Seeing this beautifully made video makes me feel uncomfortable and guilty … and that is the purpose of this artwork … a “must-see” !
This book makes you look differently Thalia has already written some important things in an article (in Dutch). For the time being, the book has only been published in Dutch. I strongly recommend this book, also for avid cyclists, because it allows you to think thoroughly about the situation in our living space and toContinue reading “the right of the fastest”
My colleagues Harm and Bram saw me arriving at work in my velomobile and made a video with their mobile phone. Nicely done guys! If I’d known they were recording … I would’ve gone much faster 😉
This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before it’s too late.
A large part of my “sandwalk” has been declared a prohibited area by “Natuurmonumenten“. The last bit of sympathy for this organization has also disappeared. On their site they show some nice photos and texts : Is your heart in nature? At Natuurmonumenten we give plants and animals a larger habitat. This is the backyardContinue reading “a piece of my sandwalk was stolen”
A fantastic initiative, a free library! You see them more and more. Just a cupboard with all kinds of books. You borrow a book and put another (already read) in return. Fortunately, there are still people with a positive view of man who find it important that people read books and are not afraid ofContinue reading “a new library in my neighbourhood”
Wealth is a deep understanding of the natural world. Bill Mollison An intensive monoculture is the breeding ground for unwanted viruses and diseases … That is why people should keep 1.5 meters away from each other …But how many cows, chickens, pigs, etc. are kept in a modern barn?How much corn, wheat, soy, grain, etc.Continue reading “Just sitting on our porch, wasting time …”
Especially now, in the year 2019, in which the Dutch politics (by becoming aware of a rapidly changing climate) reluctantly published the much-needed choices, these eyes for me have become a motivation to live environmentally conscious too. Of course, the measures are not nearly as effective as necessary. And of course, the plans are basedContinue reading “These eyes will witness the world I’ll leave behind …”
I don’t know how to translate the term “deugen” into English. There is no literal translation. Perhaps English speakers do not live with “virtues” ? In any case, I am reading this book and despite the fact that I have only just begun, it is clear that it is recommended for everyone!
We were in Jánovas before, but it made such an intense impression that we wanted to go there again to see the progress of the restorations. All current information can be found on this site. A few streets have common facilities such as water, electricity and sewerage. They are also nicely sealed with a provisionalContinue reading “Jánovas revisited”
We drove at ease through Aragon. A beautiful area where a proud people have lived for centuries, just listen to this song … It is a pity that the old culture of living in small villages nowadays suffers from migration to the big city. I expect that the coming energy- and economy transition will causeContinue reading “Aragon”

I often consider memes have the same function as photos … they tell more than a thousand words. During discussions on climate change and energy transition that I have with friends and colleagues, I often think of memes I’ve seen. It strikes me that the meaning of words and concepts is slowly but surely changing.Continue reading “the changing climate”
