Welcome! My name is Ineke. I’m Dutch but have been living in England for more than 11 years. I now live in one of the most beautiful valleys of Northumberland with amazing night skies (no light pollution!). I’m very much an ‘English’ Baha’i and find it easier to discuss my Faith in English than in Dutch. That’s what happens when you investigate something deeply in another language! So, writing some posts (not all!) in Dutch about the things that are important in my life will be good (and a challenge!) for me.
I sincerely try to apply Baha’i principles to all aspects of my life. At the moment I’m working as a translator and administrator/editor, but am also involved in several organizations in my local community (“abundance of deeds” remember?).
Oh. In case you’re wondering about this photo. It was taken at the 16th session of the UN’s Commission on Sustainabel Development (CSD-16) in the UN’s main Assembly Hall in New York in May 2008. I had the immense privilege to attend as a delegate of the Baha’i International Community, representing the UK’s Baha’i community.
