The garden is glowing

with the dancing wicks 





It's in this garden

eight years ago

that I met a mouse

But this mouse

did not scurry from one end of my patch to another

but rather

from one side of the Atlantic

to this side of 


Dank goede vriend

for telling us the story 

of a Big Bear and a Little Mouse

for sparking the creation of 

Tea Rat and Rattus

for entertaining Bebe and all the other characters

of our improvisation.

We have fond memories of you.

Happy Birthday

fijne verjaardag lieve zuster.
