2nd of December 2021


Isn’t it wonderful how books can open your eyes and mind to a whole new world?

With the changing of the season, when temperatures are declining and sunlight seems so sparse, I have followed my urge to escape into some books. (Which you might have noticed from previous posts.)

The urge comes and goes, ebbs and flows, depending on the season, or how I am feeling.
When everything seems just a little too harsh, a little too sharp, delving into another world, sometimes helps me to breathe a little easier and a little deeper. It sort of seems like I put myself in some sort of time-out. Almost like I’m recharging my inner world so I can cope better with the outside one.

It is also a balancing act.
Some days or weeks I would rather just stay inside a fictional world than have to cope with reality.

And that is where I’m at for the last couple of days. Thinking, feeling and trying to put my thoughts in this post, has made me come to this realization. A lot of words have come up this screen and have been erased…
The most important part however, is that I have managed to shed some light in the murky waters. I recognize where I was headed. And It is not where I want to end up.

That is all the ‘feely-things’ for now…

All my best,


1st of December 2021


I’m still reeling after I have read 4 books of the ‘Real Wolves Bite’-series.
First of all… I know myself… I shouldn’t have started the series without verifying if the series was complete… (It wasn’t!)
Second, I started reading and I got pulled in by sweet scents, whispers, a ghost of touch here and there…
And just when you think, yes, this is it…
You get scratched, bitten and ripped open while the fantasy universe is laughing at you.
It was very well written, and I got sucked into the world, but oh boy does the main character attract all sorts of things.
After reading the 4th book and the cliffhanger, I was stunned. (Eventhough I kinda felt it coming.)
It feels like hope just gets stripped away, every single time. And that hurts, just a little tiny bit.
So I gave the 1st book 5 stars… And the others received 4, just because my heart was still bleeding.

I have been thinking about doing something daily for december. And there are lots of challenges available, but none that really seem to call my name or feel right to me.
It started a whole other conversation in my head about feelings. And how I so like to avoid them. So maybe ‘Feeling’ will be my daily challenge for this month, as in describing what I’m actually feeling.
Which already started while reading the above mentioned series.
From hope, to fear, to hopelessness. And irritation and anger towards the main character to stand up more for herself. (Sometimes I just wanted to grab her and smack some sense into her.)

Getting in touch with my feelings is going to be extremely challenging for me. But I am going to try!

I hope you have a wonderful day/evening and I’ll see you tomorrow…

All my best,


PS: Daxon is mine!

Last weekend of November 2021


Only 2 more days left in November and then it is the last month of the year!

This weekend I actually managed to pull out some paints and coloring pencils and the result you can see here.
Nothing too complicated: I used an HB graphite pencil, my Arteza Gouache and my Arteza Colored pencils.
I followed someone else’s prompts and colours but did it in such a way, that it was doable for me concerning time and clean up.
It gave me a little boost inside, to know that my creativity is still in me… even if it is just a small whisper.

On Sunday I mostly rested because on Saturday evening I got sucked into the world of ‘Beautiful Beasts Academy’-series by Mila Young and Kim Faulks. It is a Young Adult Paranormal series, which at some point turns into more of a New Adult Paranormal. (Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Reverse Harem, Dark Taboo, etc, are my favourite books to read… don’t tell anyone!)
My problem is: I can’t just stop in the middle of a book… or even in the middle of a series if it concerns the same main characters… It is  impossible! I Need To Know What Happens Next! It feels like my own life depends on it. (Eventhough it really doesn’t.)
Overall I gave the series 4 stars out of 5.

Today I’m still processing.
I did find my Word for 2022, which will be revealed… at a later date.
And some energy was found, to clean up some things in my “safe nest”. (Which is basically just my apartment.)

I hope you had a lovely weekend. Maybe with some action, some relaxation and some inspiration?

All my best,
