Haarlem at night–

img_1516 img_1517 img_1607 img_1606MMM!  So ‘gezellig’ (cozy) to walk the streets of Haarlem, The Netherlands at night. . .the low-lying clouds move quickly overhead dropping rain one second, hail the next, and then nothing the third–the weather here is DYNAMIC, baby…just a few miles inland from the North Sea.  The wet streets glimmer and shimmer and remind me that I am not a good swimmer–I hope the canals keep the flood waters away for yet another evening.

The steeple of the Great Church in the center of town shines shinily. . .pointing upward to the heavens to let the sheep know that all is well…someone is watching over them, at least they hope this is the case.  And in the cold dampness of the Great Market Square there is greenery urging us to forge on for another day, another night. . .we agree to do so.  We have no other choice. . .we do, but we forge on anyway.

Wandering the streets of thousand-year-old cities and towns is magical. . .scintillating. . .captivating. . .soothing.  So many have come here before us, so many will come after us. . .all we have to do is enjoy this moment NOW. . .the universe will take care of the rest.

I send you contemplative vibes from nighttime Haarlem here in The Netherlands. . .feel them. . .they are good for your appetite.
