August 1st. A day of reflection. Is there still something of this child in me? The picture was taken before the time I can remember. Many years later I recognize this face in the faces of our family's children. I find that comforting .

A week in la douce france

Oebele is the name of a children's TV series on Dutch television in the late sixtees. Sadly, all the material of this briljant programme has been deleted. Only a few fragments have been saved. To my surprise, one of the most beautiful songs is on You Tube.

On monday the 14th of July, France will celebrate the national holiday. It is also the first anniversary of this blog. I wont be there because I will be in France the next week. Hope to come back with enough inspiration to feed this page.

Congratulations or Gefeliciteerd as we say in Dutch. At the HEMA, a popular Dutch warehouse, I found this guirlande. When you fold it you can put it in an envelop and send it as a (children's)birthdaycard. Put a few matching balloons with it and the party can begin.
