Last friday I did get out into the woods, but in a very different way than usual. In the village I live there are quit a number of traditions and one of them is to have a charcoal kiln every year at the beginning of autumn. To me this is completely new and I was invited to witness the lighting of this kiln and to be introduced to the team that does this work. The idea behind that is that I, in time, will learn this old skill, too and to take over from the older guys in due time.
