“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
― Mary Oliver
Poetry came into my life like a wild horse. I was an ignorant youth, both confused and depressed. But, aroused to write, I was solaced, and we rode into a magnificent dawn on the way of peace.
When I got into university however, after regular lucubrations of English and Dutch Literature for one year, I suffered severely from PTSD and therefor dropped out of university. Because of my mental health issues and the difficulty I had to concentrate, I pressed forward down another path.
Now, I am 32, living in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands, and have become a massage therapist. But, my desire to give shape to the poems that I feel are within me has never ceased to be big and enduring.
I started this blog mostly out of curiosity, and the longer the more, I have been viewing my blog as a space wherein I can share the things I enjoy and that are important to me, such as my progress as a poet, as a massage therapist and as a disciple of Jesus Christ. May I meet and succeed in this endeavor with simplicity.
I thank you for reading, and for bearing with me.
