This song and performance articulates best the way I try to live my life (in Dutch, with lyrics in Dutch, click for English subtitles):
en zeker ook het “onderweg” zijn, en gewiegd worden, being on the road, “roaming in the womb of being” … ❤

Painting (oil on canvas, 100x80cm) on my request by my father, accompanied with a crafted dish, a present from my godfather at my birth . The dish is a unique ceramic piece of art by Joost Maréchal (1911-1971) – see: http://www.joostmarechal.be/ .
On the painting some of the things I wanted my father to paint because they always had impressed me, he was kind enough to grant me my request: Saint-Rumbold’s Cathedral (Mechelen, Belgium) after which I was named, a moai from Eastern Island, Saint Mark’s Lion, symbol of the city of Venice, and the two swans symbolising my zodiac sign. They also are on my ceramic bithday-plate, above them Ygrassil, the Tree of Life.
