Dutch art (photoblog)
Here is an impression of a mother and daughter’s day. It was about time: Femke (15) paid a visit to Amsterdam for the first time of her life and it was years ago for Judith(16) and Marijke. (18) Not only that: before you leave the nest, you should at least have visited the National Museum. Since Marijke is leaving us in September, we just booked a spot, and off we went.
We thoroughly enjoyed the peace in the city of Amsterdam. The crowdedness of Amsterdam was one of the reasons we had been avoiding going there. But this unusual time of adjustments also has its advantages. No tourists this time.
We have made a choice from the range of everything there is to see and this blog is just an impression of this. Obviously pictures of what stood out for me and you may recognize that 😉
Department: Christian art in the Low Lands/ Netherlands/ Holland
Department: In and around the house.
It was splendid
So on your screen is quite a different experience, then wandering quietly through the quiet National Museum. We were tired and satisfied after seeing so much fine art! It made me think about how good it is for a person. It is not just any cultural outing. I try to capture what happens in words, but quiet enjoyment seems to fit better.
In september and oktober I am hosting a few Silent Retreats again. This day helped as inspiration by the preparations. Good to have some incubation time;-)
Warm greetings from Amsterdam, (finally!)
