growing old

I and Self

in loneliness and Oneness


happy and sad

and between all that

just a human

balancing on the cord of life

About Marialenn

My name is Marialenn Langendoen. Writing and painting is next to my work, what I spend most of my time with at the moment . I started writing and drawing as a child , but this was dismissed as kind of trifling and a long time I quitted but always missing this way of expressing myself. Around 1985 I took it seriously again and I never stopped writing and painting again. Wonderful to see how my poems have grown through the experiences in my life and being a therapist , I have a great source from which I can draw . I write about what I encounter in everyday life, about the past, where ever a mirror has been holding up to me. I easily project and I have a large feeling of empathy . Amazed about a painting, an art object or picture I write poems without hesitation and delete them seldom because the first impression is always my truth at that moment. Sometimes I write my poems directly in English and sometimes in Dutch, it's just what occurs . So it can happen that my English is a little shaky, I was born out of a Dutch mother and a South African father , so please do not blame me on language I do my best . My poems may seem to be heavy , yet I am happy woman with a lot of life experience and love to have fun. So let’s have it together Feel free to ask me any questions you want…..
