The brothers Grimm (2005, directed by Terry Gilliam)

Wonderful fairy tale figures in this movie that is for sure, but the movie itself is not a fairy tale, it is an adventure in a dark wood.  In this regard it is worthwhile, but not enchanting.

Riders in the forest

… during a walk in ‘het Mollendaalbos’ next to ‘het Meerdaalwoud’  and together good for 1319 ha. (in Flanders this is BIG) of very beautiful forest.  So now and then, during the 8,5 km. walk (Mollendaalpad), you meet some other people : you mostly hear them before you see them : a group following the guide, two friends knowing the forest by heart (what paths shall we follow today), a couple without a map (they forgot it in the car but the man trusts on his sense of orientation and the woman trusts the man), step aside for the horse riders (very friendly turning their horse for a picture), … It is all very relaxing.

Lot

Het is niet prettig als het je LOT is om te behoren tot een LOT bomen want dan ga je waarschijnlijk voor de bijl. 

Difficult to translate : It’s not funny when it is your destiny (lot) to be marked as belonging to a lot trees because that probably means you will be chopped.

Suppose WE humans are marked too about when we have to go.  You know : the idea of predestination and everything is determined, but we don’t know it !!! Creepy … the spirit of Halloween.

The beautiful Oak walk (8,5 km)

in het Zoniënwoud, a forest in Flanders with a majority of  Beech, is one of the possible paths you can walk to get a forest feeling : fluttering leaves and leaves rustling under your feet, an amazing amount of  toadstool species in a cathedral of trees.

Pump it up !

Kallo : caught in the cables of  electricity pylons : it keeps disturbing the view.  Would nobody have thought of that before they started ? I suppose such cables can be put underground as well ?

View on Kallo made in “het Groot Rietveld” (the Big Reed field), nature reserve not only for protecting nature, but for protecting people as well !! It helps Kallo to breathe in its enclosure by industry.  An enclosure that is stopped by action of the nature organization.  If not : industry would have moved up until it met the first houses of the village.  It was in this previous strategy that Totalfina placed oil tanks near the village (not visible on the picture, but standing on the left).  Those giant oil tanks contain “strategic reserves” : if the oil is expensive, this supply is pumped up.  Once it was a fact that nature would surround Kallo,  the presence of the oil tanks (often causing smell nuisance) was questioned, but it did not result in a displacement.  Who cares, right ? And now a disaster happened : 40 million liters of oil flowed out of a tank because of a crack.  Pump it up, guys !  And dear inhabitants : close your windows and wear a dust mask when you are in the port area.  I don’t know yet where it all flowed in, but this does NOT look good (probably an understatement) for the brooks and the soil, not to mention : the amphibians and the fish.  Let’s hope it did not flow into het Groot Rietveld (the nature reserve : the Big Reed field). 

This opinion is assimilated in the oil leak news item on Kanaal 3 (regional televison) today.

At least that is what they said, but I did not have the possibility for an interview and so, nothing was said about it.  Words without images are not a television option, so I conclude.

Traveling

People and containers on ships, Chinese mitten crabs (Chinese wolhandkrab) and other water creatures on the bottom of ships, diseases on people and animals, and for a short distance : starlings on cows. 

Picture : Schor Ouden Doel (brackish marches and mud flats in Doel)
