I work 18 hours a day but there is never enough time for everything I
need and want to do. Perhaps your life is similar.
Currently, I am updating the Lexiline.com pages to a uniform
standard, while at the same time working on the megalithic materials.
Among other things, to my great astonishment, several months ago I
discovered gigantic bird carvings on the sides of the slopes of the
Moselle River Valley - right where I live. I have been looking at
these slopes for years and had never seen a thing. But just as the
hills turned green this spring, the funny shape of the way the
vineyards are cut here caught my attention. Sure enough - there were
more such figures all the way down the River from Traben-Trarbach
nearly to Enkirch. These carvings are out of solid stone (the stone
here is slate and fairly easy to work). Now vineyards grow on these
already crumbled surfaces. These rock carvings must date back at
least 5000 years. Recall - the Magdalenians lived near here and we
have numerous megalithic sites in the area. More later.
