I love the cold weather!

Suddenly temperatures dropped 10 degrees tonight after the heatwave of the past days. It felt as if an extremely heavy hot blanket that had been thrown over my house got removed and my world got bigger again all of a sudden. Finally able to breathe again! I love this!

Yup, I am one of those crazy people who love the rain and cold. I do like sunny days ofcourse, but certainly not above 25 degrees. Above that temperature I can’t exercise or think well and it really works on my mood, no matter how sunny the beaches look. I spent a lot of time in the sea the past days to cool down. It’s amazing to have the sea nearby!

The interesting part was that the hot weather had me thinking about the other places with a bit more nature where I could see myself living in the future. I really felt like escaping now and then. I had considered the South of Holland before since my ancestors are from there and I like the region but there it’s even 5 degrees warmer (!). Or the equally land locked East of Holland? I am pretty negative about the effects of climate change so I think we should brace ourselves for even hotter weather in the future. Or my favourite cool country: Ireland!

I think it’s interesting why some people love the cold and others love the hot. Does it have to do with body posture, where you’re from, what you’re used to or just a personal preference?  Any other lovers of rain and cold out there? In which places could you see yourself live ideally just looking at climate? Summer all year? Do you worry about the future effects of climate change?

Dreams and animals…

When I was a little kid, there was always one item on my birthday wish list: a Shetland pony. I’ve always loved animals: domestic pets but preferably the bigger ones, like donkey’s, horses and deer. I wanted to become a veterinarian in primary school. Maybe I should have!

Every autumn I love to go deer spotting in the woods in the East during the deer rut. And here in the dunes in my backyard I love watching the wild Galloway highland cattle.  I’ve even seen the birth of one of the baby cows! Last spring I went for a day hike with a donkey and I’m planning to do that again this summer. Connecting with our fellow friends is so grounding and healing to me. Must be my Sagittarius star sign!

One day I hope to live on a farm again where I can offer music, vocal coaching, meditation, inspiration workshops and….walks and coaching with animals! I even dreamt a very beautiful name for it already!

What are your dreams?
