Yonder in the Belgian woods??

Saturday was beautiful and I decided to take a solo excursion into the woods on the outskirts of town. It's a quick 25 min transit ride and once you enter the park you are completely transported out of the city. I just brought my ipod and a notebook and went on a hike, danced around to Yonder Mountain String Band when no one was watching, and wrote for about an hour on a downed tree. It was beautiful and exactly what i needed. I love living in Brussels, but sometimes the city can get to you. The beggers, winos, graphite, and endless blocks of cobblestone can put you into urban overload. I'm so glad Kathleen suggested the woods for me. I know I'll be back many times to adventure there in the next few months.

The following video is intended to make you smile and laugh at me. All of you love my quarky dancing so much!

Hi Amanda, I just got connected to your blog and am sending you lots of love as you discover the world! Your video made me feel a little younger today. And, for that, I am grateful.

I realize we do not know each other well, so I am pleased to learn a little more about you through your eloquent writing. I can see you are making memories you will be able to treasure in the years to come. Embrace and enjoy!

Much love,
Aunt Gail Rissler
