Chiang Mai Dragonfly
I was at a lake in Chiang Mai, Thailand when a dragonfly landed on my toe for a minute or so. Maybe someone out there knows if this might symbolize anything or is it just cool it happened.

Bom dia com alegria!! O fim de semana está à porta e tenho bons planos, a  feria de gastronomia de Valência, uma prova de vinhos e trekking fazem parte dos meus planos !!!

Hoje continuo com fotos das minhas últimas férias na minha bela ilha, Madeira!!! Se no meu último post declarei o meu amor pelo mar (podem vê-lo clicando aqui), neste post apresento-vos outra das minhas grandes debilidades: as montanhas madeirenses! Já subimos ao pico mais alto da ilha, o Pico Ruivo, neste post, e as fotos de hoje na zona do Paúl da Serra e Serra d’Agua.

Espero que gostem das fotos e obrigada pelos comentários!

Ps. Nas fotos em que saio com a minha família, parecemos cansados? Sim! Temos uma boa desculpa, acabávamos de trocar as sapatilhas de montanha por umas chinelas depois de acordar bem cedo e fazer uma caminhada de umas 4 horas.

June 27: That Hiking Sweet Spot

The lack of wifi has helped me get into the backpacker’s routine, a series of activities which if repeated long enough transport you into a blissful alternative reality.  Your thoughts run the gauntlet from your deepseated emotional problems, to the shape of your next haircut, or to what you’ll name your first child.  But in the end there’s nothing you can do about any of it, so in the meantime you’re gifted a calm, joyful serenity fueled by hiking endorphins and scenery, and uninterrupted by the variable, but routine way of life.

So now I feel things are both possible and impossible.  Impossible because things will have to be revised, in terms of mileage and also geography, but I think we already established that.  Things are also more possible now because I’m in a hiker’s state of mind.  I can easily see myself walking nearly every day.  I’m now so thoroughly enjoying this (though, as easily as a sunny day in Wales turns to rain, that may change).

But this is going… well.  Rather well.  I’ve accepted slightly smaller ambitions, which are still pretty ambitious if you ask me.  But I’m happy.

Because here I am in a little blip in the map of Wales, where time has already slowed down in the first place, spending my time talking to sheep, petting horses’ noses, hopping over stiles, and trudging up steep pastures and past ancient oaks.  Over ridges of commonly grazed hills where ponies run free and lambs bleat for their mothers.  Then I descend that hill to the next tiny town, stop at the pub if I fancy, and if not, move on.  And I find this quite enjoyable.

At night I find a campground, cook up some dinner while sitting in the grass.  Watch the sun set.  Read some War and Peace.  Then sleep.  Hike, eat, hike, eat, read, sleep.  Talk to farm animals, greet random people.  Walk, eat, sleep.

Life is good.

Zuiderstrand, The Hague, The Netherlands

11 Jul
My name is Ed Gool, a daily photographer and I life in The Hague, the Netherlands.
After two years of taking pictures of the Zuiderstrand (Southern Beach), I thought it was a good idea to submit a picture for your blog.
The picture is taken at the Zuiderstrand, The Hague.
The sun was shining bright and the wind was blowing and my foot was smiling.

Rotterdam, The Netherlands

“Suspended between heaven and earth in the gestational thrall of the sea. The clouds float below  the water’s surface, the sky seems liquid like water. A lovely inversion here. Don’t you think?

It’s a head on shot, as the swimmer glides toward us, between two pieces of land in the distance. The surface of the water bisects the canvas with a delicate horizontal line. The broad field of blue sky and the swath of cloud white water add emphasis to this line.  But wait, there’s more. Connect with your finger the lone cloud, the mass of land on the right, finger-like seaweed at the bottom, and the mass of land on the left, finishing again with the blue cloud.  You have encircled the swimmer, a circumscription joining these four painted elements.

See references to the womb here — use your imagination (i.e. seaweed placenta). The swimmer at this angle, in a fetal position. However, the image speaks more than ” the ocean is our Mother.” Its the freedom created when your stroke settles into a hypnotic rhythm. You cease to exist like you did on land. This new-found buoyant body, ubiquitous wetness and the sweet salt taste in your mouth, the soft rock of the waves. Plucks you from time and delivers you for the briefest moment to the soul of eternity.

(At least that’s what the guy at the YMCA said)  And I thought, “Yeah, but once I was almost killed by that sea. ”
