It’s true. My mind is constantly creating narratives of everything I see and hear. And while some might consider that as a sign of insanity (which I surely won’t deny), it makes the world a more fun place for me. I like to believe in the impossible. I like to believe that things don’t have to be the way they are.
That’s why I write my columns. I am critical of our world because I know we can do better. And of course you don’t have to agree with me. I already appreciate you taking the time to read these columns. Because when you’re willing to listen, you might be willing to talk. And that’s the first step to making a change.
You’ll also find poetry and words of wisdom in this wonderland. As an ex-literature student, I have a profound love for the beauty of the written word. At times, I even find the courage to put pen to paper myself. Good writers can express things we all feel and recognize but cannot put into words. And that to me is a wonder.
PS: I know what you’re thinking: “Why is everything on this website in English, except the columns?” That’s because they were specifically written for a Belgian magazine. However, as a literary language, I prefer English. You can blame Shakespeare for that.
