Its in my Heart and in my Soul

It is in my heart and in my soul ,

and of course: in the Rain!:

the landscape, bridges, canals of my youth.

Most people think of the Netherlands as flat,

lots of water, cycles, people eating raw herrings and lovely musea.

The above and much more is certainly true.

The bridges like the one below are immortalised in Vincent van Gogh’s paintings

Whilst looking for the essence of the Netherlands, I felt this  represents it for me.

In my heart, in my soul and in the rain.

In my heart, in my soul and in the rain.

  1. Good post, Paula, its good to hear about a person’s fundamental, heartfelt feelings – and yes, I admire van Gogh greatly, and can recall these bridges in his works. Do you never yearn to return there to live – or has Devon really got to you too? Adrian

    • Thank you, Adrian…Yes..I do yearn to go back…but not sure, it is very full!..the UK has a lot to offer as well! Having the best of both worlds seems to be the thing, although it is a long way driving I do want my bike!

Views through a lens - a personal viewpoint



Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
