Catch 2012

Yes. That is me some time ago. Trying to fish. I don't think I ever got any fish with that rod. But, it was fun. And I tried. I am also pretty sure I used my imagination creating the most wonderful and large fishes I would catch.

Unless you try and make a real effort you don't know what you can catch.  And while "fishing" you might also have some fun and learn something.

So, go out there. Bring out that special rod of yours.  And aim for some big fishes.

What are you trying to catch next year?
Well, whatever it is - Happy Hunting in 2012.

Today has been a playful day. Met a couple of highly interesting, creative and fun persons. We had a very good time.
Seemed we learned to know each other rather quick. And once we were on speaking terms the magic started. We played, giggled, told stories, asked questions, watched, observed - and had fun together.

Of course the fun and play ended too soon.

I would not mind another day with that Magical Team!  Just give me a shout - and I'll be there again!

Low profile

My mother came by on Christmas Eve for a brief visit. As usual she told my children how I was as a kid. Here is one of those stories:

In some sort of pre-school I impressed the teachers with my extreme knowledge about all sorts of things. We often sat on floor and a teacher showed a picture with an animal, plan, flower, insect, vehicle - well anything. I never raised my hand - but teacher sometimes asked me anyway. And every time I immediately provided the correct name of the animal or flower. Every time! Apparently teachers were impressed and reported my deep knowledge to my parents.

The trick? Well, all signs had the names of object printed below the picture and apparently I was the only kid in that class of very young people that could read! And this was apparently a well kept secret.I played along in all sorts of game - hiding th fact I could read and write.

My parents revealed I could read and write and the mystery was gone. After that my mother asked: "But why didn't you tell them you could read? And why didn't you raise your hand?"

"But, mum, don't you think we should give the other kids a chance too?"

The end.

Coolest list ever

Andrew Townley made some recommendations about interesting people he had found. (Lists were/are located at )

It was very flattering to find myself on one of the lists. Together with two persons that inspires me a lot!

The list was:

 (List is rather old. But still very flattering :-))

To see a grain in a world of sand
And a wild flower in heaven
Hold your hand through infinity
Or at least an hour of eternity

(Modified version of William Blake's:
To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.)
