justice”

Meditational Disaster

Please, on an average day – do NOT come and talk to me about the concept of ‘feeling’ energy. Or aura’s. Don’t preach to me about prayer, or mindfulness or *gasp* meditation. That whole floating bubble of illusion (or hallucinations), feelings and ‘getting in touch with your inner warrior’ is not my cuppa tea. AtContinue reading “Meditational Disaster”

Heart-body Connections?

Interesting factoids have always been one of my favorite things to ‘know‘. Trivia that might be slightly useless in daily goings-on but that are mightily interesting to drop in a casual conversation.

They used to be golden days. Then distance set in,‘Tween you, me and the world.While dark greys color the hours.And even thoughContinue reading “No more golden days”

Oh dear – It’s baby season

“Congratulations auntie!” read one of the text messages I got yesterday. And awkwardness ensued.I think my initial witty reply of of ‘Gee, thanks aunt, for congratulating me with the birth of a niece to a brother I haven’t seen or spoken to in well over ten years and who I will most probably never everContinue reading “Oh dear – It’s baby season”
