Hi to all journal readers,

-Been nearly 3 weeks since the last Journal, but wasn’t feeling too well due pain in the neck, and last weekend the lower back started as well. But with the help of painkillers and anti-inflammatory agents feeling better today.

-Anyhow we managed last Saturday very early in the morning, to go to Antwerp in Belgium for some shopping, and race back to the border with Holland to be there around 10 for the opening of the Fantastyval festival at The Wouwse Plantage near the village of Roosendaal.

-At around 3 in the afternoon, my cervical vertebrae was getting painfull , and with 1 ½ hour drive too our house, we called it a day.

-Rest of the week was cumbersome, working with the pain , and therefor very tired so after work went straight to bed, woke up for diner watched some TV and back to bed again.

- today feeling a bit better and stopped with the painkillers and anti-inflammatory agents and feeling.

-So here the journal after 3 weeks of silence, and will start uploading some photo’s of fantastyval in the days to come !!

Blessed be and greetz len.

Personal Quote:

"The outcome of the Photograph depends largely, on the chosen subject and how it was taken, the camera itself is just a medium to register your idea's about the subject"
