what's happening


 today a slightly different route leading to fresh vistas of the well known woods





when a dog pees it mean one of two things, either he's mapping the terrain with his own personal markers, or he needs to relieve himself

love how the trees lean



 not a particularly enticing view, however these are the two trees that create the gap, when viewed from across the water:





a group photo of sorts; it took me so long to get a small portion of the entire Gang organized enough for them to strike a pose and then once I had my phonecamera ready, I looked up and noticed a couple of agitated birds had done a runner! I now realize how frustrating it must have been for my dad when we stood moaning and bickering when he was trying very hard to take a picture of us all together; I'm in the process of making a book about the Dwelling and thought a group photo would be nice.....I have already made a smaller, simpler version with just the images:
this has been a useful tool gently nudging me towards the images that work and those that don't, however I think the stories are essential, so now through the magic of Blurb.com I am truly making a book

Ahhhhhhhh....Everything! Just Everything!! First the amazingly beautiful tree, land and water views! Oh, to walk you lands! On to the group photo. Its just splendid! I am reminded of when I try to get a group of toddlers to all look at the camera at the same time. I would love to see the out-takes from your session! lol And then, here they are...all sitting pretty. I love seeing the baby girls wrapped in the arms of A Go-Rilla! Haha, who better to protect and care for them, but a gentle giant?! And Dutch Boy, looking off into the distance...now what is he thinking? Old Bird King, Marge,sleeping dog and so, so,so many more...I can barely contain myself! And then...YES!!!! A BOOK! A beautiful book - WITH WINDOWS TO PEER THROUGH!!! - A book about The Dwelling!! I can't wait to see. I can't wait to see. I can't wait to see!!

I am ever-so grateful you are truly writing this book.
Thank you Saskia, for all of this.
Thank you Sax.
