Last week I didn’t sit at my kitchen table. I strained my back, and when that got better I did the same with my shoulder. So sitting at a table, didn’t feel very comfortable. Unfortunately it also wasn’t possible to attend the philosophical book club evening or to pose for a friend’s photo project I wrote about last time.
Meanwhile my back and shoulder are better, and I’m sitting at my kitchen table now, looking back at the week.
A week in which Donald Trump was elected as the next president of the United States of America and I couldn’t believe it (and to be honest: I still don’t).
The neighbours went on a vacation. We drove them to the airport and took care of their cat. To thank us, they took us for lunch at the Gastrobar of Ron Blaauw in Amsterdam. It was delicious. As a dessert I got a surprise egg in an eatable nest with flowers. I was a happy woman.
My 2017 planner was delivered. Danielle Laporte’s Desire Map Planner. This year I had the same planner, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that the planner was such an important tool in starting up my business this year. It helped me set goals with my desires as a starting point, and helped me review these goals at the end of each week. I strongly recommend it (and this is an ad-free blog, so this is the sincere enthusiasm).
Instagram is one of my favourite online hang outs. Besides posting my own pictures, I love looking at pictures others are posting. In these week reviews I’d like to celebrate the account of photographers I love and admire. This week it’s the account of Narelle Carter-Quinlan. I met Narelle in an online photography course, and she’s one of the loveliest people I met on the www. And not only is she lovely, she creates these beautiful images in which she links body, emotions and landscape.

I kept working on my e-course ‘Create Creativity’. I so enjoyed the writing of it, and all things that come with launching the course, such as making videos and writing my love letter. I created the course with all my heart and I’m so happy how it turned out and with all the enrollments. We begin this Monday. If you want to join us, you can still sign up today or tomorrow. After that the doors close and you’ll have to wait for the next round.
