We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~Mother Teresa

the keukenhof in lisse. it is easily the most un-macho place on the entire planet and i absolutely adore it. the moment i enter the park, i am encapsulated by the perfume of nature. it is intoxicating and lovely. you guys know i hardly use that word at all. but that is really what it really is. lovely. just lovely.

i have moved from travel writing professionally for some time but i need, absolutely need to shout out about this place. could this be the catalyst that brings me back into that media world? who knows? but if the initiation is by this magnificent fragrance oozed by this park then i am in, man, i am so in.

this place really is nothing shot of magical. i want to go there again and again if not for the fact that it takes me two busses to get here, passing through quite a number of towns along the way. and the crowd. oh my god, thousands by the bus fulls. but you know, people find their space ad did i and after awhile, one is able to just take one’s time and luxuriously stroll through the park. oh, and the park opens for only like nine weeks a year. like a true diva it is, naturally.
