HOLIDAY SEASON

I am happy to return quite soon again to the much cooler mountains and fresh heights of the Alps because this year was simply tropical hot and too dry till now. And summerfreshness in this regard means also a nice passion and annual recurring ritual while passing by old stony paths, gorges, meadows or mudslides and focussing the mountain’s top. When getting up late or in case it is simply really just too hot at all, a nearby chilly lake or coffee-shop may also be very stimulating targets.  So in the time being this blog will  relax a little bit in creative tranquility until beginning of September. Cheerio.

 

 

 

MIDSUMMER IN NIÈVRE / FRANCE

The Nièvre is a more quiet region in the heart of France, a lot of agriculture, meadows, small villages and forgotten cities while their centres are swept clear due to the everywhere spreading shopping-malls on the outskirts of such towns. But there an ideal place is waiting in the Summer’s heat, meaning the cool shadow of an old tree, for listening to the birds and dreaming the other stories of life. Now time has come to move faster to far away horizons. See you soon again.
