Another one of my recent challenges, Klimbos 17 meters height. My first try. Unexpectedly, I found a very healing method. My 10 years daughter visited Klimbos with another adult a few weeks ago. Because that person not dare to take a route higher than 7 meters. Without the company of an adult, my daughter cannot try other routes higher than seven meters. When she came home, she was a little disappointed. At that moment, I thought of challenging myself for her. We went back there on the last day of her summer holiday. She was actually a little hesitant when she chose the 17 meter height. In order to encourage her this time, I told her “It must be fun. Let’s go together!” In the end, I tried the 17-meter height journey and it felt great. After the last section of the slide, I asked her “how do you feel?” She said “Mama, I am proud of you!” I can’t help but feel so moved that tears are rolling in my eyes. This is the most special activity I have done with her together in the past 23 months. I am sure she will remember the experience of this special day.
Since the age of 3, Isabel likes to play with scarves creatively. Sometimes she can play with two or three scarves for an hour or two by herself. When she was 7 years old, one day I suddenly found her one moment when she focus on painting with full of style. I quietly picked up the camera and whispered to her. She looked back with a very calm and peaceful expression. I pressed the camera shutter without hesitation, and then couldn’t help but laugh. This independent image design is truly amazing, combining the essence of Vermeer’s different paintings. Before she was three years old, a poster of “A Lady Writing a Letter” was hung in my living room. Before she was seven years old, she had been to the Mauritius Huis three times and had seen “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. It is estimated that her creative inspiration comes from early memories.
Cultivation and good taste require time and energy to cultivate. And many times you do not see big plans and large-scale. We unknowingly infiltrate our children with valuable information for a long time. And we need to take action anytime and anywhere. Don’t expect short-term impact, but the end result is usually surprising. But you need to have one pair of observant eyes. Otherwise you will miss many subtle, seemingly random movements and works. The so-called value is whether you are worth it.
一和君从3岁时就喜欢用围巾做文章，有时候一个人在那里用两三条围巾能玩耍一两个小时。在她7岁时，有一日突然发现她富有造型的专注画画。我悄悄拿起相机轻呼她一声，她暮然回眸，好平和静谧的表情。一秒内按下快门，然后就忍不住笑起来了。这个独立形象设计真是绝了，综合了Vermeer不同画作的精髓。在她三岁前，我家客厅中挂了一幅《写信少女A Lady Writing a Letter》的Poster。七岁前她去过三次Mauritius Huis博物馆，见过《戴珍珠耳环的少女Girl with a Pearl Earring》。估计她的创作灵感来源于早年的记忆。

The tradition in China is that birthday girl/boy has to eat noodles on her/his birthday. Noodles are called “longevity noodles”. “Longevity noodles” are long and thin noodles that represent the longevity of the birthday girl/boy. In China, eating longevity noodles has a history of more than one thousand years. The main reason is that “noodes (面mian)” is similar to “life（命ming）” in pronunciation. And long noodles means long life. Wish me a healthy and happy long life！

This year is a strange year. All activities have stopped since March. Koninklijke Industrieele Groote Club is normally a socially active place for the members. It has suddenly disappeared from my calendar. Every May in Koniklijke IGC have traditional dinner parties, such as herring night and white asparagus dinner. It seems that this year can only be self-reliant. Last weekend, my friend from the south came to visit me and brought fresh white asparagus. So, I put on my apron and doing the cooking. Finally I enjoy my own Slow Food.
