Tim Carpenter in Amsterdam – April 2017

From Tim: Feeling grateful. Visiting this great city/country for the Stanton Fellowship supported by The Durfee Foundation (Claire Peeps and Carrie Avery, my thanks and friendship to you), learning so much about what it means to be an elder, to be a person, in community, with a sense of purpose and being alive. There is a Dutch quality known as Gezellig, which roughly translates to convivial or cozy. It’s easier experienced than defined, but it’s like time stops, and there’s an intimacy with where you are, right now. The colors, the water, the scents, the breeze, making it possible for life at all ages to simply connect, to be, to be alive. We can create community for all ages, with purpose and authenticity.
