Drugs Have Me Losing My Photographs As Well As My Mind…

During the 2016 Easter weekend, Family Kiwidutch visited Texel, an island in the province of Nord Holland (North Holland).

Usually when I document on this blog, trips that we have made, I naturally start at the beginning and go as chronologically as possible to the end.

On this occasion I misplaced a folder of photographs, an error of concentration, a side effect of the pain medication that I take.

Two days ago I found the photos in a folder about Dutch buildings, so what was going on in my head when I did that, goodness only knows!

I’m slotting this in now with the idea that “better later than never” is a better principle to follow than to leave it out completely.

To be slotted between blog dates of February 10th and February 11th 2017, these photographs offer our first impressions of the island, the glimpse of the airport and Air Force and War Museum that lead us to rewarding and memorable visit later on, the landscape and architecture that define island life.
I’ve mislaid files before: usually I am not so lucky and they do not turn up later, or in some cases, ever. I know that this is a very human error but in the last four years the dosages of powerful pain medications has risen and the “human errors” have risen dramatically in direct relationship with the pain medication rises. I suppose that the summary
is: “Don’t do drugs folks, they mess with your brain” (or in my case, what’s left of it). I’d like nothing better than to come off this medication, if only solutions could be found to fix my foot and do so. In the meantime, here are our first impressions of Texel.
