🌺❤️ dance ❤️🌺


I am not a dancing
on the outside 
on the inside 
I think I dance
there is JOY 
and there is my 
granddaugther .
She loves to dance 
all the time .
Together we worked in 
the garden and 
there is a lot going on there.
There is GREEN and movement
from all kinds of little insects 
and Eva talkshow to them !
She finds out if ants can swim
and HOW they swim
She catches lots of SNAILS 
and gives them names ....
we now have our own strawberries

She knows the names of 
the plants too and she loves 
the way they sound .......
Oost-Indische-kers ......
and that strawberries wear CROWNS 👑

So we have our own way 
of dancing through life 
Me and my granddaugther
I teach her 
and she teaches me

give up on
that you can't go
a day 
without thinking
about it .

I have been thinking 
 about blogging
a lot 
and I came
to the conclusion
that blogging is unique.

I have let myself 
get carried away
in using facebook
and instagram
and a lot of blogfriends
are there too
for me 
blogging is like 
the small shops
where the owner has 
time and attention.
facebook and instagram
are more like THE MALL
It's more about looking 
and being seen ......

I am a huge fan
of old streets with little shops
( like the shop-around-the-corner
in the movie YOU'VE GOT MAIL )
and I choose to be true 
to that again .

Since I got a second chance
with my TWO new hips
my life turned around
because it 
coïncideer with
retiring from my job
as a kindergarten-teacher
and also 
my four children 
leaving the house 
to live their own lives .

A lot of changing 
and the new hips 
turned out to be 
the biggest gift of all.
It's the being-able-to-stand-on-my-own
TWO FEET again
To be independent .

A new start 
learning to live my life 
at home 
On my own 

My granddaugther got
4 in may 
and she now goes to 
The school where I worked
for so long .
To see how she has grown
and also took a new step
in life is so wonderful to experience.

We all have a place in life
and we all are sometimes 
wandering .....
The friendships I found
are very valuable to me .

My laptop going down
should not have been 
an excuse 
for not blogging .
blogging on my IPad 
takes ME a lot of time
and patience ..............
so is shopping in the small shops 
in the old streets 
and it's all about
choices .
I have time 
lots of time 
to do things my own way now .

How lucky I am
