“Special” people

Een jaar geleden was ik bezig met een klein project, na een paar weken is het verwaterd en heb er sindsdien niet veel meer aan gedacht. Maar vandaag kwam ik de tumbler pagina die ik er destijds voor gemaakt heb weer tegen en heb nieuwe zin gevonden om het weer op te pakken. Ik doe geen beloftes maar hoop er iedere week er weer een te maken. Vandaag ter kennismaking de bewoners van Cherington Road die tot dusver op papier gezet zijn =).

Digging through my bookmarks I came across a tumbler page I once made, one of those things that started enthusiastic and faded away to the background after a few weeks (curse my lack of focus =P). Sometimes when a thing like that pops back up to the surface it can be a bit embarrassing, getting confronted with a product of a younger self can be a interesting mirror.
But when I was looking at this today I felt inspired to take it up again, there is something about it I still would like to work with. A silly thing to have a bit of fun with. I’m not making any promises but I’m going to try to make one every week or so, I’ll post them here and on the original tumbler page. Today no new ones yet but I’d like to introduce you to the people of Cherington Road so far.

Memories

The summer, that special time between June and September that we have all for ourselves to decide what to do with. I spend three weeks of my summer in lovely Norway, spend the time making new memories to cherish. Like the day we spend at Namskogan wildlife park, first time I met a bear in person! (and a troll to) and elk turned out to be even bigger from close by as I had expected!

With all the new and exciting developments it will be a longer while before I’ll be visiting this beautiful country again,  I’m glad I got to spent my summer there =)

perfect song for post summer reminiscing =)

Til Ungdommen – Nordahl Grieg

Kringsatt av fiender,gå              Ubygde kraftverker,
inn i din tid!                       ukente stjerner-
Under en blodig storm-               skap dem,med skånet livs
vi dig til strid!                    dristige hjerner!

Kanskje spør du i angst,             Edelt er mennesket,
udekket,åpen:                        jorden er rik!
hvad skal jeg kjempe med,            Finnes her nød og sult
hvad er mitt våpen?                  skyldes det svik.

Her er ditt vern mot vold,           Knus det!I livets navn
her er ditt sverd:                   skal urett falle.
troen på livet vårt,                 Solskinn og brød og ånd
menneskets verd.                     eies av alle.

For all vår fremtids skyld,          Da synker våpnene
søk det og dyrk det,                 maktesløs ned!
dø om du må-men:                     Skaper vi menneskeverd
øk det og styrk det!                 skaper vi fred.

Stilt går granatenes                 Den som med høire arm
glidende bånd.                       bærer en byrde,
Stans deres drift mot død,           dyr og umistelig,
stans dem med ånd!                   kan ikke myrde.

Krig er forakt for liv.              Dette er løftet vårt
Fred er å skape.                     fra bror til bror:
Kast dine krefter inn:               vi vil bli gode mot
døden skal tape!                     menneskenes jord.

Elsk-og berik med drøm-              Vi vil ta vare på
alt stort som var!                   skjønnheten varmen-
Gå mot det ukjente,                  som om vi bar et barn
fravrist det svar.                   varsomt på armen!

Selvfølgelig glemte jeg av dette forrige søndag, men nå kom jeg på det sånn litt i forbifarten. Utover uken tror jeg det skal bli litt flere innlegg, jobber fortsatt mer enn det jeg er vandt med, så alt blir litt utsatt.

Of course I managed to forget all about this last sunday, but this time I did remember! Next week more posts may pop up, even though I still work more than I’m used too, taha.

Great news!

Except from the fact that Bas is currently in Norway and he is staying until the 22nd of July, I actually got a spot at the Physiotherapy English Stream programme at Fontys in Eindhoven! Iiiik. Actually quitting early at work tomorrow, so going to celebrate then! I’m so happy about this!!

The birch begins to crack its outer sheath Of baby green and show the white beneath…

De afgelopen dagen ben ik veel met hout bezig geweest, vormen, opschuren, mooi lakken. Hout voelt altijd goed om mee te werken. Mijn lievelings boom is de berkenboom, ik weet niet waarom maar als ik er een zie staan moet ik altijd aan mijn opa denken. Ook zijn ze gewoon erg mooi met die zilverwitte basten. Hieronder een serie foto’s van bomen die ik door het jaar heen gemaakt heb, de zwartwit foto’s zijn analoog en thuis ontwikkelt vandaar de krasjes en stofjes enzo =)     

 

      

I’ve been working a lot with wood the past few days, Its a material I really like to work with. I like to have tree’s around, specially birch tree’s are a favourite of mine. So every ones in a while I photograph these great big plants.
