In Holland

Another intense and nourishing time
at the first European ALIA conference
(Authentic Leadership in Action). 

Before flying home I touch the paper - 
catching some traces and patterns of this land - 
a different continent and perspective . . .

Extraordinary, Barbara. You captured the linear dark and light there, and I love the patience and liveliness of the man and dog figures. Go back again in April to see the moist gray/brown earth and the ribbons of color of tulip fields. But for now the dream moves on. Love it. Welcome back!

Barbara, love it, love it, love it.
You never seize to amaze me how skillfully you mange to capture the spirit of the place, with grace, fluidity and truth, yet you see the hidden messages, you read between the lines.
This is the Holland i remember.
