* * * Blessings * * *


is love
The heart 
is also love
and so are you 

My world is filled with graceful love

my path is broad and gentle.
Ours is a journey of shared hearts.
I remind myself that I am
 blessed with friendship ,
gifted with acquaintances 
and associations
who travel with me .
Reminding myself 
that we are all traveling together.
I develop my individuality 
while welcoming the individuality of others.
As much as I yearn to be
truly seen and truly loved ,
I seek to see others truly 
and truly love them.
I offer to those I encounter 
a believing mirror.
I reflect back to them their dignity
their beauty
their potential and divine spark .
Treating all whom I encounter 
with respect and affection,
I allow my heart to be a vessel
for healing love.
Drawing on universal love 
to love through me,
I love freely and without fatigue.
I open my heart to actualizing grace
in each encounter.
I allow Spirit to encounter 
my interactions,
shaping them and leavening them 
to a richer bread.
I am nourished by Spirit 
and through Spirit .
I seek to bless and nourish others by 
expressing Spirit through me .

Julia Cameron .

I have this book 
written by Julia Cameron 
It is a beautiful book 
four in one volume

I fel in love with the book 
because of the LOOK 
It's a 635 pages book
and the paper looks kind of old ......
very beautiful
So ..... I picked it up and 
was surprised 
by what I saw inside ....

I never heard of 
Julia Cameron 
but I bought the book
July 2010
and I am so glad I did .

I refound it 
in my bookcase 
and was taken by the words
all over .
I read and than 
I muse ..... all day
several days 

I love to be inspired 
by beautiful words
from others 

the autumn-sun
is shining warm and beautiful 
and I am counting down
november 5 
my new hip !

happy autumn-days
to all of you

I know
 I have not been
 much .
I need time
is a magical gift 
and as long as we have TIME
all is possible .

to me time is  healing 
it's like water streaming
amongst stones
 making all 
soft and shining 
and beautiful 

I feel an inner peace
I never had
I can see how
my life
has brought me here
and how I was able
to do and learn 

I now understand
how all had a meaning
and I can feel so blessed
and all of a sudden
my old pains
vanish in sparkles 
leaving a soft feeling
of autumnish colors ...

My (autumn) birthday
is coming soon
november 2
How I love novembers
and this time
november 5
I will never forget
A new gift
a new hip
a new future

where it started love for MUIZEN ( mice )

Typical Dutch Tradition
 Beschuit met muisjes
, (sugar coated aniseed )
 to celebrate the birth of a baby
. Pink muisjes for a baby girl, blue for a boy

Muisje = mouse

When I had my first child
I became to be a mother 
and my life changed 

Before that 
I had been working as a 
in a Waldorf School .

I choose to be a 
stay-at-home mother .
and one day 
walking with my first-born
in the park
I met another mother 
also walking with her first-born
in that park
and we started talking
we became friends ...

we had lots of coffee-and-play-dates
and than we were BOTH pregnant
from our second child 
at the same time 
We both had boys
and than we got girls 
and still when the years went by 
we stayed friends
and were creative stay-at-home-moms
and learned a lot
from each other .

Than I moved to another town
and a bigger house !
and we started sending MAIL 


and we made 
and send
eachother mice-presents 

We had a third child 
not at the same time 
and I had a fourth .....

we still had coffee once and a while
and than I devorced
and a few years later she too...

the mail and the presents
were a joy in our friendship .

and still are 

and than
I got my first MAILEG mouse
in a box
from a very wonderful SHOP
by a bloggerfriend
and a new hobby started .....

she arrived too

and the one on the right !

and my first grandchild
was born 
and you know what

she loves the mice too 
and she is two years old now
and we play a lot
with my little friends

like this !



now you know
about me and mice 

have a wonderful OCTOBER

hanging on .............

you go through
you've got
to see
the valleys
as well as
the peak

Neil Young

I was a big fan
of Neil Young's
when I was young
( hihi I was YOUNG )

On Pinterest there was
an image 
of one of Neil's albums
record albums
and I went to look 
for his music
on You Tube
and Oh  Oh OH 
I still love that music
and after all this time 
I could sing all the songs
still knew all the lyrics.
than I saw
interviews with him
started to read about his life

He is a very inspiring man 
and still is a great musician 

from the past .

Is there music 
you love to hear
