  • 2020 – A Year in Review

    2020 has been a strange year. A year where the world has lost its track and I (somewhat) found mine. It started badly, where all sorts of things went wrong, and in the middle of the rumbles I finally realised that I had noone to blame but myself. My mind cleared up and for the…

  • 2019 – A Year in Review

    It was a year when my hair went white. My eyes drooped and lines around the mouth became permanent. It was there, on my face, the tiredness, the stress, the anxiety. In June, I stopped breathing. My body forgot how to breathe. Sometimes when I meditated, I had to bend down to the pillow and…

  • 2014 – A Year in Review

    So the first month of the new year has passed and finally I have gathered enough guilt from procrastination to really sit down and take a look back on the last year. 2014 was a year of trials and experiments, a pilot year to test myself and play with different strategies and see if I…

  • 2013 – A Year in Review

    What can happen in a year? Each and every year has never been a string of boring beads for me, especially after high school. Each one struck me with its own marvelous wonders and heart-breaking griefs. Always a lot of ups and downs and small cute surprises in between. My life flourishes in a way an…
