So much going on here, not just the build-and-all-things-related, nor the beings that have appeared on my freeed-up workbench in the studio (a byproduct of my personal building frenzy)
I have become an activist, somewhat small-time and late in the day, but hey very involved and fired up!
what about you may wonder?
Let me explain: in the nearby woods, or rather in the recreational part of those woods (only in the Netherlands do we have these kinds of distinctions I guess) the campsite changed hands 10 years ago.
The new consortium of owners blew in from the Randstad, imagining they were treading upon uninhabited territory - as if such a things exists in our teeny tiny country - followed in their trail by their many handsomely paying guests, turning the once quiet, rather boring, campsite into a noisy event-tooting wannabe place for the incrowd.
For 7 months of the year we might be treated to music on a balmy Summer evening as it stampedes into our gardens and bedrooms, or shaken up by fireworks at midnight.....light-laser shows have shooed away the little owls from their nesting box, peace no more for the critters in the woods, litter noise light, ugh!
Recently they have acquired a licence to enlarge the site ánd organise 12 events during the season, officially, 'cos up till now they have been staging way more than the 2 they have permits for. I do not know how this kind of stuff is regulated in other countries, but here you can only dispute a permit application once it has been granted!
So there we are, on opposing sides of the poker table.
I'm not gonna say more because I don't know who's reading this blog and I do not want to show my cards just yet
