on longing and consolation — watou is a little village somewhere on the border between belgium and france, every year there’s an art festival that touches me to the core every single time.. this probably doesn’t need a lot of words, just check out the link in my bio for the full video and stand still for a moment to see that longing and consolation can be a beautiful thing.. @kunstenfestivalwatou ❤️
My monotype by my father's poem
'Lullaby for Laura in Gigaro': One million fish are keeping still and thereby sleeps the sea. May you not have a thousand thoughts, and sleep under them. (I had them for you. And different kinds of grief, they were not worth it.)
And may you awaken by bird twittering.

En wij op @kunstenfestivalwatou deel 1: 2 workshops over troost met kinderen. Zaterdag maakten we troostzakdoeken om verdriet op te eten en zondag drukten ze hun eigen postkaartje om iemand mee te troosten 💙 #kunstenfestivalwatou
