While this is our first day of ‘free circulation’,
it’ll probably be a while before I visit my favorite hill.
So, I’m still looking back to the days I walked these paths.
and wonder how it looks today.
a year ago.


and I couldn’t resist that:

Waiting for the Sun

The Doors

Enjoy the days


stay safe 🏑

  1. The hill is gorgeous and I have a hunch it’ll look just as beautiful when you’re able to take a walk again along its green pastures. I think we’re going to take it slow, too, regarding the relaxed rules. I’m afraid people will jump back into “yesterday’s normal” and the numbers will rise again. Fingers crossed. Stay well, my friend, and big hugs, Lauren 🌻🌻🌻

    • I know… I’m also afraid people will go back to ‘normal’. Eventhough lockdown’s lifted, I’m still taking precautions and avoiding moving about unless necessary, so the hill will have to wait a while. πŸ˜‰
      Big hugs to you, my dear Lauren and you all stay safe too!🌷🌺🌸🌺🌷

  2. One of the last Doors lps I got into. Taped on a shiny Maxell c-60 (remember those?) and listened in pristine nature… which was in stark contrast to the brooding, dreamlike atmosphere of the tune. I think Unknown Solider is on that tape. Or maybe it was another with some overlap? I don’t remember!

    I understand your unwillingness to leap back out. It’s like being in an incubator. We must take baby steps at first, I guess. πŸ™‚

    • Yes it is from that album.
      I remember those and BASF, TDK and even some Nakamichi! I was a diehard fan of tapes even long after cds.
      Baby steps i think is the safest way to go… especially after all this effort. πŸ˜‰

  3. Ohh, I adore Jim Morrison! Fab song for now!
    Great pics, Marina. It will be amazing when you can climb that hill again.
    We are not open yet. Construction sites are just now allowed, and garden centres along with food and drug stores. Mask wearing is all the rage, for intelligent people. Oh yeah, I wear one, and I carry hand sanitizer.
    I made my own mask, and found a couple of packs with 10 in each pack at an Asian Grocery.

    The beach across the street is closed, but people go anyway, and they don’t distance. Scary! Guess I won’t be going to the beach. I’m heading out for my first alley walk since March 25, tomorrow or Thursday. The alley is safer than the street, anyway. I hope other people haven’t figured that out. Don’t know if I’ll find any art, but who knows what artists might have been up to in the nights!
    Also, I’m not straying far from my hood.
    Keep safe!!

    • I know… even though we’re open, masks are a must, at least in crowded places and transport. I also wear gloves. Hand sanitizers were always in my bag so that hasn’t changed for me. Funny thing I heard about beaches is that they are planning to put plexiglass dividers!!!!πŸ™„πŸ€” Eventhough we’re open I’ve been avoiding places with people unless necessary.
      I’m glad to hear you’re also being cautious. I hope you do find more great art in your hood!
      You too keep safe!
      Love and many hugs

  4. The one thing about this crazy situation is we are all living the same thing the world over. We are all “waiting for the sun”! Lovely images, Marina. And I hadn’t heard that song for the longest time.

  5. Beautiful images… And nature no doubt is still blooming waiting for us to take in her beauty… I am so thankful for our own piece of nature and safe space of retreat..
