De vrachtwagen (deel II)

De vrachtwagen (deel II)

Het luide geknars en gepiep van de vrachtwagen onder mij, dat zich al slingerend een weg baant door het uitgestrekte landschap, brengt mij terug in de realiteit. Een warme met stof gevulde stroom lucht uit het halfgeopende raam naast mij, strijkt langs mijn gezicht, uitgegroeide krullende baard, en bruin geblakerde met zweet bedekte glimmende hals. Het lijkt alsof ik in een hete lucht oven ben gezet die zijn inhoud langzaam gaar kookt om later verorbert te worden. ‘Waarom was ik…

De vrachtwagen (deel I)

De vrachtwagen (deel I)

Zweetdruppels lopen in straaltjes langs mijn voorhoofd terwijl de zon weerkaatst op het afgebrokkelde en gescheurde asfalt voor mij. Het slingert zich als een grijze witte massa door het landschap dat voor mij ligt. De hitte van de zon zorgt voor luchttrillingen die de ver gestrekte uitzichten zo nu en dan troebel maken.

Let them be defeated and slain by your heat, your strength, your ancient symbols. I see…

Listening

Listening

The one thing I long for is your listening ear. To be fully heard with all my expressions. Listened to in peace. To be asked questions to find deep inner answers. Not to be judged by what I say. I want this sacred safe space in which I can share openly with all my heart. Hey there, can you really listen? Can you really be without judgment? Is this too difficult to ask for? I don’t want to hear your…
