I like birds

I like birds. Great tits especially. I know it sounds weird in English, but in Dutch they are called ‘Koolmeesjes’. I have always loved this bird since I was a little kid. They always stood out from the other birds, they made me smile and just happy. So I decided a couple of years ago I needed a tattoo of one. And I’m still super happy I got one! Before I got one I looked up what the represented and I found this: Truth, reality, acrobatics, cheerful, sunny and carefree. A lot of things I value a lot and some I wish I was (carefree).

I listened to Eels’ ‘I like birds’ a few days ago, that I used to listen to all the time, every day, and again, remember from our holidays with the fam. And it made me so happy again, I just had to dance to it. It’s spring, it’s sunny out (some days), the birds are singing and nature is beautiful. So once in a while, turn up the volume and dance, dance like no one is watching.
