“And no she did not apologize for giving her blood to the earth”Scarlet Crow in Scarlet Moon Here is a small collection of pictures, which resonate a lot with me right now. The plants help to see the beauty of nature, of growth, of the reproductive cycles, of being female and bearing everything in us. Spring is booming so you can see it everywhere; the gentle reminders showing that life is beautiful. I strive to […]

Not a food blog

Today I want to reach out to those who came here because they thought Munching on a Dream was a food blog. It is really more than that! I like food and I have posted many food related posts. Nevertheless, I do not consider this blog as a food blog! Since the beginning, which is already 2.5 years ago, helping and inspiring people to shift to a (more) vegan diet has been one of my […]

In this moment I am excited! I am grateful for and thrilled about the opportunities in life. We are lucky to experience as we do. We get to go out in the world, to explore. Let’s make the most of it and do it together!

Hi peepz, How are you doing? 🙂 I am going through some rather difficult circumstances these days. I do regard them as learning opportunities, nevertheless I’m still having the regular ups and downs. But that’s how it goes! Unless you truly decide to quit suffering and act on it. The whole practice is to accept what is and don’t cling to anything, to have a good relationship with what is in this moment. Then you’ll […]

It’s not easy to deliver people the bad news, especially if they know it’s there and don’t want to hear it. People do this thing called strategic ignorance, in which they deliberately ignore all information they wish didn’t exist, so they can tell themselves that all is fine. There’s no problem there, as long as I can pretend there isn’t. This strategic ignorance is also being used by people to deny the problems that arise […]

“He knows not where he’s going For the ocean will decide – It’s not the DESTINATION… … It’s the glory of THE RIDE” For everyone who doesn’t know where they are going: be more like zen dog. Having a goal can surely help you, but most important is being happy in this very moment. This moment is all there will ever be. So let us enjoy the ride while it lasts, instead of focussing only […]

Reflection time

Moving is exciting and exhausting. I try hard to stay graceful and equanimous, though I get discouraged by the fact that we have to do without internet and physical mail. I want to get my shit organised but the circumstances make it really difficult. On the other hand, being disconnected from the outside world sure has it’s pros and cons. This years’ Christmas family reunions were nice and crowded, so now we can happily redraw […]

Moving up and down

Dear you, I would like to share with you how I feel. I feel stressed, tired and vulnerable. I’m in a transition period, and hopefully for the better. I try to get more organised and take better care of myself, but at the moment I don’t really succeed. I’ve been living in student houses for six years now and I am happy to be moving on soon. Everything feels so intense now that it surprises […]
