sunshine, roses, vacation – what more do you need?
I feel the need to write something too
My Facebook feed is bouncing from drowning me with all the sad stories of the world to bathing me with sunlight. The summer in Norway has been incredibly sunny and warm this year, a phenomena most Norwegians have managed to share on FB, in one way or another. Dream summer – drømmesommer. And it lasts, while my feed otherwise grows darker.
What will I remember of this period? The flowering parks and afternoon barbecues, or the distant wars and fleeting moments of melancholy?
Two things are certain: I had a higher opinion of people in general when we couldn’t comment and share news stories, and I felt the world was a better place before I started following the news.
I didn’t check the news yesterday and I’m definitely doing my best to avoid them today.
Amsterdam looks beautiful! The sun is shining. My mom is visiting me this weekend, with my stepfather and I should be running out the door now to meet them, since they are probably finishing their first Dutch breakfast around this time. So ‘til later!
