Our visit to Low Parkamoor (Coniston Lake, Lake District) for about a month this summer, brought it all together: themes as House & Home, feel well just where you are, find poetry in boring neighbourhoods and dark livingrooms (although our spot up the hill was sublime, even some Coniston-streets down under where typical british grey to me). But refinding me in nature plus ‘in a slower way of living’ it just wasn’t a holiday, it was something else and much better.
It gave me the opportunity to see that I know what I am writing about. I mean: I really found Man’s chair, with his paper laying around and my handwriting-nature. (Refering to ‘De Vrouw breekt de buurt’ – ‘Woman breakes neighbourhood’, you can find it in de menu…).
So to try and find breaking poetry in ‘Homeley’ spots, I just have to change spots. And never forget that I come from ‘the boring neighbourhoods of small minds’ & great thinking 🙂
