I am going on holidays!When you look at this picture you can find the moon. It's coming into it's first quarter. I will be gone till the next new moon.
For two weeks of that time i will be in Holland. And i am looking forward to it very much. It's just when i am scrounging around in the forest and definitely on a gorgeous day like this, this is were i am on holidays, my vacation destination is where i live.

To be somewhat useful on the second last day of my 'vacation' (today), i went to cut wood. Don found some big ones. Here you see the roots of some of those spruce we cut.

When the tree is blown over you see how the roots are shallow and wide.

Don didn't cut down the following one. It was still standing, and still had a little life in it. You can see how it was damaged (probably animals, not people, because there... were no people here in our backyard.) early on in it's life.

It's spruce pitch you see, and it is so old it turned grey.

And the last picture, hmmmm i spotted an interesting mountain
sometimes how the light falls, it brings out a shape i didn't see before. Now that's what i think is a good destination for a holiday, and will only take me a day, to hike up to it.

ps Don thinks its a bit of a mirage. Yeah sure, i be hiking towards an illusion (and that sounds eerily like a preordaination of my life:)

Have a great holiday in Holland ... and at some level, isn't everything an illusion. (I'll be in Belgium later this summer.)

People always ask us why he don't travel ... we tell them we live in a vacation spot so why should we?! Still, I'm sure you'll enjoy your trip, the people you will see. Enjoy your time away. Home will only look better when you get back.

Have a great holiday. I love your blog and the pictures you always post.

btw I'm wondering how your art show went... I meant to go, but wound up not being able to make it. I hope it went well and would love to see some of your stuff one of these days :)
