Wir haben endlich mal wieder eine Reise gemacht:-)
Die Corona Pandemie hatte unsere Reisepläne ja gehörig durcheinander gebracht, alle für das vergangene Jahr geplanten Reisen konnten wir nicht antreten, konnten unsere Familie und Freunde nicht besuchen. Bis auf einen kleinen Abstecher in unsere Umgebung (Cahors, Saint Cirque de Lapopie, Conques, Rodez und Arles) im Juni, blieben wir zu Hause. Wo es zugegebenermaßen auch sehr schön ist, aber ich fühlte mich schon ein wenig "ausgetrocknet" und brauchte mal einen Ortswechsel.

Some fairy dust

When traveling in China in 2019 I had the opportunity to get a very short introduction into Chinese calligraphy and traditionell Chinese painting at the Tang Bo Art Museum Xian. It was a rainy afternoon and the hotel receptionist recommended this museum as a must see to better understand Chinese art. We were the only visitors and the museum guide was happy to welcome two interested visitors. Our very detailed private tour ended in something like a classroom where we learned about ancient, traditionell and modern Chinese writing.


Last weeks I worked with very raw materials: petrified earth, field stones, stones that have crumbled into earth, gravel and lots of beton. We built a floor in a part of an old cave, about 28 square meters. We chopped out a lot of earth and stones (because over the years, some of what was stored on the ground dissolved into some kind of soil), transported most of it into our garden as a foundation for a new vegetable bed, levelled the ground with gravel and concreted the ground.
