If I could choose, I would like to be like Roos when I am 62. Roos is a grand lady, a friend of a friend, who is full of life and living. She could go dancing at 2 o’clock in the night and could invite positive attention from young people who wanted to dance with her ! Roos lived in this wonderful house, full of light and warmth, just as her heart. Set in three floors and an attic, it was close to a waterfront.
I loved Amsterdam, its beautiful waterways, boats, flowers and cycles.
Roos, took us to see the Tulip fields, as that’s all I could think about ! And from there we went to a coastal village on the North Sea. The water was freezing and dipping our feet into the sea didn’t seem like a good idea.
