Not only did I learn a new Dutch word but I finally found out what to call the trees that we have been seeing all around our region, but never took the time until yesterday to ask or find out.
I promised myself, after moving here in the Netherlands, I will take time to live consciously, not only pause to be fully aware of life, but write and share what I write about the life I am blessed with, as a sort of daily thanks. Unlike when I was in Germany where I always thought, there will be time enough to do everything once this or that is settled.
Well, I guess this is how my various 365 projects is helping do - live, pause, write and give thanks. Simple life. :)
In another previous post, from the 10th of January, entitled, Biking Along an Ever-Changing Landscape... I shared images of our bike path on our way to school and back.

We can read together about pollarding, which I looked up tonight, over the weekend, perhaps when the weather is good on a Sunday bike ride. It is much better to learn with others!
