This mural in Centraal Station, Utrecht, Holland roughly translates to "Peace in your heart."
Hello! I've been so busy preparing to move, I keep forgetting to blog!
Am distracted by a million little things requiring my attention, not least dividing my possessions to go to three separate homes: some to my friend Gabrielle's house near Versailles; more to my friend Charlotte's home outside Paris and most of it to our new abode in the Netherlands. Gabrielle and Charlotte will babysit some precious and sentimental things until 1) we move to a larger place or 2) decide to sell the items. I've also had a scary dental appointment, a routine doctor's visit and photo shoots and edits. The hairdresser was a bit too scissors-happy for my liking, cutting off at least four inches and leaving me with an unintentional new look.
All this activity pales in importance with the recent deaths of two friends. Along with the tragedy in Tucson, these losses make worrying about what to do with too many possessions seem a ridiculous enterprise.
Much of this week I'll be in Amsterdam, but will post again soon. Meanwhile, some food for thought:
Barbie on skis at a French hair salon.
A profusion of pink blooms.
Library emptied in bid to fight closure. I love how these Brits are fighting for their local library!
