Guilty as Charged


It was in July of 2008 when I added my graffiti to this construction wood
in an underground metro station in Brussels, Belgium. 


Ginnie en Astrid

I arrived safe-n-sound in the Netherlands this past Saturday.
Our lives will never be the same!

...and it's as fresh as yesterday! You naughty girls! smile

Now was this taken today after more than a year? Or was it taken then? What a construction if this board is still standing today! smile

Wonder why nobody left dates on the board....?
Ginnie Hart: This image was taken the day I wrote my graffiti, Ti, 23 July 2008. I have no idea if the construction wood is still up. We'll have to go back to Brussels to see, I guess. smile Too bad I didn't leave a date when I wrote it. Never thought of it! HA!
Glad you arrived safely... be happy, you two!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, thank you, thank you, Larry. We have never been so happy!

I hope you will leave a mark in many places, Ginnie.

Best wishes.
Ginnie Hart: I really like that thought, Ray. We will definitely do something about that. smile Thank you.

I remember the day of the 22nd of July when we were together in Brussels.....we had a great day and the next day you went back to take pictures of all the statues in the underground, I could not believe my ears when you told me smilesmile
We laughed about it and said....if only......
Last Saturday that 'if only' came true....KSK IHVJ.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, MLMA, this was the day after we were together...when I was basking in the memory of the day before at Mini-Europe. We had so much fun that day. We truly are a good example of "good things come to those who wait." It's all even better because we waited so long! Ontzettend bedankt for waiting and hoping and wishing and doing your part of the Journey!

Good to here all the travel went as planned Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Not only that, Tony, it was the smoothest landing of all the plane rides I've ever taken (which is a lot!). I didn't even know we had touched ground. I immediately thought, "Now isn't THAT symbolic!"
yay for amsterdam! be sure to visit the van gough musee while you are there. it's small, but utterly amazing, and not far from downtown.
i wanna go too!
love the graffiti. it's sweet.
Ginnie Hart: Amsterdam was the entry point, Seraphine, where I lived half of every month for 2 years and saw all the sights. Where we're living now is an hour's drive south by car, so not quite in the same place. It's HOME and that's all that matters. Thank you!
Very neatly done Ginnie tongue
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Bill. smile

I am so happy for you two. ENJOY LIFE
Ginnie Hart: I love your happiness for us, Vintage. And just think, you're one of the few who has met us both, even though not at the same time. smile We are off to a great start for enjoying the rest of our lives! Thank you.

Haha! En jullie hebben jullie namen in het Nederlands toegevoegd, Na, dit meent: Je bent heel goed gearriveerd! Alleen maar nog een klein supplement: een fijn, rood hartje?
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine: our names are now set "in cement." grin We are both so encouraged by the support of friends like you who are rooting us on from the grandstands of Life. Ontzettend bedankt!
awwww, let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together... cute shot!!
Ginnie Hart: Our fortunes are indeed now married together, Elaine! It feels so good. smile Thank you.
All the best things possible to you and Astrid!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Richard. We are shooting for the stars! smile
evidence of your passage.....
Ginnie Hart: As you see, Fabrizio, that passage started a long time ago! Grazie.

I also have this picture too.
Great memories and many more to makegrin
SO pleased you arrived safe and sound Musketeersmile
Ginnie Hart: Awww. You are so sweet, Musketeer. Do you know that the canvas photo of the 3 of us is here in our living room! I see it every time I look over at that wall. One for all and all for one!

My husband carved our initials in a tree 1993 and when we visited the same island last summer it was still there. That felt rather good actually smile
I hope for a good life for the both of you.
Ginnie Hart: I love that, Frida! We'll find more places to leave our mark, I'm sure...and will smile. We can be worse than little kids, you know. grin Thank you for your loving support.
Have a long and happy life together. all the best Mick.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Mick. With all of you in our support group, we feel like we can be strong forever.

You little pair of vandals! Best of luck in your new life together.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: Astrid was with me the day before I did this work of vandalism, Ingrid, so you can blame it all on me. I take full responsibility. But knowing her, if sahe had been with me, she would have egged me on. grin Thanks for being in our circle of friends.
Yours is very neat grafitti! Best wishes to you both.
Ginnie Hart: I should have disguised my penmanship, Linda! smile Next time I'll be more careful. HA! Thanks for your good wishes.

