Our local beauty spot is once again available, with the weather perfect and Ilona-Ruby on the very slow but positive path to recovery, this is our progress so far. Music is from my number 1 favourite album by Mike Oldfield: The Songs of Distant Earth. Poignantly titled track: Only Time Will Tell.
The Mastbos is a nearby forest in the city of Breda, it has a spectacular landscape and is a great place to go for a gentle stroll.
This video was shot on one of the sunny days a few weeks after Ilona-Ruby’s last radiotherapy. It was good to be outside again.
The music is composed for this video, its everything and its nothing. Inspired by Mike Oldfield, it leans heavily on some of his greatest riffs. Enjoy: The Lake.
After a year of self isolation to keep Ilona-Ruby safe during her chemo and radiotherapy, we finally took our first steps back out into the world- keeping it very local as Ilona-Ruby’s stamina was shot to pieces. Slowly but surely, we got a breath of fresh air and a moment to live once again in our own back garden.
June 2019, just before our 21st Anniversary she was given the all-clear after a very testing 6 months of darkness and uncertainty. We are glad the winter is over.
The music is a piece called Strawberry Fields and is a reflection of the awakening from darkness. Please enjoy our back garden with us.
