Human

Humans of NewYork is a website which I really love. I am intrigued by all the sincere stories.
Have a look here: http://www.humansofnewyork.com

Look at these little stories I’ve found there:

“I broke his nose in a mosh pit.”
Well that’s a special way to find a boyfriend.

hony2
“I found him in the trash. I named him Shadow because he followed me everywhere.”
Heartbreaking.

hony3
These two were acting like complete teenagers. When I walked up, she was nuzzling her head against his shoulder. She giggled the entire time I talked with them, while he kept a big goofy grin on his face. And whenever I asked about their relationship, she clutched his arm, looked at him just like this, giggled, then said: “We’re not telling!”
So cute

Christmas?

In The Netherlands we celebrate Christmas on the 25th and 26th of december. A lot of people won’t have to work on these days.
Now as a heathen I also like Christmas. The way of celebrating can look a lot like Yule or Midwinter (the pagan or heathen holiday around the 21th of december).
The Yuleday is celebrating-time for me and my love. We use the two Christmasdays to visit our family.
This year we had our Yule celebration at my cosy house, I made a delicious meal and we visited nature. On the first Christmasday we had dinner at his parents and the second Christmasday dinner at my parents with presents.
It was a lot of fun.
Our own Christmastree had underneath a little crib with Jesus in it and we had little lights and red and purple balls in it.

Chef’s knife

One of the most important things in the kitchen is a good knife. I prefer a big one, with this one I slice all my food. It saves space, my kitchen is not big.
If you buy one of high quality you can sharpen it when necessary.
Let me show you some pretty ones:

Knife1
It is a Cat Cora 8 inch chef’s knife found on goodhousekeeping.com

Knife2
This is an Owen Bush’s Damascus Kitchen Knife, I love the look.

Knife3
This Stelton knife is made of stainless steel, the colour is intriguing.

I use this cheap one of Le Chef, I bought it at Blokker in The Netherlands a couple of years ago:

I find it very important to have a round cutting edge, with a simple movement you can slice real quick through the meat, vegetables etcetera because of the shape.

What is your favourite kitchen tool?

Spiritual Poetry 1

With my eyes closed
With my ears open
I smell tasting
The Present

With my eyes closed
With my heart open
I hear the Cosmos
She pulsates deep inside me

With my eyes closed
With my hands on the Ground
I feel the Layers
From New to Old to Oldest

With my eyes closed
With my third eye open
I see the Others
They who stand around and behind me

With my eyes closed
With my eyes closed
I experience the World
As She really reveals Herself to me

Kreator

On the fourth of december I saw Kreator live for the first time in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
I loved it, it was one of the best concerts I’ve been to.
The vibe on a trashmetal concert like this is amazing, strong yet peaceful.
One of my favourite songs is Phobia, have a look if you want:
