Violet edition: Enjoying without owning

Clew’s recent colour musings have been leading up to this magnificent colour: Violet. Violet as in creativity, poetry, flowers, mystery, expectation…and Clew. Violet is Clew’s colour, and it is often regarded as the colour of wisdom and creativity. So our 3rd anniversary edition (already!) will revive some of our old words of wisdom and creativity. This is […]

Strategy for Christmas fever

Call me crazy, but this Christmas I will not go crazy looking for Christmas presents. And I am considering whether to continue with my tradition of sending holiday cards to everyone and then receive some replies ‘next year’.

Moving is just going from one place to the next

So you’re moving. No need to overstress. It’s a move; not life or death. You’re only going from one place to the next. Perhaps you’ve been relocated or your spouse has found a new job. Maybe you’ve already moved and now want to move back to where you came from. Then again, maybe you’ve never […]

A walk in the park

Sometimes right outside your doorstep can be such a nice place to be. Especially on a beautiful summer’s day or a warm summer evening.

Visits with camera: Atomium & Antwerp

CLEW photographers bring their cameras to places worth visiting in or easily reachable from Luxembourg.  Belgium can easily be overlooked when picking a close destination, and somehow if we do choose Belgium we seem to stick to the letter B – Brussels, Bruges…. But Belgium does have other letters on offer, so let’s start at the […]

A simpler life: Enjoying without owning

It may sound so simple, but it was really one of the biggest eye openers for me when I realized – I don’t have to own to enjoy. I used to love shopping. Browsing through shops and planning all the things I wanted to buy – because that was the goal: To buy. I wanted […]
