Here's a collection of portraits and short stories from people I met on my trips around the world. Thank you for tuning in and see you soon, bye bye!

I have learned that sometimes it is good to let go and I no longer have a feud over things from my past.

Charlois, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Autumn 2020.

I have an obsession with history, especially World War II. There are days and dates from the past that I know a lot about.

And you know what? As for past and history … I recently noticed that everything about my personal past doesn’t have that much of an emotional impact on me anymore.

I think that’s my big achievement.

Because I see so many people very angry about things in the world. They feel that a lot is being done with them personally. And it got me thinking about when I was younger, when I also shared the same feelings. I think I had the same outlook on life.

I understand that sometimes things are going the way they are, the world is not going the way you would like, and sometimes people don’t understand you and that’s okay. I don’t feel like anything is being done to me personally.

As long as you can accept what life is like at the moment. I no longer want to put myself in a situation where I hold on purely out of revenge. Or for the idea of ‘​​perishing for the good’.

I have learned that sometimes it is good to let go and I no longer have a feud over things from my past.

Because I’m always so busy with things that have happened in history. ‘Today on this date this and this happened’ or ‘It has been so many days or so many years since …’

But I’m never really busy with the things I’ve accomplished today. Perhaps I should do that more often. Look back on things in a positive way, to see where I already am.
