What gives you hope?

That depends on the situation.
But in general terms: when I feel or see opportunities to be happy in the future.
That happiness isn't only meant for myself, but also for others.
So seeing peace for some countries in the near future might have no meaning for my own life, but it makes me feel hopefull for the happiness for others.

How often do you get your haircut?
Describe your worst haircut.

I cut my own hair.
So I have no scheduled times.
Right now my hair is rather short, and that needs more attention than a bit longer hair.

I don't have a worst haircut, but I do remember a worst hairdye. LOL!
When I worked in the hospital I painted my hair on a saturday evening.
Something must have been wrong with the stuff, because I ended up bright orange.
Don't tell me it was copper, it was bright orange.

Whatever I did to get it out....nothing helped.
And there was no shop open to get a darker colour.

I looked awful, but still had to go to work.

Well, it was clear that people didn't feel helped during the therapeutical sessions because of the colour of my hair. LOL!

What's your most treasured piece of jewelry? Why?

I don't have a special piece.
I love jewelry, and it doesn't matter if it's expensive or a piece of vintage.
It needs to have something special to see... for me.

Thinking of it, I do have a special piece.
An earring from india, just one, given by a dear friend lots of years ago.
The friend was like a brother to me.

Because I has a well described idea of what friends are... people who serve his good feelings and have no comments on him at all, we lost contact.
He kicked me out of his life, because I stood up for his son when he was too egoistic to see the feelings of his son.

The little boy was 5 then. Now he's almost an adult.
I still feel it's a pity that we had no chance at all to keep in contact.
Whenever I'm in Amsterdam I still look around to see his familiar face...
