Welcome to my weblog! I’m a classical singer from The Netherlands, who also works as a technical writer… a rare combination, perhaps, but I like it! I also love knitting, photography, drawing, painting, origami, writing, spinning, designing and reading. Yep, I’m one of those people who are interested in almost everything (and cannot choose one passion). I love to make things, both with my hands and with my brain. On this weblog I write about all my interests, some more than others.
I’m quite a nerd, love sci-fi & fantasy, computers and gadgets, tweaking stuff and I am a bit of a trekkie. I love meeting my friends and family, but I also covet alone time as I’m strongly introverted. I love the thrill of learning, of discovery, and achieve the most when I am following my own flow without worrying about deadlines and money.
I have a weak spot for anything classical, being it music, history or dresses. I love Latin and (Roman and Greek) mythology. Languages intrigue me, and I’m always looking for similarities and differences between them. I’d love to do research in that field! I’m on Duolingo, learning a couple of languages, just out of curiosity. I have a special place for anything British, have been to the UK a couple of times, but would like to see more of the country.
As I’m quite a fanatical knitter, I can of course be found on Ravelry, also with the username Meilindis. Over there, I founded two very nice Dutch groups: the Nederlandse Karma Swap and the Wolkookpot. You can also purchase my knitting patterns there.
