January 27, Marjan sang the requiem “The Flood” written by Douwe Eisinga in the Zeeuws Concertkoor in the Vlissingen St. Jacobskerk. As an amateur I took some pictures, doing my best to be as inconspicuous as possible, not to get in anyone’s way, not to make a sound and not to disturb the requiem… SoContinue reading “Requiem “The Flood””

Just a beautiful version of Leonard Cohen’s “famous blue raincoat”
Last weekend there was a festival at NoordBeveland near Kortgene. It’s the “Endless Island Festival” 2022. We have experienced two days of this fun relaxed celebration. There was a lot of music, food, art, culture and … nice people! I made some photos … have to wait till next year …

About 50 years ago I saw this film for the first time. The music and images are stuck in my brain.

Have a nice X-mas and a better New Year
These old friends of ours always cheer us up at this time of the year with their singing and conviviality, despite the cold, despite the darkness and despite the illnesses.

Grandma plays vinyl !
Marjan has found a 45 rpm record that she often used in her own youth.

It isn’t blues, it isn’t jazz, it isn’t hiphop, …. it is Rory ! Music from my youth
Today is stormy and rainy … So I’m listening to my favorite music, reading de Correspondent , follow the money, the real news and many more … trying to follow the turbulent world news (the repeating history) … and I almost cut my hair … 😉 my “freak flag”
39 years ago …
he was murdered…. I still mis him.
