Schrijvers halen rouw uit het verdomhoekje
Wat me opvalt is dat verlies, verdriet en rouw sinds mijn vertrek in 1994 een zoveel meer bespreekbaar onderwerp is geworden.  Nog steeds zijn het de ervaringsdeskundigen die hun verhaal delen, maar meer en meer zijn het beroeps schrijvers of mensen werkzaa...

Koffieleut - de lungo is een Americano
Onder het motto 'tijden van weleer', mijn eerste maanden in Seattle kon ik geen enkele 'barrista' zover krijgen een 'doorgelopen' espresso te trekken. Tot ik eentje die met een koffiekar voor Lower Queen Anne Hill's Tower Records & Books (nu een Chase bank)...

Treading on Thin Ice with Pumps - Free after Ralph Waldo Emerson
Symbols are all around us. We live among them, and we know when we are touching a sensitive spot. We know we're not supposed to burn flags, we know we can hurt people's feelings. At a time when nerves are exposed, do we really literally want to tread on sac...

Joost Prinsen vertolkt Ben Ali Libi - kippenvel
Vanmorgen heb ik Ben Ali Libi, een gedicht van wijlen Willem Wilmink  gelezen, en vervolgens beluisterd. De vertolking door Joost Prinsen doet me rillen. Dat Joost een rol heeft gespeeld in het maken van het gedicht wordt me duidelijk nadat ik Katy Huiman-V...

Grrrrrh. Turns out only the photos and films I shot at our shore side wilderness campsites with my iPhone and those I took with Jordan's regular digital camera came out. Of the ones I took with the waterproof camera only one made it to the screen. My excuse is that I got the darn thing the night before we left and didn't use my cheaters (for reading) the whole time we were on the river.

Adman, Artist, Writer John "Jack" Davis Made Words Count
My mom and I used to play a game "Ik zie, ik zie, wat jij niet ziet" or "I see what you don't see".  Note that the verb is "don't" not "can't". In other words, it's not about what you can't see, but what you miss seeing.  The clever ad for the (blue) Skoda ...

Gekozen familie - van een oorlogswees

The Wijit alone is already an improvement on the regular manual wheelchair, the additional aid created by Rice students rock 'n' rolls!

Story
Tagline
Writing Artist, Architectural Tourguide and Organic Gardener
Introduction
Writing Artist, Organic Cook and Gardener, Cultural Tour Guide, Colorist, Eco Green, sometimes Blue; Pragmatic to the Bone.Originally from the Netherlands I make my home in the Pacific Northwest with husband and pooch. My background lies in multicultural theater. Over time the balance tipped over to studio + literary arts. I'm working on a screenplay based on a novel about art, love and redemption in a cold country, and a memoir about growing up on a nut farm and coming out halfway sane.
Bragging rights
Core members of American/Dutch artist collective Taller Amsterdam called me "Mama Grande" (I wore many a hat). Stood at cradle of Multicultural Theater in the Netherlands with African-American Director Rufus Collins† and Surinamese Director Henk Tjon†. Worked for Netherlands/Turkish Theater Company with Vasif Öngören†. Wrote storybook for three of Luly Yang's Runway Fashion Shows, and was her speech writer. Have been presenting architectural tours of Rem Koolhaas - OMA /LMN's Seattle Central Public Library since the opening in May 2004.

Seeing "loved it" regarding a Holocaust Center seems strange, however if I change my appreciation from 5 to 4 stars, it'll say "Liked it" and that doesn't do this small but excellent educational center enough credit. So, Love it will have to do. We first visited the center to see the exhibition "ENEMY ALIENS": THE INTERNMENT OF JEWISH REFUGEES IN CANADA, 1940-1943. The curation of this exhibit was excellent, and coming from the Netherlands (and Texas) the exhibit taught us things we didn't know yet about that era.The present exhibit on NAZI PERSECUTION OF HOMOSEXUALS 1933-1945 may very well justify another trip across the border.

Eight years ago we arrived at the Jefferson County Animal Shelter and were greeted by about six large dogs, each in their own kennel. At the very end a little white and caramel pup barked as loud as the big guys "take me, take me." The handlers told us we could open the door to the kennel, and she jumped in my arms. Still reluctant to take on the responsibility I asked what they knew about her beside what was stated on her paperwork. They said she had to be a Basenji terrier mix, gave me a leash and suggested I'd take her for a walk on the grounds. Meanwhile my husband learned there was no —leaving to think it over. "There's two other parties interested, if they return before you, she'll be gone." So here are, Mocha nearly nine. To the nice guys over there, we thank you for telling us not to waste any time!

We used to live a few blocks away from this Trader Joe's. I walked over every day, as though living in Europe again, to pick up daily needs and some friendly banter with staff members. Trader Joe's is still one of our favorite merchants, love the goods, the prices and the attitude.

We're boring customers, we always eat the same things. Yet, this means we get the best service we can wish for at Azuma. The moment someone sees our faces, whether it's the owner/ sushi chef, his wife or the waiters, we've got our miso soup in front of us about the same time we sit down. Got to love that. Also love the food. It's family friendly, and for some reason (yes!) children who eat at Azumi are well behaved and enjoy their pickin's.
