The mysterious world of MONICA CROESE

♥ Falling in love

Hi wonderful blogfriends! So you notice, i'm back. The holidays was one of the lonelinest i ever experienced, but therefore interesting, confronting and clearing my feelings and thoughts. And i have made some new drawings that please me a lot. But i'll post them one by one in a new post.

I fell in love with Bretagne (Brittany) big time. I was never before in this area but it's so great, amazing, wonderful. It stole my heart. For interested in Celtic history, I loved the celtic influences you could sense everywhere. I never saw those 'open' towers of the churches, but it looks gorgeous. I love the rough nature, the huge rocks on the beach, the menhirs and dolmen that tickles my imagination. We had a wonderful view on a bay from our tent. I loved to stand on this hill, the scent of the fresh sea, listening to the sound of the waves and the seagulls, the wind playing with my hair and thoughts, i imagining that i'm a celtic lady searching the sea for the boat of her lover. Nearby our camping there were the remains of a celtic community, so that's where my fantasy comes from. ;-)
The weather where we were was warm, but with soft rain and always a wind. Exactly how i love it. My boys loved to climb the rocks with their father. And the youngest one was tickled by the history of Normandy (we were there the first days of our holidays) so he was sometimes a soldier, hiding in the dunes or on the rocks.
I have reloaded my batteries, hoping to safe this energy for awhile.
It's good to be back though as well and i'll pay you all a visit in time.



This view i will miss a lot. I already do. Standing there everyday, dreaming, feeling peaceful.

Beautiful rocks

The 'open' towers that amazed and entchanted me.


MENHIR

That special old language.

Hello Katelen, tnx for your nice comment.

Yes -J., Bretagne was very enchanting. Nice that you're happy for me. I appreciate that a lot!

Hi Jasmine,
it's so good to see you here again also. I think Bretgane will pop up in my drawings at times. :-)

Haha lieve ALeks,
funny what you say about Asterix and Obelisk, because my partner and i said to our boys: "Hee guys, now we're in Asterix and Obelisk land!" Emil looked at his older brother as if to say; they're crazy. "Mom, Asterix & Obelisk are cartoon figures, they didn't excist for real." Haha.
Liefs......

Thank you very much César, best regards for you also.

And i wish you all a great weekend!
