    Hi brothers/sisters,

    Glad that I found this site, with help from Destee!

    There is an English/American expression; 'castles burning'. You can find it in several poems and song lyrics. Does anyone of you happen to know the meaning of this expression? I am Dutch and have never known the meaning!

    Love,
    Noah

    Hi Noah and welcome!!! :waving:

    You know, I vaguely recall hearing a song once with that term used but I have no idea of its origin nor meaning. Hmmmm..interesting question. I look forward to knowing the answer.

    Hope to see you around more!

    Peace :)

    Thanx NNQueen; nice meeting you! I got the line from Neil Young, wonderfully covered by Annie Lennox (you can hear it in 'American Beauty).

    And hi Libertyaida. Alles goed??

    Cool that you are from Holland too, living in the great Amsterdam (I am in Arnhem but I often go to this great capital city). Groovy name, by the way;-) Has it got anything to do with the musical which is currently playing in Scheveningen?

    Some additional info;

    I am a 24 year old boy from Arnhem. I am Moroccan but I was born and raised in the Netherlands. I study to become a teacher in English in Utrecht. I am also a singer and write my own music. I'd like to share some of my writings with y'all and I will.

    Destee referred me to your picture, since she knew I was Dutch too and I must say; you are a beautiful mum;-)

    See you girls later!
