Smile When ...

1 day ago, for day 113 by Fiene

Smile when your heart is breaking. Smile, even though it's aching. I've always found that song to be not just beautiful, but wise. It teaches you a lot about how to deal with grief and with sad situations. I know that smiling through the pain is not always easy but...

Dumplings in The Soup

2 days ago, for day 112 by Fiene

One of the traditional dishes in this area is a beef stew with little dumplings in it. When I first got here, I did not like the dumplings at all. Now, a couple of years later, they are my favourite part of the whole soup. I guess, things grow on...

A Sucker For a Transformation

3 days ago, for day 111 by Fiene

I love makeover shows. Love, Love Love them. They are my favourite thing to watch when I am feeling a little down, need a pick-me-up, a little boost of good cheer and human spirit. I realize that not everything can be fixed with a new lipstick, fab clothes, or new...

Hollandaise Sauce

3 days ago, for day 110 by Fiene

I love hollandaise sauce but I have yet to learn how to make it consistently. Sometimes it works beautifully on the first try, sometimes it just falls apart. Today, I messed it up three times before I finally got it but the result was absolutely worth it. This is the...

Susan Boyle

5 days ago, for day 109 by Fiene

When I am feeling a little down and need a pick-me-up, I go and watch singing auditions on YouTube. There is something about them that cheers me up. The new interpretations of favourite songs, the tension, and the surprises. The awkwardness the artists display before they start to sing, the...

No Idea

6 days ago, for day 108 by Fiene

I always thought the reason for doing the most important things early in the morning was because then you still had the energy. For most people, the morning(ish) hours are the sharpest of the day and they get a lot more tired as the day goes on. Once five PM...

Mobile Responsibly

1 week ago, for day 107 by Fiene

I have half an hour of spare time. My workday is over but I am waiting here in the office just in case my son comes back from the train station (he was taking the train home) without having boarded the train. We are practicing for him to get around...

On Good Advice

1 week ago, for day 106 by Fiene

I reread Winnie-The Pooh recently and I can not help but marvel at the depth of wisdom contained in this gem of children's literature. If you are ever in need of good advice on how to live life and how to take care of yourself as well as of your...

Centuries Ablaze

1 week ago, for day 105 by Fiene

Notre Dame is burning. Centuries are gone in minutes, torn away by a blaze that seemed to have come out of nowhere. Did you think a cathedral could burn down in less than an hour? I didn't. In fact, my first thought was "what is there to burn? It is...

To me, poetry is the art of saying a lot with a little. It means to distil emotions, meaning, and narrative in such a way that it becomes a picture in the reader's mind. It is a little bit like amber that traps an insect from millennia ago. Poetry traps...
