Bica de Ideias

 An idea without action is like a song without vocal. Corine Timmer, Faro, Portugal 

welcome to my site

Hi I´m Corine

Bica de Ideias (fountain of ideas), is about ideas turned into projects and passions that move me. 

One of those passions is animals. A few years ago on a dusty road in Spain an encounter between myself, a baby boar, and a pointy-eared hunting dog touched my heart to such an extent it led to my first children´s storybook. As I enthusiastically ran a little too fast, I decided to revise the book for a new edition. Djabali´s Journey was published in December 2017 and is now for sale. To learn more please visit Bica Books.

Apart from creative writing, I am intermittently active in Design & Decoration and continuously active in Animal Care & Welfare. If you stumble upon some strange looking words in places, don´t worry, they are Dutch. You are welcome to linger. You may even find a selection of haiku.

You may encounter technical problems with the blog. Vistaprint is looking into it.
