waiting

We will wait for it ...

There is an enormous hectic around us ... -20C around the house in Russia ... a little snow and tulips that want to go outside around the house in the Netherlands ... a far too slow start of the anti-covid vaccinations ... a slippery road towards the water sales point in Russia ... too many people together in a supermarket in Brielle ... a center of democracy that has turned into a fortress ... an ultra-modern metro with too many commuters packed together ...

Yesterday we were crazy about happiness. And today ? Yesterday we just got on a plane to and from Moscow. And today ? Yesterday we could make a future. And today ? Yesterday we were able to mingle with the visitors of a service in Sretenski. And today ? Yesterday only cancer was life-threatening. And today ? Yesterday there in hospital was still an opportunity for being scheduled for a relatively simple procedure. And now ? Yesterday we were still busy with work. And today ? Yesterday the tulips knew nothing about the present time. And today ?

We will wait for it … there is no any other option ..

Democracy is coming ...

trees

I was there regularly ... even during heavy storms .. it was sometimes haunted ... In my imagination I saw the raging sea on the left side of this dike, I saw the farmers strengthen their joint dike with the limited resources available. I saw their grain drown in the salt water.

There is now no question of any threat from the side of the sea. The polder is protected by a sturdy sea dike all around and by the Haringvlietdam and Grevelingendam respectively. It is a dike mainly used by farmers. And by a lonely cyclist.

The trees are waiting patiently now, they are waiting for the coming higher temperatures. The green leaf automatically reappears in the spring, the leaves that consume our excess CO2, and return O2 to the environment in return.

Rows of trees on dikes are not only useful elements of the environment, they are - in my opinion - also beautiful designers of the cultural landscape. They determine my flat landscape. And when the time is right, they also yield wood. Wood for furniture, clogs, warmth. The value of trees.

It was nice to be here on 01 02 2021. The regularity of nature, the ever-present trees, it gives peace.

Why trees ?

soldiers of kindness


Meanwhile ...

A retarded youngster received a free portion of fries with mayonnaise at a french-fries shop in Tholen ...

Also in the Russian winter, "company guard dogs" were fed every day at a company in Moscow ...

Was fresh pea soup distributed in Hellevoetsluis ...

Was a microwave oven moved to a person in need in South Holland …

Was there a powerful @ from the province of Groningen ...

In the village I live in, a tired nurse went on the night shift again on behalf of covid patients ...

In the village I saw a young miller in loneliness turning the mill around in order not to miss out on the subsidy for the building ...

I was pleasantly surprised with beautiful music from Oosterland ...

My eyes saw encouraging new creations from a tiny house in Brielle ...

I received a stunningly beautiful video from an 80+ lady from Tver ...

Was there a bag with groceries in front of someone who needs it ...

There were in a distant country many brave people who defended their democracy ...

I read encouraging messages from Germany ...

I again was invited for a brisk joint walk ...

There during the night was again a nice selection of breathtaking music from Sint-Philipsland ...

I saw all these people doing nice things…

In my eyes they all are Soldiers of Kindness !

remembrance


All moments once are a past. But all moments have a memory.

The best moments have a date, the worst memories also have a date.

Today we commemorate Victor from Tallinn / Estonia. In our memory a fantastic father, uncle and brother. The memory includes the hard fight against an approaching end, but also the night train journey to his city.

Today a little bit of the new Light could be seen above the Oosterschelde. The first anniversary a new life elsewhere.

promise


The numbers are terrifying. The suffering caused by COVID-19 cannot be described.

Are we going to hate fellow human beings who do not want to conform to the imposed measures ? Yes ! The impact in our own environment is undeniably great.

Are we going to accept that there are people who deny COVID-19 and its mutations ? No! We are going to make them responsible !

Are we going to accept the ignorance ? No! In 2021 there is fast internet, in 2021 stagecoaches and walking messengers are no longer present !

Promise… yes, there has been a promise for 2000+ years… the Light is coming back…

Or a new Flood after all ?

road


Who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time
And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose, only time.

Who can say when the roads meet
That love might be in your heart,


Only time.

the road ...

2021

The clock is ticking mercilessly. There is no more time for disputes and misunderstandings. Many people have a fear of what is to come, or of what is going to fail.

Are we all going to get an anti-covid-vaccination in the short term? Will we travel again in the coming year to Moscow / Normandy / Nieuwenhoorn / Paris / Sint-Philipsland / Tver / Oosterland / Kolomna / Schildwolde…? Are we going to stay healthy?

What is hidden for you in the balls in the Christmas tree? …. Time will tell ! "Only time" ...

I prefer the positive approach ... nothing is impossible!
