It is hard to know where to begin

There are new things to see and photograph every day.  So much so that its hard to find time to deal with posting.

Our first trip out from Leuven where we are based was to the north where we took some time to visit Ypres and the huge cemetery close to Pashendale.  Here are some of the photos – enjoy the set I have begun at Flikr.

Ypres was the place where my grandfather was wounded in 1916.  He ended up losing a leg but also ended up in hospital in England where he met and married my grandmother.  Good can come of bad things.

Every Now and Then

For my sanity, I have to get away by myself.  I need solitude in order to regain my balance.

Solitude plus nature is just about pure bliss.

So – this weekend was a treat for me.  It was needed for many reasons and it was good.  Here is where I stayed.

But now, I’m back and this week will hold many things, including my midterm in Greek.  I spent a lot of good time studying this weekend and I guess that  is what every spare minute this week will be composed of.  It seems as if every time I go back over the paradigms, there is something not quite remembered, so I repeat it again, write it out, read it out, look at it, listen to it.  I have learned a lot but there is so much more to remember perfectly.

Well, I don’t suppose I will do perfectly, but I will do my best.

Anyway, I have put a few of the pictures I took this weekend up over at Flikr if you want to check them out.  I’ll also be posting some of them this week on my Click blog.

Schmaps

A bit ago the people who make these interactive maps asked if I would consider allowing them to shortlist a phot I took last summer when Leo and visited The Field Museum in Chicago.

The museum is a fascinating place holding a collection of archeological finds to  insects and natural science displays.  It holds something that will entrance people of all and almost any interest.  My photo looks down into the open main floor and entrance hall. It really requires more than a day to explore.  Only problem is sensory overload – there is so much to see.

Distracted

There are many tasks I need to buckle down and work on the rest of this week.  The sermon is coming but it has not come easily.  The quiet in my house now that everyone has gone home is good but it is easy to procrastinate and otherwise find ways to waste time.
The computer is a great tool and also a great distraction.

I have a set of photos taken over Christmas posted at Flikr

Now back to work.
