Carpe Diem

We had a telephone call last night that underlined the importance of carpe diem – seizing the day and living life while you can. The daughter of a friend of ours rang to give us the news that Maaike had died of a heart attack while on holiday visiting relatives in Portugal. She was only 52. She and her family visited us just over five weeks ago. She was full of life then, and now she’s gone. She is missed.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
