After heavy medication on Thursday, I still had hope. But then it happened quickly. Well, Bilbo left this life to become stardust or enjoy the golden beagle hunting grounds. :-( I'll never forget him and will walk our #BilboPaths keeping in my heart what he taught me about nature, love and the joy of life. I keep up a new "Veterinary Bills Goal" because the clinic earned fat with the end ... And I thank you so much for all your help, comments and compassion!
I am Petra van Cronenburg, a journalist, paper artist and nature lover. Loving nature is the thread connecting these interests: my podcast NatureMatchCuts, my art (for sale and workshops), and writing and telling stories. Beagle mix Bilbo is my best teacher for reconnecting with nature. You support this work and the vet bills for my 10 yrs old dog. Listen to NatureMatchCuts, the podcast from the intersections of science and nature writing, cultural knowledge and art directly broadcasting from a French national park. NatureMatchCuts is a podcast exploring marvels of biodiversity and fascinating cultural heritage. Get the awe through an inspiring change of perspective as flora, fauna, and landscapes become actors and storytellers. And join me to see how art can be inspired by nature and even become a statement, from visible mending to art journals and paper art.
