"Back in the 'forest' in the 'woods' to meditate and read some classical Chinese poems in Chinese. I ate a mandarine and planted the seed back into the soil near my tree. Felt good to be back in the 'cabin'. I realized it was exactly 3 years ago that I slept in it for a few days in Rotterdam, my son Colin was also with me.
