A new morning

What a fantastic morning!

What happend yesterday is not forgotten.
The images seen on TV stayed with me all night.
Not that I couldn't sleep.
It is just the first thing you think of when you wake up...

People say, it will never be the same again.
Of course it won't.
Maybe that is a good thing...
Maybe we should see what happend as a
"Wake up call"?
Not just about this great event each year in Holland and the security around it.
Of course it should be continued.
Of course security has to be optimized.
Of course their should be laughter and joy again!

The "Wake up call" that
in yesterdays event


That we have to honor life every day!

That we have to respect others every day!

That we have to laugh with our friends every day!! (Big one!!!)

That it is not fair to "dump" our problems on someone else!

That we should deal with our problems ourselves, and if we can't, we should seek help and never panic!

Panic is growing in our heads only if we allow it!


It's time to take the horse for a ride in the woods before it gets too warm.
It's 8:30 and 20˚ C already!
Midas doesn't appreciate the warm weather too much...

  6. Lovely day for a hack in the woods or surf...allowing the breeze light or otherwise wash over your spirit and take all cares away!

  7. There are so many tragedies in the world, big and small. Your thoughts on how to respond to them is right on. We need to mourn those who are lost. At the same time we need to embrace life and take the time to appreciate the good things around us, and in so doing make the world a better place.

  8. You are so right Michi! So sad,for everyone. I love your words, you said just the right thing.
    Have fun on your ride.

  9. Simply put...simply beautiful. Sad yes; shocking yes; reminded me of 911. You can see it happening, feel the pain and you are helpless to prevent the events unfolding in front of your very eyes. I cried that day...and I cried for the people in Holland. But your lovely words help the healing process for all that get the opportunity to read your blog.


  10. Unfortunately one more victim died. 7 lives gone and for what?
    6 of the insured didn't make, it and the driver of the black suzuki died also. He could have answered so many questions.. he took all the answers with him.
    I too had to think about 9/11 for a moment.
    I lived in Holland when that tragedy happend and I cried.
    This tragic event in Apeldoorn (NL) was not a strike in that sense, I believe that this guy just "lost it" and decided to end his life with a BIG BIG BANG!
    He chose the "perfect" time and occasion to "leave" for his purpose, what ever that was...
