If it is ebb in your life, it is a good time for beachcombing

You need both in your life; high mountains and deep valleys. Periods of activity alternated with periods of rest. There is not much to beachcombing if it has not stormed hard and the flood has carried the harvest from the sea on the beach. But only at low tide, when the turbulent water recedes, those treasures – and unfortunately, more and more often the waste that man has first dumped in nature himself – become visible.

These days we reflect on what lies behind us and what awaits us. There will have to be thought again about the order of things, and about what is in which removal box 😉 After unpacking, we will have to reorder, clean up and dispose of. We are going to do handyman chores in and around the house again, but now for ourselves, and no longer for ‘the next residents’. We will invest our energy in learning Danish, deepen our knowledge in permaculture and make a plan for our garden. But we will – because we can do that now – adapt to the rhythm of nature. The rhythm of the tide, the rhythm of summer and winter, of sowing and harvesting. And at every moment of low tide we hope to find something beautiful on the beach, brought by the sea.
