white friend

Dear Sisters,

I do hope, S3, that your new friend managed to hold his drink. Hot tea can be risky for some.
Here, in Antwerp, all snow has melted.
The veil of cold that dropped itself upon us has lifted, and we are back to more recognisably Belgian bleary days of rain and even some warm, wintery sun.

I enjoyed the cold and my new Irish mittens. I dropped one in the snow and even then you can see the quality of the warm wool.
The raspberry coloured folding bicycle that is my new companion, combined with the train, takes me almost everywhere (although I'd put a cycling limit of one hour in terms of comfort); it is a true revolution in speed; I'd recommend it for everyone.

The cat (not pictured here) that is one of my companions has had his evening runaround and is now staring at me intently. Now and then he bows his head slightly, and closes his eyes a little. He likes to listen to the sound of my fingers typing on the keys, or so it seems. Every now and then he lifts his head, looks around, a bit to the left, then to the right, changing position slightly, only to return to immobility again. I have always suspected cats of being part of the fluxus movement.

I send you my love!

A new friend

Dear Sisters ,

Sunday woke up and all was covered in a fluffy white blanket.

Finsbury park , have never seen so many snowmen and giant snowballs being rolled
down hills , I even saw an igloo. So many sledges with bundles of kids on them.
It was a beautiful sight of a sea of white with blobs of happy colour.

And then a new friend appeared magically sitting on a bench.
I have invited him for a coffee next week , lets see if he shows up.
This could be the beginning of a great friendship.
By the way here is a little educational video of How to build an igloo,
Im learning so much in this amazing city, do you like my new winter coat ?
Lots of Love ,
Sister 3
