today
I was musing
about my future
and I found myself
in this
large 
and light
studio
where I could be 
creative
and 
make beautiful things
LARGE THINGS
I could SEE them 

how about that ?

follow me
on my search
for my new life ......

twenty-three-thousand-one-hundred-seventy



*

*
today it's april 10
the year is 2014
I am living my life now for
23170 days

you might expect
it's all perfectly okay 
I am older and wiser
my children left the house
for a while now
I no longer have to work
got two new hips 
"body-lift"
and
yet
there is this missing point
the point of 
the meaning of all of it
and
above
all
for the future

in younger days
all was cristalclear

I wanted to be a teacher
I wished  children of my own
a family and a husband
all came true
and as a mother of four
there was so much to enjoy
the house was always alive
and I learned so much .
from 1992 I had to do it
all by myself 
my family and
 a fulltime job as a teacher
That was hard and special at the same time
surviving was the theme

I survived
and now I am on this 
whole new journey
finding my new way
in a life
I am living for allready
23170 days
so there is also a lot
of reorganising
a lot of ordening and 
A LOT OF SURPRISING
because
every new day 
brings me presents
from the past

I am not done with this
just started 
because my hands are free more and more
because I can stand on my own legs
more and more
so I am finding my new way
through my own house
and my own stuf
transforming
my past
into my future
This is my new job now
the most important job
and I am enjoying it .
I work for myself now!
I work at home now !

the support of you all
my blog-friends
has been and still is 
of the greatest importance
you all belong to my future
that's for sure

so if you miss me overhere
it's because I am traveling
not THE world
but MY world
I am getting there .....
watch me !

wish you all
JOY and HAPPYNESS

Quintessential



*



*
serendipity
finding something nice
while looking for something else.

This is happening all the time
since I can walk around 
and start to do things
create
My two new hips 
and I became as close
as possible.
I was in the hospital
for the check-up after 6 weeks
and 
my orthopeed 
NEVER WANTS TO SEE ME !
and 
I may drive again
and ride my bike 
and
live
happy
ever
after

the end / the beginning

*
Now my hands are more free too
and so I can start to
make stuf
to create things
the way I used to do
the way I love.
And the ideas are tinkling
and waiting
 I can move around my house
and find my OWN way again

collecting things
I keep finding all kind of things
and they bring so many 
beautiful memories along
They are like wonderful
S U R P R I S E S

showing me what was
and above all
to move on
in my new life
with my new hips

it's okay
more than okay

The darkness can never extinguish it



*

*
The LIGHT
shines
through the darkness
and
the darkness
can
NEVER
extinguish it

from Canada.
for some-one living in Holland
that's always a  BIG SURPRISE.
blogging has brought me 
amazing friendship 
all over the world !

I love all my blogging friends !

shining out like gold stitches



*

*
finding my way
through the days
with my new hips 

slowing down
every step needs attention
be in the moment

SPRING
is the right season
for new beginnings

I am enjoying
every new step

Just take the first step.....



*

*
I cannot even remember
when it was the last time
I was in the supermarket
but
The day before yesterday
I WAS there 
With my daugther
and I could see and choose 
for myself .

A MIRACLE TO ME .

And yesterday 
I walked outside 
with my fysio
To the end of the street 
and back 

That is my homework
for this week 
Walk outside EACH day .
I have asked some help
for the next days
to friends and neighbours
and every-one
who comes and visit me
TO WALK WITH ME 
that helps me 
because it has also been
so long since I walked outside.

Today I wondered
about my new future
and than I found the quote
from Martin Luther King :

You don't
have to
see the whole
staircase
just take
the first
step
