It’s good to leave each day behind, like flowing water, free of sadness. Yesterday is gone ant its tale told. Today new seeds are growing.
[whoops, forgot to take a photo with my real camera this week, glad I still took this shot with my iPhone!]
Fulfilled my civil duty to vote today! Nothing too exciting, it was just for the local government. I picked the woman with the funniest name on the list of the Christian party, that should summarize how much I actually dug into the whole voting circus, haha.
That was the most exciting thing that happened today! Had a long school day, I was happy when I finally got to bike home - yes, I have a bike now, and it has been making me a lot happier, who would have thought! I really like biking home after school to clear my mind a bit, and I’ve been discovering new streets and places almost every day. Today was a bit of a pain though, it was awfully windy, hence the American flag wrapped around its pole…
Lately school has been a lot about traveling from home, and how you don’t need to physically travel to go places. I’ve coincidentally also been reading several articles on how it’s really all about how you look at the world that’s right at your doorstep. It’s very true I must say! I really enjoy my daily life and travels here in this city.
Alrighty, I’m off to the school studios again to photograph a bunch of Rotterdam postcards!
Multnomah Falls, Oregon, December 2013. Missing this place today.
Today’s 19th has been quite successful! Two friends from my hometown came over for a day of treasure hunting in goodwill stores here, with a short coffee break in between. The insane amount of ice skating medals my country has won in the Olympics so far [another two today!] inspired me to get two pairs of white ice skates - one for myself, and one small pair so I can hopefully force an eventual future child to get on the ice. The coffee we made with my thrifted electric percolator may or may not have caused a power outage [hellooo Nepal flashback], but our lattes turned out terrific. For dinner I made a bunch of quinoa stuffed peppers in your honor!
I love seeing the first signs of spring appear - I wake up with the sound of birds nowadays [thought it was my alarm at first], we have done a bit of spring cleaning in our little house and I saw the first crocuses today!
Hope you’ve been experiencing the same over there, Herrnhut could use some warmth I guess!
