We hold hands as if our lives depended on it.
Our hands contain a lifetime of stories.
Of lives saved, children nurtured, meals prepared, gardens grown, homes created, fruit picked, yoga practiced, pictures painted, stories written.
In our hands we feel, love, hope, peace, tranquility, kindness,
wisdom, reassurance and we always safe.

Afzien is a Flemish word that originates from the sport of cycling.

Afzien means to suffer whilst engaged in vigorous physical effort, especially in the wind, rain and cold whilst riding over mud strewn cobbles.

Afzien is part of a secret language that’s peculiar to Flemish cycling.

Afzien sends shivers down my spine.

Afzien is part of what attracts me to cycling.

I ran towards it in bare feet through the soft warm sand
I imagined it was a football
I kicked it as hard I could
It didn’t move
I heard my foot crack and break into several pieces
The can was filled with concrete
I collapsed onto the ground howling from the pain
I was 5 years old
I’ve never kicked a can since that day.
