My phone vibrated 5 minutes ago:
It was an emergency alert from the Dutch government.
It started with Portuguese - Alerta de emergencia ( my phone might still think I'm in Portugal, a month after my departure), then Dutch - informing us to follow the instructions of the government, to keep our distance ( 1.5 meter ), to not go out if we're sick or having a cold. To protect ourselves and the people around us. Together against Corona.
Things are starting to get serious in here and the freedom loving creative, the somewhat anarchist rebel in me is struggling. I know I'm not the only one.
I had to move places yesterday. Hopped on a train from Utrecht ( the 4th largest city of The Netherlands ) to Eindhoven ( apparently, the 5th largest town ).
I was accompanied to the train station by a new friend ( who I dated in times of Corona ) - we drank a coffee and had some gluten free cake ( I must say that I still prefer cake with gluten, unhealthier or not ) and than bid our farewells ( without touching ).
The irony! I finally started dating again and then Corona / Covid19 happened. Now I keep receiving messages of women who are interested in me but we are not even allowed to meet up, let alone to touch each other.
Anyhow, I just wanted to share a couple of minutes of the Dutch landscape, passing by, seen from a train window - kind of ZEN, like the fizzy drink video that I shared yesterday.
Yesterday afternoon, I arrived in the place where I will spend the next couple of weeks, perhaps even months. I've got an entire house ( 3 floors ) to myself, thanks to very friendly acquaintances. I'm grateful for this opportunity.
I plan to stay as social as possible ( from a distance ) with everybody I know and care about. And as long as the government lets me, I will keep going outside to stay fit and sane.
Expect me to start doing my best creative work now ( time to write these books about that mindful dinosaur ) and to start rocking on the new blockchain!
Much love ( from a distance ),
