*Slowly welcoming the new year & floating through winter

{Music: With You – Matteo  De Grandis}

I forgot to post my latest youtube video here as well, it's from end of January/start of February:
A little later than usual I started to welcome the new year and film a little every now and then. Even though I am longing for spring earlier than ever, I still enjoy to float through those distinct winter days. We had mistiness like in autumn and some frost every now and then but also some sunshine for the soul, I had my first spring flowers on the windowsill and enjoyed the calmness of the mornings.

*holding the pieces together

A lot of burdening things are happening lately. It's an emotional very demanding time.
It decreases my joy to blog, because it feels senseless somehow. To distract my mind a bit I started to do jigsaw puzzles again. I loved to do them as a child with my family and also alone.
I just came back from a nature walk, we did not have any snow in February and I also don't think that we will get any this month still. But we had a little frost every now and then and misty days like in autumn, but today the sun was out for a moment and the mood of the clouds was stunning. It really felt like walking in a painting of the great masters of art.

*ceramic dish set

This dish set had to wait the longest for being finished, I started them back in summer when the Roman fennel was in full bloom. It's such a nice thought to have tea in one the cups that comes from the same fennel plant like I made the imprints with.

*Winter ceramics & icy forest streams

{Music: Visitors – Praam + Maisie Lee · Blue Dot Sessions}

Due to the circumstances I set up the Christmas tree in the new year, but I did not want to skip it, because I had made those little clay birds for it and I was curious how they will look on the tree.
In January we visited a few times a frozen forest stream. I loved the ice formations on the surface and the sounds of the water. So refreshing and relaxing at once! Hope you enjoy it too!

*frozen roses

Still struggling so much with neuralgia, it makes it hardly possible to do anything and with the strong storms that we are heaving, I can not go outside, the cold wind triggers the nerves even more. I wish I could just be out in nature. But instead I go through some of my winter pictures and leave you some more of them here. One of my favorite ones is the one with the frozen roses. Aren't they amazing to bloom like this in winter?

*a world of great suffering & beauty

The end of January felt heavy, we found one of the roes (that is living near our home) dead directly in front of our garden. It's sight made me cry so much. When I had a closer look I saw that one of its hind legs had an open fracture. We contacted the huntsman to collect its corpse. He said it got for sure hit by a car and that it's sad that so many people do not report it when it happens. The roe had to perish miserably without the hope of quick release. This thought is tormenting me.
Afterwards in the evening I plied Ronald to cut my hair, about 18 cm are off and every time it fascinates me how unburdening it feels! As if a huge burden falls off instantly. I really needed that!
And now, let's welcome February with posting some pictures of my last film that I picked up yesterday. I was very curious about the outcome, because it's full of winter pictures and I think it's not disappointing at all!
