First snow

Yesterday, the first snow fell this winter. And not just a few snowflakes.
Today started with more snow, but at this moment, it has already started melting.

A new me

I am on my way to create – or try to create – a new and improved me!
For one and a half month, I have been trying to get rid of excessive weight, and so far, it works fine. Besides eating less, I have primarily cut down on unhealthy food. So not only am I looking forward to be slimmer, but also healthier.
I am going in that direction, but I am not there yet.

Right?

For so long I have – almost blindly – followed the route laid out for me. Listening to good advices and done as told. And I have never felt so lost.

Today, at a walk through a nearby forest, I saw this arrow, pointing right. I walked left – and it felt so right.

Time off in Japan

My holiday this summer has been a short trip to Japan. I have just returned from a fantastic – yet pretty warm – journey to the cities Kyoto and Tokyo, with a short visit to Hiroshima and Miyajima.




The Road Ahead

RoadYou may see a road, so easy to follow.
But you still can’t be certain where it will take you.
And if you keep on staring at the road ahead, you won’t notice those many shortcuts and detours, leading to other Places!

Since I moved …

More than a year has gone, since I decided to sell my house, and for more than half a year, I have lived in a rental apartment.
I sold a nice house. Old but in good shape. In a small town with fine neighbors. Still I have not regretted my decision for one moment. I was really tired of working with an old house and a large garden.
Although I chose my current apartment only because it was quick to get, I have come to like the place. I’m not going to remain here. But for now it is fine.
