Dijkstraatje 6, Enkhuizen
This still Lady is looking out over the street where Sig and I live. She is the most popular image photographed by people from all over the world. If only she could feel and think and talk.

In the morning the crows are sitting on her head to greet each other. In early summer the swallows are screeching, diving, falling in front of her. I know that because she is attached to my flat, just under the sitting room window.

There is a part of me that wants to clean her up and re-paint her; on the other hand, her antique look is attractive too… In any event, she is a lovely pointer for people coming to our flat: “spot the mermaid!” (we call her Our mermaid) walk just a bit further and then you see our front-door. There is no way you can miss this Lady!
