Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Life lessons


The lessons in life
Inspire to struggle and learn
Challenging everything familiar
To go and look beyond what I know

Pushing me to let go more and more
Of what once was considered important
Opening up new possibilities
To help others without a regret

As life becomes transparent and simple
The need to cling and grasp subsides
Life points the way
Gratitude is my companion
Compassion is her shield

Being fully open to the present
Is all that life requires

  1. wonderful poem, Pieter. By the way, I started to draw the photo you once made with the old church. Will show later in my blog. It’s very, very difficult and a lot of work. Have a nice day, regards Mitza

  2. Thank you Mitza πŸ™‚
    And good luck and lots of fun with the drawing! I’m sure to reblog that post πŸ˜€
    Warm wishes, Pieter

  3. Thank you for your words Pieter. They are very important.
