..That joke with the priest that said "do as I say, not as I do"?
(Wiktionary says: This order first appeared in John Selden's Table-Talk (c. 1654): "Preachers say, 'Do as I say, not as I do.'")
I watch V, he is learning, every second of his life.
He is learning how this world works, how his body works, how interaction works.
Does he learn from what I say?
A bit, when I insist, I explain and I plead.
But the biggest part from his learning he does by watching me.
He learns from what I do.
I believe we are all like this naturally - but we the grown-ups seem to have learned to only (mostly) believe the words and not the actions of people around us.
In marketing school I even learned that people believe it more if they see something written - so I'd better write all kinds of convincing "facts" (read: lies) on my website - in order for people to buy what I sell..
Of course, this opens the door for everybody to write whatever they think fit - and declare it "truth"..
Raw Food brings the energy of the sun in your body: a beautiful article about Shining Mama in a national Dutch newspaper (Metro)
It was wonderful to have Ellen Mannens and Floris Sheplitz visiting me one Friday afternoon two weeks ago.
It was more than "gezellig", how the Dutch say it, it was so nice that we forgot the time and got lost in stories.. (not only mine!) :-)
..Until I asked how much time we have left and Floris said, uhm, we have one more half hour of light to make the pictures so you'd better hurry up with that salad :-)
Thank you, Ellen and Floris!
The pictures are very beautiful - and masterful, if you'd know that V was in absolutely no mood for pictures!.
Ellen Mannens managed to magically turn my looooong innuendo story into a beautifully written concise article.
A translation in English of her Dutch words is of course in order so here it goes (it is in some places a "free" translation as I have added a few explanatory things):
