Goodmorning dear ones, here’s another Friday and another haiku for you.
|Geuren in de lucht.
Zoute zee. Helmgras ruikt naar
helmgras, zand naar niets.
|There’s scents in the air.
Salty water. Marram grass.
Sand smells like nothing.
Can you tell I am trying to quit smoking?
I haven’t smoked a sigarette for three days now and the world is full of smells!
The photo is taken by Lena Schreijenberg
and I submit this haiku to Haiku my Heart
Days keep flying by and I haven’t had much time to create art journal pages lately… but here’s two of my latest spreads
The Chronicles of Marit 2021 – Week 10
The Chronicles of Marit 2021 – Week 11
In week 11, general elections were held in the Netherlands – the picture of this lady, who won a lot of votes and danced on the tabel, was in all the newspapers. Instead of using the photo, I created a drawing of her. The photo is of my son, who volunteered in the polling stations. That was only three weeks ago but a lot has happened in politics since then… I don’t know if I will mention it all in my journal – we’ll see. However, I do hope to find some time to create this weekend. Oh, and go for daily walks – that’s highly recommended by doctors and neuroscientists here in the Netherlands to keep a healthy body and mind and I can do with a little exercise 😉
Thanks for your visit,
enjoy your day/weekend,
go do something fun,
go for a walk and smell the roses
(or whatever’s in the air…)
