Can you believe it? 2011.
And i don't know why i am so darn happy?
Going into 2010 i tell you, i felt quite different, through the endless tears i cried, i cannot remember if on that new years morning if i maybe saw a little light of what was to come that year.
Hey :) nothing really changed in the big picture, here i am sitting behind the computer. From yesterday to today a lot changed; it is -4 C. outside, hot hot hot we call that. Yesterday the wind blew most of that snow of the trees.
I didn't even stay up to midnight, i did not bake oliebollen, still i am all smiles, my heart surges with joy.
I know it's called being loved, i know it's more pathetically than you think.
It's also me, loving me.
It's also my family happy.
I phoned my mom this morning. It happened to be that ALL of them where together (except me and my brother here in Canada that is) I could here them all laughing and noisy as we are (all this quiet here i tell you i am from a very loud family).
Bart (my favorite nephew:) answered the phone. My mom was so happy, she could hardly hear me. She had spend new years eve on her balcony with her best friends watching
the "incredible beautiful" fireworks from her balcony. She lives in the middle of the town. She didn't like the big 'bombs' exploding all day, the house shaking. I do miss the wildness of New Years eve in Holland. Even now i know you still here some firecrackers.
Here, here all is still :) the sky is turning morning blue, the stars are fading, no sound, no wind, when i stand in the soft weather long enough i hear in the far far distance a Raven talking....
