I..

have been tagged by Veena from Toronto and have to reply on my blog so here goes:

I am thinking about...
.. finishing my studies before summer holidays, balancing out a new way of living and running the NY marathon next year.

I said...
.. "did I just say that?"

I want to...
..at least contribute something during my life, try out different ways of doing it and enjoy trying!

I wish...
..people would be more compassionate

I hear...
..airplanes flying over. Dang, they changed flight routes again..

I wonder...
..what happens if our mortal life ends.

I regret...
..having said things that sounded well at that time..

I am...
.. but a humble pilgrim, finding his way and smelling the flowers.

I dance...
..barefoot in the playground with my son.

I sing...
..quietly while playing the guitar, aloud when home alone and even louder in the car..

I cry...
..during a movie or a beautiful play, sometimes in real life too..

I am not always...
..easily satisfied..

I make with my hands...
..humble paintings, some music, the Ikea cupboard and too much memo's and reports..

I write...
..about happenings, people and circumstances in my life that surprise me and make me wonder.

I confuse...
..birth dates with telephone numbers. That's why I frequently call the wrong person too late.

I need...
..to enjoy the little things and give everything I have got to make things work

And finally...
..oh no, I am not there yet. Story continues. Thx for reading and take care!

Hey, since you're in Holland, should that not be 'smelling the coffee' instead of flowers?? Seriously though, as the game show host said; "good ansa,good ansa!

You sound like you have a very "full" life and are an "affable” sort of person” with a good life philosophy. My only suggestion to you is to refrain from “making things to work" as they may work out better, with space for their own life freedom or patience on your part.
Best wishes

Mr. Pink sings loud at home and loud in the car. Do your people beg you to stop? We beg him, but it doesn't work.

Thoughtful responses.
