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.


Yay! It´s time again for a haiku a day during the month of February.


Why not join in the fun and pop over to the NAHAIWRIMO page on Facebook. See you there? 




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