Love - Illustration - Film - Performance Art
Hi all my name is Deborah, I am 31 years old and live in Haarlem which is a small city, next to Amsterdam in The Netherlands.
I work for a permaculture organisation called: “Gezonde Gronden”. Which would be “Healthy Grounds” in English.
I work at the shop, sell seeds and products, provide information about our organisation or permaculture in general. I sometimes help with permaculture courses and also work as their multi media person. Which basically means that my job includes anything regarding illustration, photography, film, editing etc.
So what’s this photoblog all about?
Today I saw a bunny yawn, it’s the small things that make life beautiful. It made me smile and I felt refreshed, awake, and alive; it has been quite the few couple of weeks watching people struggle with life as it is, like bitter victims of circumstance.
I am the eternal optimist, which doesn’t mean I don’t get down. Most of my plans turn to shit, I am extremely sensitive to everything within and around me, I struggle with an eating disorder, I have precognitive dreams, know stuff I shouldn’t know and have a hard time saying no to people.
I have always been scared I am going to end up uninspired and bitter-angry with the world. But watching that bunny yawn, made me realize that all those corny phrases you find in Eckhart Tolle books, and on bathroom tiles, or that leave your grandmother’s mouth are right… Shocker! You are the creator of your own reality. You always have a choice. Although I have heard these phrases my entire life and I thought understood what they meant, I am now kinda starting to understand their meaning. All by watching that damn bunny yawn. Forget meditation folks, just look around and observe all the beautiful things in your close surroundings. Everywhere you go there will be Hidden Treasures for you to find, parts of your surroundings you have never explored.
And I will be uploading my findings right here.
