This is what #summer looks like in #amsterdam. It's #july and you'd expect warmth and plenty of sunshine, the past few weeks have been cloudy, rainy and a bit stormy. (SWIPE to see how cloudy) If you are planning a #visit to Amsterdam during this time, a jacket, raincoat and umbrella will be very handy.

Do you know what an Amsterdammertje is?
.
No, I don't mean a 250cl glass of beer (also called Amsterdammertje).
.
It's the pole with the three crosses on it. Originally, they were canons put upside down into the ground to prevent carriages from bumping into the facades of the buildings. The oldest 'Amsterdammertjes' can be found at the Brouwersgracht.

I walk past this house several times a week, at various times of the day. I love how the tiles glisten in the warmth of the sun early evening. I love how dark and mysterious the bricks look like when it’s grey and gloomy. I love imagining what secrets this building hides and I have a chance to pause in front of it and look at it when I get a vegan ice cream from the shop next door. People living here have a view on the water from their windows and there is no house opposite, from which one could glance into the first floor’s rooms. I know that if I lived here I would definitely eat breakfasts and/or dinners on the balcony.

I overheard two young women, saying goodbyes before cycling each in a different direction: “We should talk more. But we shouldn’t talk so much from the mind, but from the heart”. That’s a pretty good advice. I am tired of the predictability of certain conversations, their mendacity. People talk about what they did, what they are doing, what they are planning to do. They share opinions, impressions, observations, but are reluctant to share feelings. There is no heart in that. I miss hearing hearts speaking.

Beautiful summer day. On my way home from work, pausing to photograph this beautiful city, between a visit to a record store and to my dental clinic, to say “hello” to my wonderful dentist and make an appointment for a check-up. Every cycling commute is a pleasure. 💙

“I would like to describe the simplest emotion
joy or sadness
but not as others do
reaching for shafts of rain or sun

I would like to describe a light
which is being born in me
but I know it does not resemble
any star
for it is not so bright
not so pure
and is uncertain

I would like to describe courage
without dragging behind me a dusty lion
and also anxiety
without shaking a glass full of water

to put it another way
I would give all metaphors
in return for one word
drawn out of my breast like a rib
for one word
contained within the boundaries
of my skin

but apparently this is not possible

and just to say—I love
I run around like mad
picking up handfuls of birds
and my tenderness
which after all is not made of water
asks the water for a face

and anger
different from fire
borrows from it
a loquacious tongue

so is blurred
so is blurred
in me
what white-haired gentlemen
separated once and for all
and said
this is the subject
and this is the object

we fall asleep
with one hand under our head
and with the other in a mound of planets

our feet abandon us
and taste the earth
with their tiny roots
which next morning
we tear out painfully”

On my way home from work. Amidst the chaos and noise of Amsterdam, in the centre of the city, there are still plenty of tranquil wee squares and corners. Tourists don’t give them a second glance, but I find these nooks charming, and the fact that one can still have a chat with a neighbour or a friend outside of their own home, unperturbed by noisy tourists, very reassuring.

The café Libertine used to be called Proust, the sign written in the same font. I adore this square, with an old church dominating it and with fresh produce, antiques and bric-a-brac market on the weekends.

“...sometimes we ask ourselves why happiness took so long to arrive, why it didn't come sooner, but appears suddenly, as now, when we've given up hope of it ever arriving, it's likely then that we won't know what to do, and rather than it being a question of choosing between laughter and tears, we will be filled by a secret anxiety to which we might not know how to respond at all.”

Cycling to the gym from work today I passed by this house and saw a woman, surrounded by piles of books, working at her big, wooden, dining table, with the door/window open to the street. It reminded me of all the afternoons I spent on the balconies of my childhood. The balcony of our apartment in Warsaw’s Ochota, third floor, on which, on warm May and June afternoons, I would laugh out loud reading “Le Petit Nicolas” (in superb Polish translation) until it got too dark to see the letters properly. The balcony of my grandparents’ home, on which my mum would study for her Matura (final high school exam) about 16 years before I, completely unseen from downstairs thanks to thick grapevines holding the balcony in a tight embrace, pored over girlie novels by Lucy Maud Montgomery and tomboyish adventures described so appealingly by Polish authors Hanna Ożogowska or Edward Niziurski. I have never enjoyed being completely exposed to the sun; I have always sought the comfort of shadows. In the weather like we have in Amsterdam these days my mind wanders to all those idle hours, with summer holidays around the corner and the anticipation of nearly three months filled with whatever I wanted (mainly reading, eating copious amounts of fruit and travelling).

„Is it true that human beings are so fundamentally cruel? Is the experience of cruelty the only thing we share as a species? Is the dignity that we cling to nothing but self-delusion, masking from ourselves this single truth: that each one of us is capable of being reduced to an insect, a ravening beast, a lump of meat? To be degraded, damaged, slaughtered - is this the essential fate of humankind, one which history has confirmed as inevitable?”

Public space in Amsterdam in open for interpretation. Claiming parts of the pavement as yours is a norm. Unfortunately when it comes to cleaning of the pavement then no one feels any responsibility. In Tokyo every morning there are hundreds of thousands of people sweeping, cleaning with wipes and brushes, watering pavements and streets - in front of their houses, shops, restaurants, etc. It’s a very comforting sight. You don’t see any rubbish on Tokyo’s streets, despite the almost complete lack of rubbish bins. Here in Amsterdam I don’t see people cleaning outdoor areas. I see rubbish bins everywhere and yet there is rubbish on the streets. No one seems to care and what’s worse - many people think that Amsterdam’s streets are clean, which baffles me.

Even if one lives in a social housing (like this one here, around the corner from my house) there is so much that can be done to make an ugly building look nice, which doesn’t cost a lot. Greenery and lush wisteria help, don’t they? 💜
