On reflection…

An odd question to ask perhaps. How do you view yourself? I’m always very puzzled by my own, even though I am fully aware my perception differs from how I am perceived by others. I was raised to not rely on anything but what goes on in my head. I’d be judged on my gender, … Continue reading

A play’s a play.

Tonight I got the chance to see the live broadcasting of Coriolanus presented by the National Theatre. Despite the proximity of London, it is a very costly trip to make just for a play, so only next time when I find myself in London town for other reasons will I go to the theatre and … Continue reading


Desiderata Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, … Continue reading

A small reminder

@postsecret will never fail to make me realise we all face struggles in life and that you're never alone in the struggle — Bethany Adams (@BethanyAdams) January 26, 2014



No, not the TV series, while it is a fun teen series, it isn’t what I’m referring to. No no, I’m talking about the feeling. That utterly uncomfortable feeling we all get, when things don’t exactly go as planned. That moment where we feel rather anxious and would avoid at all costs if we could. … Continue reading



Time for a confession: I am rather envious of strong willed individuals, who have known pretty early on what they want to be. And the sheer determination to do whatever it takes to achieve their dream. No, strike the latter, I am envious of people who know what their dream is. Yes, I admire those … Continue reading

Live a fearless life.

Live a fearless life.

Now where did that come from?! What an odious and obnoxious thing to say. Sounds like what some overzealous life coach – guru would say to you at an overpriced seminar, called “How do I live a fearless life?” or something equally as ridiculous sounding. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes we need someone to say … Continue reading


Just a little romanticism thrown in the mix. And sing along as much as you want. 😉


Lately I’ve been going on a Fleetwood Mac binge for no real reason. Man, how crazy it must have been during their heydays, 2 couples in one band with only one person who wasn’t (officially) romantically involved with any of them. Writing songs about each other’s betrayal, hurt and heartache coupled with jabs to one … Continue reading

Goodbye 2013, hello 2014.

Already a week in in the new year, my, how time flies! I don’t know about you, but 2013 was a not-so-great year for me, so I’m not sad to see it go. Not spectacularly bad, but neither one to write home about. Basically a rather dull year to speak of. Or as I would … Continue reading

Hey, I know that tune…

Feeling a bit nostalgic again, well, music wise that is. This is definitely one of those tunes that won’t ring a bell when you see the band or how the song’s called.
