A few more ideas to add to my personal life style.
Thanks for wrapping this up.
I accepted a challenge as Lead Software Architect in Malta.
I had already my share of learning software languages and natural languages and although most people speak English, I feel the need to learn Maltese.
Basically a mixture of Sicilian and Arab with pieces of English and French.
Besides the very interesting work ahead, something weird happened to me with (or should I say in?) Malta.
Ever felt at home in a foreign country as soon as you came out of the airport?
So guess what?
Really, do I need to give the answer?
The photo shows what is painted on the engine of the plane that took me to Malta for the second time.
Bright idea and a good way to stimulate interest in a foreign culture. H/T
Writing this in Malta, flying back to the Netherlands tomorrow, I can't wait to get rooted here.
My internal alter ego tells me:
Ronald, heads up, a bit more then a month to go before entering a new phase of your life.
I completely forgot: For each major change in my life a song is associated. I don't know how I choose them, but one always just feels right.
For my move to Malta it is Morning has broken by Cat Stevens 1971 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yn_To9dyxaQ).
A marvelous day to all of you.
Curiosity, Creativity, Initiative, Multi-Disciplinary Thinking and Empathy in our 21st-century world.
In my blog: Behind the 42 (http://goo.gl/INF0jR) you will see the same topics but a in completely different way for getting there.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
Yesterday I published the family tree of my mother.
But what's also interesting is the history behind it:
I month ago I got contacted by an unknown person who appeared to be an aunt. I even was unaware of her existence.
We met and she provided me some documents and photo's to digitize and I took up the research I left on a shelf for a few years.
Next I met her sister (also an aunt). More documents and photo's.
Some lazy chair Internet research and the result: seven generations identified.
And I wrote a booklet, for the moment in a restricted distribution (family only), but with the intention to make a public version. A story of some eighty pages of family history.
Translated into English the title would be "Father and son. The Indonesia-goers".
To be expected soon under a CC BY-SA license.
I managed to identify an until now unidentified Second World War victim: a brother of my grand-father. A few days ago I received confirmation that my identification was accepted.
Thanks for sharing.
