It took me several days to adapt myself to this new stage of doing nothing but possible creating, but then I began to write what I intended to write: a novel. I did write, partly edited old materials that I brought. Also, as intermission and as mainly I consider myself as a poet, I organize my next volume of poems…(!) which made me very happy as well. I liked the interval being silence in the garden, sitting and viewing the view, listening to the birds and just gazing, daydreaming. I took a lot of pictures with my camera, which, I am sure, will continue to inspire me. The big effect of creating here, I think, is being absolutely by yourself, meaning you don’t have to consider anybody else in your creation. It is especially important for a woman, that her nature obliged her to consider anybody that involved in her life: children, lover, husband, friends. Here I dedicated myself to myself! without second thought about cooking, eating, cleaning, making arrangements. Thanks for all this.
