hello Rotterdam

The city wakes in the fog, people go to work, people spend their money, people drink their coffee, people who are looking for something. In the back, the new building 'De Rotterdam' looms on the horizon. It will be the largest building in the Netherlands. The architect Rem Koolhaas describes it as: A vertical city.

autumn berries

Our garden is not only covered in colourful leaves. These berries are everywhere and birds eat them all, a delicious winter meal.

a message from Lithuania

Sweet card from Juste, merci bien   While I read her card it reminded me of the sweet song by Youth Lagoon: 17: "Don't stop imagining, the day that you do is the day that you die"

a message from Minnesota

Receiving a postcard in the mail is wonderful and when you turn it around and discover this magnificent handwriting is even more special. I imagine Scott living on a wooden farm in the middle of American mountains, with a view from his kitchen on a valley covered with Indian Summer trees. The bees and chickens outside and a basket for eggs next to the door. Yes, that would be great.
