'In Almere is alles nieuw; daar is geen replica uit de Gouden Eeuw te vinden. Het heeft zijn korte geschiedenis, die meer is dan charme, en wie er goed kijkt zal het geen moeite kosten te zien dat de nieuwe stad en het nieuwe land ook mooi zijn, weergaloos.'

'Everything in Almere is new; there are no replica's from the Golden Age to be found here. It has a short history which is more than charm , and for those who observe carefully it will not be difficult to see that the new town and new land have an unparalleled beauty of their own.'

From: De ontdekking van Almere, H.J.A. Hofland

Singing for your life

We sang a Flash Mob with our choir in the hospital.
It was the week of the chronic sick patients and the choir I'm singing in
is part of Kanker in Beeld, in English: Cancer into vision.

Yesterday I walked through the woods of Lage Vuursche, 
a small village near  the 'broadcasttown' Hilversum and saw several fairy rings,
a naturally occurring ring or arc of mushrooms.
