For my cousin Simon, with who I spent many weekends and holidays
as a child.
On the first picture you see us on the doorstep of our grandparents
house. I always think I remember this moment, but I wonder if that's
possible because I'm wearing diapers.
What I do remember is a stormy night in the Michelvanhammestraat,
laying each in a big bed and hearing scary noises.
And of course we have a special bond since we watched a Bruce Lee
movie and I wanted to teach you judo and you got me in the hospital ;).
No worries, it wasn't your fault, I was a bad teacher.
I wish we could see each other more often these days. Being both busy
it's difficult to . But you know that "out of sight, out of mind"
doesn't hold true!
Happy birthday Simon!

Flynn has some friends in town. She knows where they live and on our
walks she likes to pass by. If they aren't home, Flynn starts to cry and
peep.The same happens when we drive along their houses and she's not
able to get out of the car.
Her best friend, who you see on these pictures, is Django.

Tomorrow they will start cutting down 189 poplar trees in
the lanes behind our house. The trees are old, and they have to be
cut down because there is a risk that they might fall.
Still, it makes me a little sad. I walk there every day and from next
week on there will be new, little trees. It takes 60 years before these
new trees will be as big as those that are standing in the lanes now.
I imagine that Jonas will be 60 years old and I will probably be gone,
before the lanes look the same way as they do now.
