One of the basic fundamental thoughts about existentialism is the question: “What was first? The idea/concept or the result/object?” Imagine living before the dark ages has started, before Christianity became popular, before we had proper houses, before paper was invented, and in a time when there were a mere 1 billion people on this planet.

  Open brief aan Geert Wilders (open letter to Geert Wilders English below Dutch) Geert, Geert, Geert….. Ik heb het eigenlijk met je te doen. Ettertje, galbakje, muggenziftertje, van me.

I don’t need possessions, or consumption to define who I am. I don’t need money to buy the attention I need. I don’t need wealth nor material richness to show other people how good I am and how well I have arranged my life. I don’t need a big house, an expensive car, fancy clothes, […]


If I were to believe in a God, how would I connect? How would I feel? How would I react? How would I approach life here on earth? What would become of me if He was indeed there and be a guide, a father, a common spirit in us all? He might appear differently in […]


When I was in India in 2006 with my class on a study travel, I was sitting in an internet cafe. I was writing about what we experienced and learned thus far. It was in December in Varanasi. Suddenly a consternation and many people came running from the left side of me and stopping right […]


If I were with you, I’d stand in front of you If I were with you, I’d gently put my hands on your side If I were with you, I’d let you look in my eyes and I’d smile If I were with you, by now you’d see how much I love you


What day will Jan 7 be remembered for? Just an ordinary Wednesday? A day where it is actually very cold? Yeah, cold it is. It’s freezing cold with a -17 Celsius. The skies were threatening dark, no sun, no brightness, and no clarity. The snow fell – clearing it was futile. That day I am […]
