Yesterday in the evening Ž and I went shopping. Not any kind of shopping, it was rather winter gear shopping. I bought my first Gore-Tex jacket 16 years ago in New Zealand, and have worn it since then to this day. Fairydown then, and obviously Macpac today. Things change. And I needed a new jacket. On our way to the store I noticed this light in one of the old houses: A shield was made of a piece of cloth lined with lace. It looked beautiful. Today I know that lots of work had to be put in making this lace.
Tomorrow I will be having a high dose of heliotherapy somewhere in the Julian Alps. And I will test my new jacket too. I can hardly wait.
