A Serious Case of Cricotine Withdrawal

Naples Cricket ClubSo, I’ve been having these dreams lately.

There’s this one dream where I’m running down a lawn chasing this little red ball without ever being able to reach it.

In the other dream I’m just walking at a leisurely pace and then, all of a sudden, I have this urge to bend over quickly and swing my right arm over my head in a forward motion.

And then there is the one where a little red object is coming at me at high speed and I try to swash it away with a heavy stick. Only to make that object pop up high into the air and then hitting me on the head.

Anybody any idea what these dreams could mean?

I’m afraid it could be a serious case of CRICOTINE WITHDRAWAL!

The time during rain and twilight, when sky reflection on wet roads creates a film-like atmospere. The reflection of traffic lights & head lights are mixing colors and the faster cars on this intersection become ghosts in a moment’s time.

Kunstpause #36 - Resident Orchid in Black and White by #pauli
Christian brought us a new house mate: our resident orchid. It’s beautiful and I had to shoot a picture of it. In black/white it makes such a timeless impression. It will majestically reign over our household.

After a long time, I went for a run on the beach, and during a highly needed rest in the shade of the Naples Pier I saw this White Heron, the bird of the nations snowbirds, having lunch in the shade, too. I like how the high contrast filter enhances the shadows of the foot prints of other invisible Beach Creatures and of course how the water turn really blue…
