I got the chance to see some Northern Lights recently but it’s been mostly cloudy alas
We also got a lot of snow in February, it was fantastic!
The icicles sparkling in the moonlight. A great place to read on my tablet in my comfy chair with a hot water bottle and a cup of tea.
The way Home…
I’ve always been fascinated by robots. I love what is usually considered as a little boy’s universe, science fiction, robots and silly monsters. I suppose I never truly ditched my imaginary friends. And what great friends they are! Of course, it would be very unfair to compare them with our human friends, those are “inner friends” and they do have an advantageous vantage point. Lately, I’ve been obsessed with slave societies in Europe, reading a whole list of books on the subject. And I’ve also been obsessed with Raised by Wolves, the subtle and multi-layered series by Ridley Scott. It’s all connected somehow. Keeping it all at the right temperature in my Inner Athanor, my alchemist furnace…
This is a work in progress, it will be a little shop where you can buy robots made by this robot master on the right.
And look! The Liminal Orchestra from my Snowy Town paper diorama is in town! The poster is what inspired me the handmade book about Imagination I’m working on.
It’s that time of the year when the sun is coming back into my room and lights my altar, sending ripples of light through the room.
Meanwhile, I was full of good resolutions but when I came back from work, my Beloved had made a hazelnut tart. Had absolutely no other choice than to eat some. It was delicious.
Many beautiful dreams lately!
I had a wonderful dream last night, a dear friend from France was coming for a visit and brought with her a few of her friends. It was SO cosy!!! I felt understood and appreciated. A much needed dream after having been bullied at work by "nazi" customers. This dream was highly therapeutic. No dream is ever "only a dream".
Last night, I dreamed I had woken up in a hostel of some sort and at the breakfast table, there were 5 or 6 judgmental ladies whom I found it difficult to talk to, I could see they were uptight and disapproved of me on principle. I got irritated and stood up, looked at them, indignant and said : "Ok. You know you're dreaming, right?". They yelped horrified and disappeared with a "poof!". Now... that's better.
I dreamed last night I was going to work... on skis. I got up extra early since I had a long way to go. There was absolutely no one around and the snow was perfect. It was very special. It felt like a great adventure. Although I wouldn't do it in reality, it is 22 km one way!
Last night, I took the big leap for love. I dreamed I was on a mountain and I was trying to walk down. I arrived at the edge of a cliff at a height of a hundred meters or so and I realised with horror that my little Pixie didn't see the edge and plunged right into the ocean below. My beloved tried to stop me but I jumped. I fell a long way and dived into the depth of the ocean and swam frantically back to the surface, leaving my backpack to sink. As I was getting close to the surface, I could see my Pixie swimming, my heart soared with joy. I grabbed her and together we swam to the shore.
Hello Lovely Kundry! So good to see a post from you and all your wonderful work. I’m so excited to see the Liminal Orchestra is in town and the date on the poster is my birthday – how fabulous is that! Did you take the photos of the Lights? They are great photos. Right now i would really really really love to comb my hair with the icicles hanging in the window. As i don’t stay up late anymore i miss the night but i hadn’t realised how beautiful it was to wake early. i love being outside early and walking, riding or swimming or just looking at all the wildlife that is still out and about, and i really like to see first light and later the sunrise. Keep creating and covid free. love to you dear Kundry, jo xxx
Thank you, dear Jo! Oh, the Liminal Orchestra certainly had you in mind when they chose the date! I took the photos of the lights through my bedroom window. Ah, I know the dilemma of choosing between the stars and the morning light! But since the job wears me out, I’m a wreck in the evening, I cannot stay for the stars. Mornings are so vibrant with energy, I’m glad you’re having such a great time!Now, going to soft boil eggs for my breakfast and light some candles… Take care, dear Jo and hugs.
Quelle chance de pouvoir admirer les aurores boréales, c’est tellement beau !
J’ai hâte de découvrir les petits livres que tu comptes créer, ils seront magnifiques !
Comme toi, j’aime les robots. Ça me va très bien si c’est pour les petits garçons ^^ Quand j’étais enfant, j’aimais aussi les petites voitures. Dommage que personne n’ait eu l’idée de me faire découvrir Transformers XD
J’adorerai aller acheter un robot chez ton Robot Master. Et je sais déjà lequel, héhé !
Ton autel est magnifique, si plein de vie et de couleurs !
Merci Tardis Girl! Apparement, d’apres ce que j’ai compris, chez le Robot Master, c’est le robot qui te choisit ;-).
Comme les baguettes dans Harry Potter, cool !! J’aimerai bien savoir quel robot me choisirai
