  • What health means (to me).

    What health means (to me).

    Peace, war, sickness and health, it’s all happening. More than 2000 km away there is ravage and death. Lost humans and homeless animals in stifling fear. It’s surreal to realise that battle field isn’t extremely far from our safe houses. In the meantime I have been to my motherland to be there for — and […]

  • It’s So Unfair.

    It’s So Unfair.

    Why is it that some of us have so much on their plates? Not in the sense of work or activities. No, I mean too much as in loss, pain and grief.

  • A Ship Without Direction

    A Ship Without Direction

    A relationship, a friendship, a job or project needs time before we learn its worth and the ability to build on. It needs patience. It’s like climbing a mountain where you experience uncomfortable moments. For writing goes the same.

  • When Things became Clear and I Could no longer Stay.

    When Things became Clear and I Could no longer Stay.

    Last month I made the difficult decision to quit my job. Things became suddenly so clear that I could no longer stay. To take the decision itself wasn’t that hard as my whole being felt this isn’t right anymore. I feel grateful to be supported in this change by my positive rock-solid man. Three years ago I […]

    Being in my Forties Makes me Realize a Few Things.

    “The most important thing is to hold on, hold out, for your creative life, for your solitude, for your time to be and do, for your very life; hold on, for the promise from the wild nature is this: after winter, spring always comes.”  ~  Clarissa Pinkola Estés Death comes quickly and unexpectedly, sometimes exasperating […]

  • How our human experiences connect us.

    How our human experiences connect us.

    Why sending hearts to a grieving, distant friend isn’t stupid. Last December a friend of ours lost his wife to cancer. She was only 48 years old. Some years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She recovered from this nasty disease, incredibly relieved and grateful she could finally close this black chapter in their […]

  • Beautiful Things

    Beautiful Things

    On this November morning I’m sipping my coffee and write a little piece about you, the ever changing sky and the sun slipping through. I’m thinking of glorious cities where pumping energy can’t find its way out and pushes on silent corners. Trapped in the veins of human desire, men and women are rushing their […]

  • A Minimalist Life – part I –

    A Minimalist Life – part I –

    My life is simple, I’m not afraid to confess that. In this life where things are complex -the world is far from simple- how can we lead a “simple life”? ALL YOU NEED IS LESS  It all began three years ago when my love and I moved to the Spanish island, Ibiza. We wanted to […]

  • Thunder


    Decided by a merciless twist of fate a tragedy that burdens my heart that you’re gone too soon it makes me realize we’re not invincible we are damn vulnerable we can lose the ones we love all of a sudden it scares the hell out of me. Heavily rain fell from the sky yesterday there […]
