‘Oh-Oh’ It makes sense.

Sitting on my bench, patiently working on my eight years old laptop, I’m confortably between my left side unordered staple up  invitation cards (mail- addresses because of ongoing Art Auction-see and my Tablet next to me. On my right side some bills, past years agenda’s – worth for some informative stories to peek through for reviewing book (in Future). But to break the dullness of confort – all of a sudden my mind sit still while I picked up the ‘Nights Curacao’, also lying besides me. An informative tiny bulletin (had it some time there) and I peeked through while the front page covers famous  ‘World Heritage on Curacao’ attractive Architecture in vivid colors. I sighed at the page for a while which had astuned colors and continued randomly following pages and I caught myself stirring on one page.  It was a yellow and black exposured page titled ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.  Looking at the black inked picture of Pirate ship I wondered how making myself comfortable in a sense  But no worries making it a sense, stumbled on this picture made me remember a colored painting I justly had in my Photo Doc. But kindly with boats- still same entourage effect.

Haitian Artist '60 Oil on Canvas

Haitian Art from ’60’s

This image I was about to use creatively in a story ( not with Pirate ship) but mentioning the artist while I would diligently continue messaging my actual Announcing Piece of Art called’Integration’.(first one above)  Then wanted to navigate the viewers to my  for  on-going Bidding Auction.  So the abruptly caught up Pirate-ship painted in Black Ink in the Nights Curacao put my thoughts on a drive,  gave my impulse gas to continue my idea this instant and work on my Photo and Painting announcing. The boat painting is from a Haitian Artist in the 60’s. Never mind now taking off my mind from the Pirate.  Paging further through the Information Booklet I stumbled on Dolphins titled ‘Who kept the Dolphins out’. Wondered how real but curious it seemed I imagined they’re kind a hanging out somewhere else. But of course, again looking through the words, thoughts came around on visit again. This time on another Picture-Painting while in living actuallity sitting here.

Not with titled ‘ who’s coming for dinner’ but ‘Resurrected’ awareness through an appearing Purple kind a Dolphin in underwater scenery. At first the title was ‘ Being watched’ but actually in metaphysical sense this Dream Expression  has stronger sense. So this Dolphin caught an eye on a falling mask thrown deep inside from ashore, like finally free of all that had cluttered the mind  This creature spotted also a bracelet (yellow) hanging around piece a coral. A real dream long time ago and since 2004 outlined in Painting that kept blinking on Canvas. This sort of  Dolphin took the Bracelet ( gemstone Citrine) around its beak ( nice anatomy word is ‘rostrum’) and as I remembered brought it to me. Of course I woke up instantly. Firstly it didn’t make sense but I knew it was meant to continue with the Artist life and along with the Image impactantly eye-catchers at Exhibitions and looking at Cards made the image one of first items to favor. And now ready to go off bidding.  With this usefully prompt awareness from times to this particular day with ‘Who let the Dolphins out’  I also understood that this Dolphin Academy is active since 2002.  Amazingly reading the tiny lines, the sense is this. Dolphins are important guiding creatures and enormously friendly. They search your soul and make it a better place. Well by all means I hope it is. I’d enjoyed this precious encounter around  Creative Pictured outlet ‘Nights Curacao’ Booklet full of useful info’s  It took me to some encouraging and surprised adventure.  I wish it all well in future.



Searching for a flight to Suriname is difficult in summer months.  You will hear the sound ‘All Full’ across the bureau of the Travel agencies including Mao Asam travel agency in Curacao. Yes full, via Miami full, via Trinidad and Tobago full. ‘Let’s try this one- let’s try that’; so much patience! Until finally, hoping gor a call  ‘wait a minute’. There is One Hope. Finally got closer on ‘their line’ (stretched my neck) to one message exalted through the rest of messages above all Full Flight Companies. Then an announcement, without hesitating “The Fly All Ways Surinam Company starts new schedule on the 25th flying Surinam – Curacao/ Curacao- Surinam. Well, Book that than, I thought silently but impatiently. It was my luck one of those days. Who could resist. And this flight starts on my wish for  25th of June. That date is to be remembered. Starting off on this date, after checking in at the airport,  I checked out this new installed clean furniture and special interior secretly – I had no particular claim for the outside look either; was  as good as measurable standard usual size, one will trust upon. Getting on board, the passengers were being guided and seated, all procedures to make sure were intact to  understand ( ahah, uhuh, understandable)  After all hens on deck, precautions and taking off, then high on air, the relaxing moment started.  After us taking care of Head and Feet, we got surprised with colorful packages snacks and beverage. Now longing for and graceful waiting to be in Suriname, there I was flying high in the sly to get there.

A few weeks there having a great time and enjoying my weeks occupying with my Arts obligations and presenting my New release Prose Book in a come together, time had arrived  to fly again with Fly All Ways.  Too soon but true, want to be a little longer in Surinam.  But, time to go HOME now. Much to my surprise a big crowd were standing there, aligned to check in. Who are they, and in this familiar color?  Well, nothing more than youngsters and leaders from the Bonaire Karate Club. They’d visited Surinam for a 3 days Karate competition event. These Bonaire kids in their outfit got my blushing away, attention, catching their smiling faces, to keep asking.  I got so thrilled to know more and more details. Plus  they were on my flight.

Bonaire is my baby island-(you know, Curacao, Aruba and Bonaire !), so after getting more releasing news; their chilling story here in Surinam, I knew they would come up with some big surprise.  While standing in the queue, waiting to check in I came to know how many medals they ended up with and of course a GOLD CUP.

15 medals and One Gold Cup.  So Happy for the Group and Bonaire Karate Club


After running along waiving, I got first to meet in the long queue (most  Competitive groups on their way to Home this early Sunday morning) for passport checking before get to the cozy Waiting Hall.  Slight scaring off red sweaters and sneakers outfits from Trinidad were in front on me and brought my attention to ask again.


Some chit chat you know, of course what they were up to in Suriname. So, I said carefully. ‘I saw the Bonaire group, had some information, how much yours in medals and cups’. ‘More than 10 and One bigger Gold Cup, in total 7. And Second place’. Who is the number one, I asked? SURINAM. Oh Fantastic.  Well I answered quickly, you of course Second. ‘And Curacao Third and Bonaire 4th’ place.  So Trinidad and Tobago the big Second’. Huge! Awesome.

So very inspirational all together in swift of time, I wondered. I counted how I got inspired by the country Suriname in total  4 times coming here. Carifesta, the Literature Group encounter, Javansese Batik studies and Creole African design studies. Than organizational skills with Surinamese Art centers .  Plus totally enjoyed the heavy rain fall ecactly every other day and the language Sranan. So I promised I will get through this language at 5th encounter,

So on board a total quietness, every one caught up in their own world to total relaxing. Seemed all tired but satisfied. The flight was cool.        Disembarking, through passport control,  Oh Too late a snap!

Coming into the Hall with luggage, A crowd: SURPRISE. Yeah. THE Curacao winning group on the photo. Cups, Trofee and Medals in the hand. CONGRATULATIONS CURACAO. Photo Mine quickly. Ah, too late, but …..

The drag of endless trying out,
protect and maintain the rights of the child
in a constant violation with little conviction.

One shoved a vote to maintain the rights – beat off another representative in exile. Defended itself into other’s eyes by so filed a damage to the rights of that child.

With Law that protects — must we be in constant fear, an official representative act showing disrespect! Important leader exposing childish act! A hilarious kind of power, different color, and the child

endlessly waiting.
