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 launched in March 2018. The book is now for sale. 

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.

On 17 April 2015, The Haiku Foundation inaugurated HaikuLife, a video project celebrating International Haiku Poetry Day. HaikuLife is both a program of haiku videos offered on International Haiku Poetry Day, and The Haiku Foundation’s video presentation format. HaikuLife includes videos in the HaikuLife format as well as other formats. Here is my contribution to HaikuLife 2018 "Life is Beautiful". Please visit the Haiku Foundation to enjoy more entries by talented poets and artists from around the world. www.thehaikufoundation.org

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