Shifting Towards The Unknown

The Flowtops are at a place where lots of things are shifting.

For one, we are in the midst of tidying up the house to finally put it on the market. We do not expect a quick sale and have no idea where we will end up next. We’re flexible in that we don’t care where we live, as long as it is near a city with a train station and decent schooling (preferably a Waldorf school). Our notion of our new home is slowly shifting. Given our limited budget, we’ll probably end up in a small dilapidated cottage with a big garden, where there is plenty of room to build a studio and a workshop. It’ll be in the vicinity of Leeuwarden, Groningen or Assen, we think. And we’ll need to do a lot of downsizing.

Our creative flow is shifting as well. I’ve done a few art pieces with Top3 and Top4 (the scary skeleton above is adapted from an earlier drawing by Top3), and I really like that type of work, so I think I will explore co-creation further. They both have wonderful imagination and an eye for detail.

  1. oef, spannend. Hier in de buurt geen Waldorffschool in de aanbieding. Ook geen grote stad. Maar de rest wel ;o)

    Ben benieuwd waar jullie terechtkomen. Succes!

  2. Love the co-creating. I pray that you will find a 'good' house for you that you can create into a wonderful home.
    My dream is to have a studio of my own–that's one reason why I want some land.
    I think we will go check out a home on an acre of land sometime next week. It's been reduced in price twice now. I think it will need work inside as well as some obvious outside, but my husband was a builder, so he can do that, esp. since he doesn't have a 9-5 daily job. (He's still consulting from home.)
    After being in this tiny home, I can tell you that you can make anything work if you set your mind to it. :>)

  3. Oh, I will also pray that your home sells at a good price and in good time. Ours sold in a terrible market, so it's possible.

Your thoughts are welcome. Together, let's be wise!
