For years there are 2 swans that build their nest along the water at the Weber flat.
This water borders, among other things, on the back gardens of Malakkastraat.
Also this year there was a nest with 4 eggs at the beginning of April. The municipality had stretched a ribbon on the footpath along the water and even two crush barriers.
To our astonishment, the nest was emptied and destroyed at the beginning of May ……
The local police officer has been informed of this.
Unfortunately the culprit was never found.
The swans are still swimming around here ….. without youngsters this year.

Imagination brought to life. Couperus and the stage

On Monday 10 June 2019 the seventeenth Couperus Cahier was presented in the Louis Couperus Museum in The Hague:

Imagination brought to life. Couperus and the stage Rob van der Zalm.
Over the past hundred years, many Couperus novels have been adapted for the stage, from Eline Vereen The books of the little soul until The silent power. Rob van der Zalm in this booklet sketches the history of these arrangements, the different perspectives and the choices that the processors were faced with. He does this against the background of the developments in Dutch theater since the seventies. Finally, the author tries to convince the reader that new emotions can be drawn from old novels and that Couperus’ paper characters get a whole new life on stage. The cahier is beautifully illustrated with photos of many Couperus performances.

From ‘t Klokhuis, message, Elisabeth König:

From  July 14th to October 6th there is a special exhibition with a bit of nostalgia. Work of  Rien Homburg, already exhibited in 1997 ’at Klokhuis, and has since died.

I suddenly thought of him when I bought a pair of shoes in his old special / shoe store (now Wassenaar) and luckily his daughter still had some paintings of his!
