My Interests


Follow my gardening journey and get a peek into my gardening style, my adventures, my thoughts on gardening and my tips for a healthy happy garden!


Explore my thoughts on climate and related issues, as I am discovering new sources and will be sharing my view and new insights on this urgent matter.

Dance & Yoga

Sharing my insights and thoughts on topics related to dance and yoga, ranging from theoretical essays about kinaesthetics to meditation techniques.


Nature will have the main stage in my blogs and photography, but many other topics, projects and issues might come by! Dance & Yoga will be another recurring theme, but do not be surprised to see Dutch mills or rollerskating making an appearance too.

I am: a nature lover, ecological gardener, Social Psychologist and Cultural Sociologist, dancer and yogi & I love rollerskating, photography and writing.

About Me

My name is Michelle Boelee, and through the years of trying to figure out who I am and what I want, and how the world works, I have come to terms with that I still hardly know anything, BUT I am happy to share what my thoughts and insights are on matters or topics I think are important, interesting and/or fun. 

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”  — Elliott Erwitt


From time to time I head out in nature or am asked by someone in my circles to come take pictures. Nature photography has always been a favorite of mine, combining hiking with finding the beautiful shots. Photography and filming project has mostly focused on dance and yoga, but some portraits too. 

Gallery Themes


Nature Landscapes

Hiking and/or strolling through beautiful places and enjoying the landscapes away from the cities and towns.


Nature Close-ups

Sometimes your eye just falls on a detail in nature, and you have to zoom in and take that shot.


Dancers & Projects

As a dancer I can’t help it, I love to capture the elegance of dancers and dancing, or am captured on film myself.


Film Projects

Once in a while I either participate in either dancing in a film or in filming the dancers myself. 

Climate Quote by Vandana Shiva

‘India in the 21st centurt needs to be building on Gandhi’ s legacy […]. It needs to avoid repeating the ecological and social mistakes of the West. India has offered alternatives based sustainability and pluralism. Gandhi observed:
God forbid that India should ever take to industrialism after the manner of the West. The economic imperialism of a single tiny island kingdom [England] is today keeping the world in chains. If an entire nation of 300 million took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world bare like locusts.’ 
We are today 1 billion. And we are being asked to adopt the lifestyles and economies of the 20 percent of humanity who have been using 80 percent of the world’s resources. If 100 million rich Indians want to live like their Western counterparts it would take more resources than the world has to offer and the attempt would force their brothers and sisters to give up their water, their land, their homes, and their livelihood. The highway project is not uniting India; it is dividing India. It is creating an automobile apartheid in which the rich drive at high speeds on highways built by cutting through villages and forests, tearing down homes, farms, and trees. They drive through withour even seeing the brothers and sisters whose livelihoods they are robbing […]’
(Soil, Not Oil – p. 62).

Climate Quote by Vandana Shiva

‘India’s tradition of leaving a small ecological footprint on the planet is being erased in a race by India’s elite to imitate and outdo the industrialized West in consuming the Earth’s resources – in usurping the ecological space of other beings, indigenous and rural communities, and the urban poor ‘
(Soil, Not Oil – p. 59).

Dance Quote by Martha Graham

“I feel that the essence of dance is the expression of man–the landscape of his soul. I hope that every dance I do reveals something of myself or some wonderful thing a human can be.”
(Blood Memory)

Yoga Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar

“Yoga allows you to find a new kind of freedom that you may not have known even existed.”

We kennen het waarschijnlijk allemaal dat gevoel: volledige absorptie door een taak of activiteit. Deze volledige mentale absorptie wordt ook wel de ervaring van flow genoemd.

Kinesthetica is de kunstbeschouwing van het bewegen. Kunst kent natuurlijk vele vormen: visuele kunst, muziek, poëzie, proza etc. Ik ben gek op kunst en de creatieve energie in de kunstwereld. Dans is desalniettemin de kunstvorm die mij het dichtst bij het hart staat.
