On that beautiful walk with Anna and Niko around the frozen lake, (which by the way is The Alexandra Lake) we saw this group of people doing this ….
I have no idea what they were doing but it looked so mysteriously-evilly-magically-artfully, beautiful!!! It looked almost sacred! There was a mystical feeling! There was something poetic … I wanted to walk on the frozen water too and embrace the sunset. But Anna, claiming the ice is slippery (yeah right) didn’t want to walk on my lake. So, since I was there for the dog walk, I passed on the, almost out of body, almost religious, experience on my lake and continued the dog walk.
In one familiar path I saw an old friend.
Remember him, the Evil tree?
We first met in 1995 on a mushroom-picking day with my sister. I have been visiting this guy quite often through the years. And now he broke:(
Either he finally gave in to the heavy snow or some useless prick jumped on him and broke him. (in which case I hope who ever it was they break all the limbs and shit themselves for a year). I am hoping it just gave in. He was dead for more than a decade now, yet he was standing there with his strange arms hugging the sky.
Now, there is a strange thing about this park. Remember the old dead tree buy the brook? The one who’s roots looked like a Sea Horse? Well here is a reminder. This is Shelley the Sea Horse Tree
(take a close look at the roots)
(there is also a small video with Shelley from 2006 Here)
And now look at the Evil tree, after it broke, on a close up.
It looks like a Shark!!!
I have to note that this park, back in the ice age used to be under water.
