In the afternoon, Conny and I continues our search
for border poles along the Vrijdijk. We found
the following border poles (after visiting pole 26-III again):
At 14:32, pole 26-IV.
At 14:41, pole 27.
At 14:50, pole 29.
At 15:03, pole 31.
At 15:06, pole 31-I.
At 15:20, pole 31-IV.
At 15:33, pole 31-V.
At 15:38, pole 31-VI.
At 15:44, pole 31-VII.
When walking back, we searched for the poles we had missed (28, 30, 31-II,
and 31-III), but we could not find them probably due to the heavy overgrowth
that is typical for the end of the summer. Conny picked some elderberries and
made some jam out of it at home.
During our evening walk, Conny found a chestnut and gave it to me. It is the first chestnut of the year that I
have encountered. On a side note, the leaves of little chestnut tree have all
turn brown already. I should note that the leaves of the larger chestnut trees
in our garden are also turning brown.
In the afternoon, I visited the GOGBOT
festival, which this year has the title: Infocalypse Now: Time to
Recalibrate Reality. I first got my 'Deep State 9' passport with which I
could visit the different festival location. I found the following exhibits
This evening, Conny and I went to see the movieDune:
Part One. It is an impressive movie. The world shown in this movie feels
very realistic to what you get from the book. The special effects, the visuals
and the music are stunning. The movie follows the plot of the book quite good.
There are no great deviations and the deviations that are there are the kinds
you would expect from an adaptation. Especially in the first parts there were
some scenes that touched me emotionally, mostly because I knew what was
coming, but towards the end it felt a little hurried. I felt that the director
was trying to get too much of the tension from the visuals instead from the
While doing some pruning in the garden this afternoon, I discovered a seed pod
on our magnolia with one seed, if I am not
mistaken. I fear it is still too green to harvest and I decided to leave it
untouched and only remove it after all leaves have fallen.
Conny and I took our bikes to go walking, but decided
to bike a little further than we at first had intended. We ended up walking
around the Smalenbroek estate. The estate has a Sequoiadendron giganteum, which is about 25 meter tall. We also came
across one of the art works of the Textiel Festival Twente 2021, the work
by Meg Mercx.
