This is what I will write: some thoughts, some stories, some of myself. The way I see the way of life. It is just me, my views, my opinions, my way of saying, my way of writing. My spirit, my fire, my love and the freedom of being myself.

A smile

Monday, July 26, 2010

I smile to an old friend
The Mountain

a friend that will never betray you
will never turn his back
will not break a promise
and will not promise what it cannot fulfill

a friend who deserve my loving smile
a friend I can always rely on
even when everything else fail to make me smile.

Friends come and go
when you most need them, they are never there,
especially those who promised you eternal friendship are the first to disappear

The mountain  with its silence
its solid rocks                                                            
the murmuring rivers
the winds whispering between the trees
will always take me back to myself
to my heart, to my prayer
and to those who are truly close to me
and need not to say it.

I deeply thank  my body who is allowing me to "still" walk up the mountain top
and back to the valley with a smile and a tear on my face.

My way to God

Sunday, July 11, 2010

 On the Bocca del Brenta, 2700m. on the Brenta dolomiti group.

Okay, enough football! The 2010 world cup is over. Thanks God. My beloved Oranje lost and Spain won! Good for them. It is just a game. Cool is that the Germans didn't win:-)

In Amsterdam there will be anyway a million people party on Tuesday 14 July with the Oranje team at Museumplein. That is the good spirit of my Dutch fellow brothers. They know how to celebrate.

But I won't be there as I am already in Italy, and finally leaving today for my 200km St. Francesco pilgrimage.

Walking walking walking and praying in gratitude for the blessing of being alive of living of loving and of esperiencing pain. All of it makes it all worth to say to God. Thank you for the gift of life.

Ode to the mountain

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Let me lean at your cross my sweet Lord
high into the sky
where I seem to fly with the clouds
One step more
and paradise is just the joy to be here.
Being at your feet
makes every pain bearable
Can I stay with you a little longer?

The silence up here makes my heart 
rejoice of Your wonders.
How can I ever forget 
you are walking with me 

all of the time
Mount  Vecla or Mount Cornicolo, in the Maddalene chain. Val di Non Trentino

And the eyes never stop to wonder.......