FUN! Love the concept of grafitti being a preserved art form and a moment remembered.
Ginnie Hart: It is definitely a moment remembered, Marcie. Thanks for your support of us.
not my kind of photo this one
Ginnie Hart: Chantal, did you look at Astrid's post today and do you understand what's going on?? This is not about photography...

the writing was on the wall even then
Ginnie Hart: Yes, JIM. Perfectly spoken!
Yeah!!!!! You've made it safe and sound and now....a new life begins. All the best to You en Astrid.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. I feel I've had a great community move over with me. It's wonderful.
A portense of things to come Ginnie. How does it feel to be an honorary European?
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Brian, one of the reasons I'm here is because I've always felt I was more European than American from a very young age. I really do feel like I'm come back home!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. I have indeed arrived across the Pond and have hit the ground running. We've waited for this day a long time!
Ginnie, that is shocking behavour!..... but it makes for a neat shot though. I hope you and Astrid are both very well.

Regards

Ginnie Hart: We are indeed very well, Paul...Thank You. This just proves you are never too old to be "shocking." grin

Ginnie Hart: We're never to old to leave our mark, Rian, are we! Thanks.
Life will never be the same? It never has been, nor will be! smile
Congrats to you and Astrid and your brave new life together. Cheers.

he he he. nice,
Ginnie Hart: HA! Gracias, Oscar! smile
Oh yes....well done Ginnie. Is it still there ?
Ginnie Hart: This was in July of 2008, Ron, and I haven't been back since, so I have no idea if it's still there. It's still there in my hearty and that's all that matters. Thanks.
That is so sweet. Your life is going to really take off now.
Ginnie Hart: And indeed it HAS taken off, Michael! I have hardly sat still since arriving....well, not quite that bad. But I have been out-n-about a lot already! Getting the lay of the land. smile
Good luck G and A.

richard
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
Wonderful stuff Ginnie. It's good to leave a mark
Ginnie Hart: And we're never too old, are we, Janet?!! smile Thank you.
May this combination of names never change! I am very happy for you; enjoy!!
Ginnie Hart: God willing and the creek don't rise, Wim, this combination will go with me to my grave! Thanks! smile

Gekken en dwazen shrijven hulle name op deuren en glazen. Ja, zo is't dan. Ze zei ook al lang dat verliefde mensen dwazerig doen [heh, heh].

Happy landings. I hope you can cook, since I have heard Astrid doesn't like to do that and prefers going to MacDonalds ...
Ginnie Hart: You can imagine the fun I had with Astrid over my shoulder last evening explaining to me the difference between her Dutch and your SA Dutch, Louis. smile And yes, I can cook and am delighted to take over that job from the lady who brings home the bacon. It's the least I can do...and she is so appreciative! We are both happy campers. smile Thanks for your support of us, Louis.

A fresh start. Tell us all about your new life. How exciting.
Ginnie Hart: Little by little, beetje bij beetje, it'll all come out, Maria, I'm sure! smile
Great graffiti shot! Well fill me in on the latest, I am behind on the gist!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, the gist is that I have a new partner and have moved to live with her, Yinks! That's the short version. smile
When you penned your names above that knothole, you were "not whole" - but look how things have changed!

Best wishes for today and always!
Ginnie Hart: What is it they say about visualizing something, Linda? If you can "see" it, you can do it, right?! I guess I bear testimony to that...big time. smile Thank you for your very kind support of us and our Journey.
j'aime beaucoup les murs ainsi rempli d'histoires
Ginnie Hart: It makes you realize, O-P, that all the graffiti everywhere is full of stories to be told! Merci for that thought.
oh beautiful. an hours drive south probably puts you in den haag? best bread i ever had was in den haag, at a little neighborhood bakery. the other thing i loved in holland was the fritasause that was served with the potats. oh and the coffee. oh and... well, everything!
Ginnie Hart: Yup! That's exactly how I feel about almost all of Europe, Seraphine. I passed through Den Haag years ago while on a 7-city tour of Holland. But one day I will go back and spend quality time there. Maybe I'll look for and find your neighborhood bakery?! smile I like that thought.
it's not Hollywood , but a good place to let your signature smile
have fun !
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'll take the Brussels Underground any day to Hollywood, Jean-Luc. Thanks for the smile. smile

I look at this with much wonder as it reminds of school days when one dreams of meeting their special someone and writing similar captions on a desk, on a book cover, in a notebook, etc. etc.
Your long held dream/vision is finally here, I'm very happy for the both of you.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Bob. I was a prophet in my own time. smile
