10 years already

Ten years ago today – 24 April 2010 – Ria and I set foot for the first time on the land we now call home. Back then, Ria was living with me and my kids in Wolowe Saint Pierre (Brussels) and Chrisje was living at the Koningsmolen in Eliksem. Now all three of us are well rooted in Ransberg, and Simon has joined us as Ria’s partner.

It goes without saying that a lot has changed in ten years. We have changed, the house has changed, the land has changed. And all of those changes have been, it feels, for the better. This place has been such a nurturing, spacious and magical partner in the unfolding of our lives together. I would like to pay tribute to our shared adventure with some then-and-now pictures bearing witness to all that has transpired in 10 years.

The changes are even visible from space – Ria, above all, has shaped the land, installing vegetable beds, flower beds, fruit bushes, the green house…
