A few more ideas to add to my personal life style.
Thanks for wrapping this up.

And yet another language to learn.

Why?

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 +Air Malta 

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.

Edited:
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.

The video has quite a few issues. The most annoying of them is how they resolve the phenomenon of mind to brain function.

My family story, an unexpected turn.

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.

Bonus:
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.
