14 creative ways to store and display your photos

When you have kids (or pets, or parents, or a collection of them all), you take a lot of photos. They are memories of some great times! And you want to remember them. Back in the old days you would print them and stick them in an album. In the age of digital, this has supposedly become easier. That is of course arguable. Because there are so many options out there and some of them often require you to hire a nerd to manage your way through. So today, I want to share a few creative ideas I have [...]

How a budget is like sex

I go running during lunchtime 2-3 times a week. Most often with some female colleagues. Sometimes we talk about life, the Universe and everything, sometimes we shut up and suffer uphill, and sometimes we solve problems in a creative way. The other day, one colleague asked me how running made you more creative. Well: it provides a mental break, an incubation time for any ideas you have been working on, it gives them time to simmer and connect with other things you exercise physically which sets f [...]

The powerful circle of a happy life

The other day I had an epiphany! I had the striking realisation that I am at the right place at the right moment, that what I do makes sense and has a purpose and that I am blessed with a wonderful circle of people supporting me in my journey. A few things contributed to that moment. The physical thing. I had an amazing Reiki session with my dear friend and spiritual sister, who always makes my body talk so that I can understand and puts all the wheels and cogs turning in the right direction aga [...]

How John Malkovich can make you more creative

As you know, I like to shape serendipity. Therefore, some time ago, I went to see the "Giacomo Variations" where John Malkovich plays Casanova. So here are the observations and discoveries that John Malkovich and the show offered me: John Malkovich can hold a pretty tune. Who knew! Assumptions are often proven wrong! What assumptions are you having that you want to try to prove wrong this week? Casanova should have been a hippy. He was definitely born in the wrong century, what with all those bu [...]

My Urban Piano Luxembourg 2017

I was recently asked by the City of Luxembourg to participate in their yearly My Urban Piano project. The project consists of 21 pianos that are placed in the streets and near sights of Luxembourg city in order to liven up the public space. Each piano has been 'created' by groups from the non profit, educational or artistic world, mostly together with an artist. I was 'given' a piano and assigned a class of special needs teenagers from Ediff who looked at me with big eyes and full of expectatio [...]
