Nadine and i meet the day before
we start at Villa Augustus with coffee and cake
and meet nudes at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam
the next day we meet Ingrid
at the same place as six years ago
so many years and things in between
but it doesn't feel like it
two days full of words and stories,
laughter, food, and friendship
Nadine en ik ontmoeten elkaar de dag ervoor
we starten in Villa Augustus met koffie en taart
en ontmoeten naakten in de Kunsthal in Rotterdam
de volgende dag ontmoeten we Ingrid
op dezelfde plaats als zes jaar geleden
zoveel jaren en dingen er tussenin
maar het voelt niet zo
twee dagen vol woorden en verhalen,
gelach, eten en vriendschap
1.5 years later....
instagram came and made me stop blogging
but i miss blogging, the slowness and storytelling of it
and wonder, is there anybody out there who will read this?
should i start again?

of the tide coming in
and the moon
the proverbs and sayings with water
while the work piles up around me
like a tide coming in
thank you dear Ariane for this fine theme
please visit her blog for the link to the other participants
what i used:
printing ink mixed into a gray blue
stencil technique à la Werkman
papersize 50x70 cm
i found this image of a pinboard i made sometime ago
as an insparation for a series of linocuts
about gardening, memories and flowers
the images are now in a box
for when i have more time....
today for the first time i had the idea
i'm going to make it
i will get this work (for my work!) done
before the holiday begins
and that feels so nice!
after that there will be time ;^))
outside a blackbird sings
despite the tough rain showers
i look at that image
and think of these words:
'If I cannot do great things,
I can do small things
in a great way.'
Martin Luther King Jr.
