"A real writer from the heart don’t just collect stuff from others, you have to learn to write from your heart. You grow in time to write what you love to do. You learn every day new ways on what others want to read, what others like to read or what others needed to read." ~ Angelica Hopes, P of your Ears www.angelicahopes.com

Sharing you a great article:

"The word-hoard: Robert Macfarlane on rewilding our language of landscape"
For decades the leading nature writer has been collecting unusual words for landscapes and natural phenomena – from aquabob to zawn. It’s a lexicon we need to cherish in an age when a junior dictionary finds room for ‘broadband’ but has no place for ‘bluebell’

Never use hate against hate, aggression against aggression, violence against violence. Pen for peace is mightier than any forms of violence.

No to #violence. No to #terrorism.
May the victims rest in peace.

Why stereotype people according to their race or why compare and be discontented when you hold a “universal passport” for your chosen kind of “better life” shining through a better heart, an understanding mind and a joyful, good soul?” ~ Angelica Hopes

La gratitudine, come certi fiori, non cresce in alta quota e rinverdisce meglio nella terra buona dell'umiltà. ~ Jose Marti 

Translation:
Gratitude, like certain flowers, does not grow in high altitudes and cherishes better in a good soil of humility.

Be informed and spread this news: 600 CUBIC METERS OF FOOD, CLOTHING AND DOMESTIC THINGS - RELIEF GOODS still stopped at the ports of the Philippines - THESE CONTAINERS OF RELIEF GOODS NEVER REACHED THE HAIYAN/YOLANDA victims/survivors until now!

Translation of the Dutch Text/news on the link from Een Vandaag:

Relief Goods for Haiyan Victims Never Arrived
Almost a year after typhoon Haiyan made thousands of victims, large amounts of food, clothing and domestic things haven’t arrived yet. 600 cubic meters are still stopped in the ports of the Philippines. Bureaucracy, corruption and local legislation frustrate the passing through according private organizations.

Theresa Gloria from Arnhem collected last year goods, to help the victims on her birthplace. Four shipping containers are still in the port of Manila. By now the costs have risen in the tens of thousands of Euro’s. In an “EenVandaag” conversation today.

We also have a look in Belgium, what happened with, what was collected over there. Twelve of their containers, with second hand clothes are still stuck in the Philippine Port.

Ignorance from the private collecting organisations
Dinky Soliman, the Philippine secretary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development acknowledged the problems but point out the law regarding second hand clothes. Import of used jeans and T-shirts is prohibited in the Philippines. According to the minister, private citizens have insufficient knowledge on these regulations.
An omnipresent problem according Thea Hilhorst. She is a academic humanitarian aid at the university of Wageningen. Still she doesn’t want to discourage private citizens to donate.

She points out, its better to give money, so things can be bought locally. Both donors who collected second hand clothes and other things point out, that these are relief goods. They want that the Philippine government takes its responsibility.
