DAY 023 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – WOODY

Some years ago I’ve got Woody Woodpecker during my birthday. I built it on a tree in front of my house. As I planned to move I tried to take Woody with me. Impossible. Woody seems to love his tree as he does not move for one millimeter. To the new owners of my house I advise:

DAY 020 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – TWO OF A KIND

My summer flowers! I sowed  them in some pots in the back of my garden. I’ve got an automatic watersystem which means I have to empty the water-cask by day in order to avoid overflow. I don’t believe this to be a problem for the flowers as they grow meanwhile. So

ENJOY !

DAY 019 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – BACK IN TIME

Coming back in time has been essential to avoid rain and  thunderstorms. Camping for some days is a pleasure to do. Especially when the wheater is pretty. Nowadays the Netherlands are confronted with low pressure areas. So you have to be back home in time. My trip back home has been succesfull, however I could not avoid a litlle bit of rain.

ENJOY !

DAY 018 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – REPRODUCTION

Today I have spent the most of my time on printing. Reproductions of former work. It’s fun to do it. Looking with the eyes of today means to increase contrast sometimes. I have lots of printing papers so I had to download several ICC  profiles. I call it art, because I think it is true.

ENJOY !

 

DAY 011 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – FORMS

I like forms. Especially black and white forms. And if they come from nature I like them very much. I feel like Gaudi. He too liked forms from nature. He placed them in his famous Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. I have been there a long time ago and climbed all the stairs. You can watch his forms from above, over the city. Maybe you see my forms too.

ENJOY !

 

 

 

 

 

DAY 010 – 100 DAY JOURNAL(2) – ZEBRA

At night they are close together caring for warmth. By day they are flying around in my room. Of course my windows closed. In former   days I have had them in a special cave with a  room to sleep in. Nowadays I consider them as    my little friends flying around me during my work.

DAY 009 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – SOUP

During this Whit Sunday I had to make soup. So I linked myself to Jamy Oliver. The two of a kind tomatosoup is easy to create. Even in my own kitchen.

ENJOY

DAY 008 – 100 DAY JOURNAL(2) – POETRY

Somebody asked to create a poet for an organisation. I agreed without any hesitation. It had to be about nature. So the subject feels ‘close to home’, because that’s what I did before. ‘It has to be a new one’, she said. Well….. that’s more complex, because I cannot organise poetry on command.

As a matter of fact nature has to catch me. Today I saw a bush with red berries. And immediately I started my writing in Dutch (sorry)

ENJOY !

Vandaag zag ik in rood en groen

een wereld vol van zomer

een belofte, die leek als toen

toen jij keek, gelijk een dromer

het bracht de eerste zoen

 

 

 

DAY 006 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – BROWN EYES

I had to think about brown eyes, because I am in the kitchen. Today it’s backing day. Some people – like my cupcakes – have brown eyes. So far I never could discover brown eyed people are angry or happy. Today I understood it’s like my cupcakes. I have to look in a better way. Maybe they are too brown – then they are unhappy – just like me. Maybe they are just brown – then they are far from angry. So enjoy my cupcakes and be happy.

DAY 005 – 100 DAY JOURNAL (2) – SHINRIN-YOKU

According to the title of the book of Francesc Miralles and Héctor García, Shinrin-Yoku is the Japanese secret for better sleeping, lower stress and a healthy, more happy life. Today I planned a trip by bike in order to catch a glimpse of Shinrin-Yoku, somewhere in the polder I live. Because it’s raining I stay at home. Surprisingly I found Shinrin-Yoku in my garden at the back of my home. I did not know I was that rich. It proved to me you do not have to walk to Santiago de Compostela in order to find happiness. It’s in your back-garden!

ENJOY !
