Have you ever thought that if 10,000 years ago one Grain hadn’t been planted and cultivated, a whole set of things never would have either? Like dominoes in time, that single event kicked off an unstoppable series of changes that gained momentum and spun out of control, and nothing was ever the same again. Don’t ever doubt that a mere second can change life forever.  – adapted quote by unknown.


The Rainy African Sky (part 1)

How to picture rain?

How to describe the feeling one can have with an approaching storm when stranded next to the road somewhere in rural Africa?
How to bring the message over how it is to accept facts that used to be unknown?
How to describe standing on the road, looking to the horizon seeing clouds coming in? Slowly but surely they are coming. The colors are changing, the sun gets covered, the bright light dims, and darkness suddenly is there.

The wind starts blowing, fresh and you know things will be bad.
The birds once singing their tune keep silence; there aren’t even flies buzzing around your ears.

Yes, this rain, you see it coming from the distance. This rain is a part of the story I’m about to tell. Read More…

3 Buses (part 2 from The Rainy African Sky)

Continued from part 1, The Rainy African Sky…..

In that morning when we were together, before all the meetings, the conversation with Koko and the storm I tried to get my laptop working that broke the day before and I shared my travel to Children’s town story. That trip is a trip not to forget and they listened to what I had to say, so I began:

Landless corner was the place where I had to go off the bus. I was wondering why it was called Landless; how can that be? After a couple of hours bussing I arrived. The place was open – bigger places both from mud and asphalt was there where buses could stop to change passengers. Most of the big buses pass by without even limiting speed. All goes so fast and here at landless it seems that the pace of life even goes slower than I already experienced in Zambia. Read More…

To Troll or Not to Troll?

I just read, actually a very nice and empowering, post by Olive Ole: Technique against Trolls and Bullies.
I think much of all the advice absolutely makes sense and I also agree with that. Still, I might have some points I’d like to complement without taking anything away of that post. I write a blog post on its own instead of a comment as I can write more freely here 🙂

Dutch Racism

Between 2012 and 2015 I lived in the USA. I was working with a multi cultural organization with many different cultures, from many different countries from many different ages going to yet another culture to fight poverty. It was a big challenge to lead teams, to be in that mix of people. They all were shaped by their own cultural background and personal experiences to be put in a team to live together for over a year or so.

However, all of us were foreign to the states. The staff, participants, everyone came from elsewhere. Except for the accountant, handy man and Valor. They were Americans but Valor not by birth.  Read More…
