time warp.

May 4, 2012
Wow, how has it already been a week, since my last post? In that week, I went on a boat to an island in the north sea and back again. Spent Queensday in Amsterdam and then 10 hours on a train to Germany, where I will remain for the next 9 days. Then it's back to Amsterdam for a few days, after that Berlin for a weekend, before officially settling in Hamburg for an internship for the next 6 months. Phew.
Seriously, sometimes all this throws me for a loop. Everything exciting and beautiful you had been looking forward to for weeks and weeks, just passes by in the smallest blink of an eye. And you are left standing with more memories and a heap of new things to anticipate.
Don't you wish sometimes, you could press a button that slowed down time? Or even stopped it for a while? So you can be there, in that moment, to admire and enjoy and relax and breathe for just a bit longer.
Immersing myself in pictures has a somewhat similar effect, allowing to relive past moments. That's what I'll do over the next couple of days. Playing catch up, because there are so many fun things I still want to show you and myself (again).
Like these pictures of my favorite farmer's market in Amsterdam. Noordermarkt.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

This is pure joy to look at. Did you cook a lot? I would probably have taken with me half of that farmers market home :)

The days seem to move so slowly, but the months rush by... I think we need to meditate more. (That's the only thing I know that will slow down time). Don't you agree?

Maja :

My wise Anna. I find it so enriching when you leave such great comments. and you are right, meditating is such a good way to slow down a bit. i do have a hard time committing to it for more then ten minutes though...any advice?
