I was so inspired by the heroic swimming regime of the Dutch ladies of the swimming club "Marsdiep". From april to october, they will swim in the North Sea, not minding the weather. I was so inspired I send them this postcard. And they replied !
How to make a commemorative plaque? I have no idea, so I just start.
I am thinking of that person, and how we can never know someones path, just like we can't now our own.
The birds fly in the sky, water is still flowing. There is a butterly in the branches. Ripe apples that have fallen from the trees, and a branch obscures the road.
But when the landscape is finished, it doesn't feel complete.
A black rim of a plate ? Or is that too heavy ?. But it IS heavy. To lose someone you've loved with all your might,
So I continue.
And then suddenly stars appear. There is a whole world out there we have no knowledge of.
The only thing missing is a golden ring.
And the only thing missing then is the saying "per aspera ad astra": through difficulties we reach the stars.
And then it is finished.
