Welcome to my blog!
In my dad’s words, I am chuffed to have you visit, so thank you 🙂
I figure that I am spiritually about 10% Dutch. I lived in Holland for six of the first ten years of my life, and I have wonderful memories of that time – memories that have been soaking back into my veins and reclaiming my soul since the minute we stepped on a KLM...

Pirate, dragon rider, dreamer, artist, super hero, poet or adventurer … don’t be afraid to follow your dreams, little man, and be proud just to be you.
Good friends who understand how things are with little explanation. The solidarity in having “been there”. That’s what these flowers remind me of.
