Old and New

Old hobbies, new hobbies. New dreams. That is what I find occupying my time these days.

As many of my readers must have realised by now, I like travelling, taking pictures and recently discovered a deeper love for writing. That's why decided to start writing my first book. It will not be a novel, nor will I give up my job to do so. I will tell the story behind photo's I take.

During this week off, I started to work more seriously on this project . And promptly discovered how important it is to have a back-up of important stuff. You would think an IT-guy would know better. I felt down for just a couple of hours and restarted the project with renewed vigour. Today I have been working on the parameters defining this and future books, yeah I'm ambitious. Up until yesterday, it was obvious that I would be writing in English and Dutch.  Today, I changed my mind. English will still be the first language, but the second will be my mother tongue. There aren't many books in Papiamentu and I would like to think I can make a small contribution.

This first one will be populated with pictures from Lisbon and Belem. There is no time set yet for publication, if ever. I will be researching and going back to take pictures I feel are needed. This will be a work in progress and I will enjoy every moment of it.

Other than that, not a lot has been happening. Except that I got a very nice belated birthday present from two dear friends. It was highly appreciated.
