A thousand lives

We live a thousand lives together

Like children we play

Rejoicing

We knew each other

The cat and the mouse

Just delaying

Not daring to hope

The day I opened the door

Letting go at last

A past revisited together

Places we have been

So many adventures.

A new world beginning…

Forever may not be long enough…

On the joy of being a mum

The joys of motherhood:

  • when you finally drop off to sleep, only to be woken up by your little one having a nightmare.(aha!)
  • when they say the nicest things.
  • when they see the world so much more clearly than adults.
  • when they draw, paint, create and offer you their master piece.
  • when they first smile at you.
  • when you hear their babble.
  • when you see them persevering and finally succeed.
  • when they give you a cuddle.
  • when they snuggle up with you.
  • when they look at you in awe. I know, you’re going to tell me it won’t last.
  • when they try to cheer you up if you’re a little down in the dumps or not feeling well.
  • when they look radiant whatever the reason might be.
  • when their little faces lighten up.

And all these little things that fill you with joy and warm you up inside.


Jean-Paul Sartre

  • Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.
  • Politics is a science. You can demonstrate that you are right and that others are wrong.
  • We do not know what we want and yet we are responsible for what we are – that is the fact.
  • All that I know about my life, it seems, I have learned in books.
  • Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.
  • I do not believe in God; his existence has been disproved by Science. But in the concentration camp, I learned to believe in men.
  • If you are lonely when you’re alone, you are in bad company.
  • Life begins on the other side of despair.
  • We must act out passion before we can feel it.

I don’t care about your politics, I care about humanity!

I don’t care about your politics, all promising so much and delivering so little.

Elections in Britain, elections in Belgium, a small country in which people fail to cohabit  peacefully.

Who to trust, who to choose, the lesser of many evils ?

Who will stand for humanity, peace and harmony?!

Yes, I know, I’m a dreamer.I’m not the only one.Many people want to see change and a fairer society.

Who will listen?

I choose to believe in humanity, sometimes difficult looking around you and further afield with so many people too self-absorbed or apathetic to stand up and make difference.

I do not understand a world where millions of people go hungry, are homeless, suffering and dying needlessly of diseases that can either be prevented or better treated.

A world where people forget to respect others, hate some for the way they look, come from or what they believe in.

What is the sense in that? this world frightens me ,saddens me, horrifies me and makes me doubt.

Until, fortunately, I am reminded of all of us who are trying, who do care, who want to make  a difference, however small.The ones who respect others and want to contribute to a better, fairer, more humane society.
