This collection contains 43 poems from the period 1982-2005. It is a collection of "light verses" which sometimes have a very serious undertone or core. They reflect the life of the writer in a very anecdotal way, so readers should not expect too intimate, personal confessions. In general, there are two main motives: the need to capture things or events and to play with the language. All of this with a good dose of imagination. There are a few obvious sources of inspiration for this such as tennis, blues music, paintings and Amsterdam. As long as Sylvia (1954) remembers, she's been writing. In her adolescence, she sought English lyrics for a complete fantasy world of pop musicians and singers. When Sylvia was in her adolescence, she lived in Utrecht. There, she discovered her lesbian orientation that manifested in her poetic work.
