Ending or beginning

Every ending

is a new beginning

Life ends here…

And starts again.

At midday today I will close the door on 21 years in a sucsessful gynaecological practice, to start a new life. Many interesting things lead to this happening. It is really sad. But at the same time I am filled with fear and excitement. Fear for the unknown and excitement for a new life with many great new chalenges…

But first, a great new adventure. The love of my life, Frederika, and I are leaving for two months in Paris. The city of Lights. We will be living in the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris where I was awarded a two month art residency. We will spend it in a bachelors flat in a building on the righ bank of the Seine a stone throw away from the Notre Dame cathedral. Watch this space for photo’s in the near future. Our neighbours will be 80 artists, writers and musicians from all over the world who received the same privilege to immerse ouselfs in the art and culture of Paris and the world.

Yes, I do realise how fortunate I am.

But first we will visit friends of many years in Berlin, Germany. Afterwards we are off to a few days in Dresden with another previous exchange student and son, Max. On August the third we will book into our sabbatical and rest before we start our new life in October.
