corner view ~ twilight

the french have a romantic name for the phenomenon taking place before sunrise or after sunset, when for just ten minutes the sky and its surroundings take on a hazy colour of blue, hence its name l'heure bleue. always happy to catch that fleeting moment-in-twilight.

corner view ~ overgrown

when left to its own devices long enough, the green of this world takes over. now, ain't that an harmonizing thought for the day?

ik ben geen hollander, maar

the netherlands. flatlands on a sea of plenty. windmills. patrice and i traveled back from hamburg together and she was so kind to put me up for two more nights, before i would travel home. every single time i come to holland, i feel i should be here more often.

ich bin kein hamburger, aber

one very good thing about blogging is encountering the writers. i never thought blogging would lead me to places, and this summer it truly did. fortunately distances between bloggers in europe are manageable, if traveling does require a little adjusting to. there's a chunk o' travel coming up, but for now we're staying put in hamburg. 

zu hause, mit barbara

it is very nice indeed when one is invited into one’s home. barbara put me up for a few nights in her hometown of henstedt-ulzburg, outside hamburg. i spent an inspiring sojourn in barbara’s studio/guestroom. sharing someone’s life for a while can be so uplifting.

ich bin kein berliner, aber... {cv ~ morning light}

the berlin morning light fell filtered through a row of trees standing opposite the small seventies hostel, just off ostbahnhof. it was to be day two of that early july swelter. jane's corner view, francesca's hosting, kelleyn's theme. {this german one's for you, kelleyn! ☺}

corner view ~ path

the long and winding path will move me upwards and who knows onwards into germany. i'm meeting up with blogfriends by the end of this week. later in july i will spill the beans. for now ich bin yet kein berliner, but berlin will be my first stop. 40°C...  here i come {umpfffffff}. have sweet holidays yourselves and enjoy the paths involved. ♥ jane's corner view, francesca's hosting, mezza's theme.

drawing | plates

i wrote in my diary : i cannot deny who i am, nor what i am, nor should i try being some'uk else. and i sighed. next i made us some dinner on plates. i'm telling you, deciding to do an open house does rattle my cage. i've been drawing tiny and bigger designs, trying to find what it is i'm gonna show, and i'm getting a little jittery. by little i mean alot

corner view ~ mono!{chrome}

in the eighties in music, we survived die neue deutsche welle, influenced by the earlier new wave. germany produced one great sounding band after the other. just to say monochromie does not have to equal monotonie. we LOVE monochrome, even if we have to fake it. jane's corner view, francesca's hosting, mezza's thema. 

all that jazz

cartoon classes wrap up. and we're stepping into year two. even if i find cartoons may not be my biggest love, i enjoy picking up tips and tricks. today i shook away all that 'school' hassle in the rains. the studio didn't work out either, so. when i returned from the rains, i felt replenished, to say the least. and my feet got soaking wet.
