Let’s begin with the bad: Something happened to my external memory disk #orwhatyoucallit and all the photos i have taken since easter, seem to be gOnE…
Good news: I’m returning to blogging, because I want to keep my memories somewhere safe. See this WordPress, I’m putting a lot of trust inn you! You better be around in 50 years.
An update is in order: I no longer live in Oslo. My new home lies 70 degrees north. It’s a wonderful and weird city, Alta.
because you DO see northern lights here
and also the midnight sun (this is like 10PM)
soon it will be dark 24/7, but now…sunsets ❤
Prehistoric carvings, what is your purpose?
Here’s pretty much what’s left of my Alta-photos
( Photo note: Rain adds drama to everything = ❤ )
I’ve been consumed with work lately. Written like that it might seem dreary for people who don’t enjoy their work, but for me: It’s WONDERFUL!
I only wish the days were longer… while they’re literally getting shorter. Høstjevndøgn in Norway falls on 23. September. It’s when the day and night are equally long. (Called equinox in English, according to Google Translate.)
And on the Thursday closest to this date, a magical event finds place to remind us that the dark season is full of light.
4,000 torches light up the Akerselva river.
Akerselva is decorated for the night walk.
In the dark, you find artsy stuff – like this poem.
Some places along the river are very dark. Most of the electric lightning is off for this night.
Choir in the dark.
Join the shadow play.
Dancing in the dark
More about this event – yeah, #2lazy2write
On the road trip through Florida, one place especially, turned out to be a wonderful treat. I didn’t have any expectations when I insisted on a visit to St. Pete, I just wanted to make a quick stop in the city that has the same name as the one where I was born.
It was great! I ate the best Indian food EVER (@MoonUnderTheWater) after strolling the beautiful avenues and visiting the Salvador Dali Museum.
And some Dali quotes:
Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.
The only difference between me and a madman is that I’m not mad.
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
Alone under the skies, There’s a city by the sea, Å(aa)lesund, Miami 4.7
I bet you knew this was coming ^__^
