Januari 4 After
days of work I have a free day. Just trying out my new coffeemachine
after the old one broke. We are not (yet) friends the new coffeemachine
and me. It is so totally different and perhaps the wrong one I bought.
April 4 Finally
a new entry. I do a lot of work lately. Glad to say I work also (after
a few dutch written books) on an english version of Regina's
Dairy. But it grows so slowly. I work a lot and when I am free I have
much to do. It is an Regina thing. Working on many things at the same
time. I love it but feel the pressure also. And every time I
promise myself to play the harp again but 2022 is 4 months old and I
hardly touch the harp. I miss it and know I lost a lot of practice. For
everyone who want to know I have good advice but I dont listen to
myself when it comes to that. So quickly days turns into weeks and
months and often I am looking back and ask myself: Where did the time
April 10 Finally
I played my harp. Guess for the first time this year. It had been
months ago. Oh I forgot so much. Even the songs I could play I cant
right now. I forgot the notes, the melody. I hope to play and practice
often but with only 1 day off in a week I know days will pass and I
dont touch the harp.
August 27 Is
it that long I wrote? Really time works very fast. I lost cats, took
cats. Work a lot and again it is very dry. no or not much rain. I hope I post more this year!
Vacation time The
first day of my vacation was a strange day. Suddenly I didnt have any
frame to hang up my life. I was free, feeling free. Took me a few days
to adjust. I went to Leiden (close to Amerdam) but the railway people
where on strike so I had to travel to many miles.
on my birthday (august 31) I visit Terschelling, an island. But I feel
my body hurting because of the many miles walking and the wind is
always here in Terschelling and with a rented bike I feel my age. Well
it is my birthday isnt it 59 years old. in a few days the
planns are to visit trees by Deventer. When I working again I am
exausted. mm Will see. More about my adventures (soon ) on
Age 59 I reach now age 59! I
was looking at myself in the mirror of the hotel I was staying to
celebrate my life and I saw my grey hair, my old skin and tumor
-clearly seen but not dangerous in my thoriot and my old body, my
stomach with some extra weight. Yes 59 years old. And I feel my age
often. Guess still 8 years of work till I retire. Now I am not that
fast anymore. I forget a lot and had to think what I forgot. Brushes
and pains are shown more. Vacation. Wonderful. There was no frame
of time. Freedom. I felt it cleary when I was on the boat to set to an
island here in the Netherlands. Freedom. Water. From one coast to
another. I so love the sea. It was some years ago since I was there. Most of my life is done. Gone. I am in my autumn now. What do you do with the rest of your life?
October 8 Visiting
some old trees. It took the whole day to visit them. I am now working
on my (diutch) homepage. Fixing mistakes and add new one. It take time.
November 5 For
weeks now I was worried about my special friend who is imprisoned for
many many years in America. I heard nothing about him and fear the
worst. My search on the internet feed my fear. He seems to be ok but I
havent hear from him yet. I heard Mary was no longer alive months
later. I took the journey of being a SoulSister and
GuestbookButterflies a long time together with her. That is history now
and so is she. It hurts. Many friends from online groups are gone and
you dont know it. That is the price of growing older.
December 3 The last month of this year. And it is cold outside.
December 4 Sunday I
was free. It was a grey day and the whole day I did nothing. The whole
day I was reading and watch Wednesday ( a tvserie ) and sleeping on the
couch. With good music and the whole day went by and I loved to do
nothing. I needed it. I loved it. It was great.
December 31 The
end of 2022 is near. It was full of tree visits, two new cats and 2
dead ones. Full of music but my harp stays silent too often. I lost a good friend Mary from Golden City in America Some dreams came true. Hope I let more dreams in 2023 see the light. Happy New Year. May 2023 be yours with a little luck.
