Break the chains – April 2018 – A flashback of February and March
Finally spring is here.
It feels like the chains are broken. Warm days, flowers and greens bursting from their sockets …
I feel like running Hawkeye-eye style through the forests…
On April 3rd finally swimming in the ocean again…
In some regions I feel like being in the Toscana or on a Greek island…
Idyllic harbours, peacefully quiet…
2018-The new year has arrived! Happy New Year everybody!
It’s been absolutely chaotic since the end of December…
Gigantic snowfall, computer broken for four weeks, car broken, snow shoveling everyday for three weeks. Unbelievable! I think I am in Canada, here!!
Here some impressions…
That is today, January 31st. But the weeks before were like this:
See you next time around ….
November 2017 – Hi, Hai!
Poor guy, shark stranded on the beach. Didn’t move any more.
So I called this beach ‘Dead Shark Bay’.
Swimming thereafter felt a bit strange then. But I did it anyway.
November 2017 – Last ocean-swimming this year?
Even though the air has gotten colder, the water seemed somewhat okay to me. So I swam once more for an hour on November, 10th.
Touchdown … cool ocean water …
A beautiful day in November. And I had a customer close to the beach, so I just spent my lunch-break at the beach.
November 2017 – Colors changing
Finally the days have gotten shorter and the nights colder, so the leaves are turning yellow, orange, purple…
Here the view from my house:
And on my property there are two, three trees that even started blossoming, now in November. How crazy is that? Beautiful pinkish blossoms. On the other one there were some mini-cherries all over the place.
In earlier years I wanted to live in Canada. And now I sometimes find myself in a place that comes close … this one might as well be somewhere in Vancouver Island.
October 2017 – Side jobs & co.
Besides my art works project and the Language and Sports Studio I am also trying get more experience and collect more impressions from living in Japan, doing also all kinds of other jobs. on the side.
Here I cut firewood for a newly-opened gourmet restaurant in downtown Hiroshima.
October 2017 – Art Fair ‘Inazumitei Tenjikai’
My second art fair, here in Japan.
This time I was a little more prepared than last time. And the response was very satisfying!
