Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

This week’s photo challenge is about the future:

We spend so much of our lives thinking back, or looking ahead, and even though a photo captures only one moment in time, with a bit of thought it can freeze the process of moving forward, or the promise of things to come. Your challenge this week is to seal one such moment in amber.

In a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says FUTURE TENSE.

I’m looking forward to seeing your visions of the future, daydreams, and wishes frozen in time.

Last year I chanced upon this interesting project of The Willowman, also known as land artist Will Beckers.

Land Art artist Will Beckers creates a completely unique natural environment called The Willowman project in the forests of the Floriade. This unique project is brought to life by the Willowman’s presence himself.

This Land Art project is more than just an artwork, it is a living environment that shows how we can go to a back to a basic existence, and live by nature’s natural cycle – cradle to cradle. During the project artist Will Beckers lives and works on location in his own installation. He lives in the tree huts he has created as an architect of nature.

It is the visitor’s interaction with his surroundings that brings the installation to life. The children who visit the project will help the artist to create another enormous work which will grow and develop during the Floriade. The Willowman’s domain will be expanded and every child visiting the Floriade can be a part of this.

A special project, right?

So here is my interpretation of the Future Tense. Because we need Mother Nature to keep the future safe for our children. And we especially need the children to keep Nature safe in the future! Read Jesper’s wish for our future:

I wish that humankind would not destroy nature anymore. Jesper.

Well, Jesper, I couldn’t agree more!

Posted in Health, Six Word Saturday

Yes, I confess: I’m an addict!

My Saturday in six words:

~ BLENDER BROKEN. IN SMOOTHIE WITHDRAWAL SHOCK. ~

130323blender

My morning ritual for the last six months involved bananas, pears, apples, kiwis, pineapple, grapes, strawberries, spinach, celery, Chinese cabbage, chicory, green salad, parsley, mint, water and linseed. Smooth and creamy fruit- and vegetable-drinks for breakfast. No more hypoglycemia downers, a calm belly and yes, even gradual weight loss. Plus it is healthy as hell heaven!

This morning the blender knifes were merrily making their rounds, when suddenly a weird sound screeched through my kitchen. I dived towards the blender and turned it off. Probably a piece of apple got stuck. Turning the blades was easy. Come on, sweet thing, do your job. More screeching and a bit of smoke…

My poor blender is no more. And my smoothie no smoothie. A sad mix of water and tiny bits of something was floating in the glass container. Tea and bread were the alternative.

Tomorrow I will go hunting for a new blender. Because I’m in smoothie withdrawal shock and don’t like that. Because I’m a smoothie-addict ever since I started last year. I even take them with me to work.

Have you ever made fruit-veggie (green) smoothies? Did/do you like them? 

Have a smooth weekend, all of you.
