I’m not that much of a writer. There originates not much in me that has not already been written about a thousand times on the net. And that is okay. Instead I collect stories and images that are interesting to me. Because they resonate with ‘where I am, now’. And I like to share with the world out there what I see and ponder about 🙂
So you might notice this blog is all over the place, as am I. It is maybe different now from then, as am I. And who knows, maybe I will discover some purpose along the way.
By the way, ‘Mieterse boel’ is a dutch way of saying ‘the whole shebang’, although apparently I’m one of the few remaining peeps to say or remember that. Once in a diner, that I visited with my wife and daughter, after looking at all the options of a breakfast menu, I ordered the ‘hele mieterse boel’, meaning, the coffee, cheese, croissant, orange juice, bacon, eggs, a banana….well you know, the whole shebang!
The waiter nodded, and it was not until after I saw my wife and daughter with a red head from holding in their laughter that I suspected there was something funny going on. When the waiter was gone they yelled: “Mieterse boel??? Really!!??!? What does that even mean!?!” Well it’s perfectly normal and common Dutch expression, thank you very much!
Hence, ergo, thus, so it came to pass…
