Recorded musings

In the course of Spring of 2023, something inside of me stirred itself and called me to start sharing observations with you, hence: recorded musings.

And yes, they are in English even though that is not my mother tongue. However, this way I can reach out to non-Dutch speakers too with what I hope are heartfelt musings.

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.
I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

Emily Dickinson, 1212


Good question.

I do not fully know, yet.

What I can say is that I am committed to speaking from the heart to the best of my abilities. And to share what comes up and wants to be said when it does.

I heard, as if I had no Ear
Until a Vital Word
Came all the way from Life to me
And then I knew I heard.

Emily Dickinson, 1028

Nature and recorded musings: a wonderful combination

Recorded musings

Below you can find the various recordings.

Please note that I do not edit them, but publish them just as they are.

In addition, I make my recordings outside, in Nature, and in the simplest of manners. I use no more than my iPhone.
