My name is Arend Victorie, and you are very welcome at my Lowlands site.
Here you’ll find some of the shortstories and poems that sometimes haunt
my mind. That’s why I call them “brain webs.” I was born on August 28, 1952, in a small village in the province Drenthe in
the north of the Netherlands. Currently I am one of about 50.000 residents
of the Drenthe town Hoogeveen.
My hobby is
poems and theatre plays. The plays deal with old folk legends of Drenthe and
are performed during several street festivals every year. Besides that, I
am stage manager for two amateur theatre groups in the region. And that’s also
why I am interested in old culture and the history of the northern Lowlands.
I use my Drenthe language as much as possible, not only in writing but also
in speaking. For almost for a year now I have been volunteering in a hospice
for terminally ill cancer patients. That kind of work
gives me satisfaction and makes me think about life.
I hope it gives you pleasure
my “brain webs.”
