Some random info about me

I’m a cat person.

I’m also an introvert and an HSP.
Life on this crazy-fast-noisy world takes A LOT of energy. And the older I get, the more ‘alone time’ I seem to require …

I was diagnosed with ASD at the age of 47.

I LOVE books. I read sci-fi and fantasy, adventure stories, books about science and music, and an occasional detective story.
My all time favorite books are : “Torenhoog en mijlen breed” and its successor “Ogen van tijgers”, both by Tonke Dragt, and the trilogy “Geef me de ruimte!”, “Triomf van de verschroeide aarde”, and “Het rad van fortuin” by Thea Beckman. It is a real shame none of these books have been translated to English (yet) ; they are simply amazing.
And of course : all Harry Potter books (by J.K. Rowling), as well as all books written by Robin Hobb.

I feel lost without my computer. (Mmm …)
I like tinkering with code. You can see some of the results in the 'games' section of this blog.

Star Trek (obviously).
Kirk and Janeway. Spock. Scotty and Torres. Bones, Bashir, and the Doctor (can’t choose).

Coffee.

Midlife seems like a nice time to try and change my life around yet again. Read about interesting things, try out some new stuff …
And that's also where this blog comes in.

So. Welcome !
