I'm often - not always - busy and fascinated observing the world surrounding me. Earlier, quite a long time ago, as a little girl, I went with my parents every year on vacation to Austria.. In the train - 'the hill express "I was glued to the window while 'the big beautiful world" tied the score. I needed to see absolutely everything ..
In a different way.. I'm still glued to the window today! While watching, noticing, listening, thinking, dreaming and - or fantasizing I might find the inspiration resulting in Poetical Visuals.

For me, the moment when someone reads my poetry is a beautiful moment, because my words 'land' on the eye and the hinterland of the reader. While reading the reader adopts "a poem", and is having his or her own personal experience. My background or inspiration is playing a subordinate role.
When I write about a blue sky, you'll see your blue - not mine. However, you're watching your blue sky while reading about mine... that's a gift... a writer's gift and a reader's gift. I believe this is something poetry should be about, also! (*)

A little bit about my background: I also r e a l l y enjoy spending quality-time as a wife( since almost 40 years, together with my husband who is urban development draftsman) , mother ( of two sons - both (very soon to be) bachelors @ multi media design), housewife, friend, dog owner & lover, pond&garden-lover, nature-lover, and photographer. Before, I worked a saleswoman, in the music department of a warehouse, selling the, now antique but still beautiful, black vinyl disks. Subsequently, I started as a cashier, @ a gas station, becoming later on manager of three gas stations (and often helping out the car mechanics).

Until last year, I was available as a computer- and software 'helpdesk'-person, for friends and acquaintances (of friends) On request, I also, built (desktop)computers. However, technology is evolving so quickly, staying up to date, absolutely a necessity, simply takes too much time. Furthermore, the writing cannot be a secondary activity also.

Making a choice became a need.
I have chosen to write. I want to improve my writing skills further! It is something I really enjoy.(When I was (much) younger my dream was a little garden house, with a desk and a type-writer, and me inside writing.........) Nowadays - I display on this website what 'flows' out of my fountain pens when I am in my flow............
Well - I guess I've found my home with a (kind of) garden house and garden............. It's here - on the web. You're my highly appreciated visitor and very welcome for a stroll while browsing through the pages. Earlier on I was the writing half of Poetic Pictures duo Ellie Daphne (van Stralen). I published my poems, until, December 2013, using that 'nom de plume'.

I am also putting my poetry on display on my own website - as well as my Poetical Visuals.
