Postcard ‘Laat je maar omringen door het licht in alle dingen’


A cheerful postcard with a whole bunch of lemons and the words ‘Laat je maar omringen door het licht in alle dingen’. That means something like ‘Let yourself be surrounded by the light in everything’.

Because sometimes life feels kind of complicated. There are so many things that I don’t understand! I can easily feel overwhelmed by that feeling, it narrows down my world into that one spiral of negative thoughts. I almost forget that there’s a whole world around me. A world with trees, with gently swaying branches and leaves. A world with tons of people (who don’t always know it either). A world with singing birds. A world with lemons and lemonade. A world in which you can be surprised by beautiful music or a lovely postcard in your mailbox. And none of those things will solve all your problems, I know that. But they do give a bit of room, space, perspective. Maybe even hope.


I originally drew this illustration with India ink and liquid water colour and finished the design digitally. It’s printed on nice and firm Biotop paper (which is made of wood leftovers!). The size is 10,5 x 15 cm, just like a ‘normal’ postcard. On the back there’s room for a lovely message and the address of the receiver.
