Settling into a new home

So I got my own domain something like four years ago, and the stuff I have here is still in limbo. It’s like moving house: Taking everything I have in the old home, and trying to make it fit and function in the new one. Some things look fine, some don’t fit, some have no […]

Summer vacation to southern Norway July 2015

Ferry to Stord I never tire of taking ferries. A break in the driving, and a chance to get some fresh sea air. West coast landscape somewhere along the bus ride to southern Norway Lindesnes lighthouse is at Norway’s southernmost point, all of 2518 km from Norway’s northermost point, Nordkapp. Our first destination: Lindesnes The […]

Surrendering

Birch flowers I can see a change in the silhouette of the birch tree in front of my building. The naked branches have filled in with small, oblong flowers that look nothing like a blossom but that herald the renewal of life—and allergies for those so stricken. Winter has surrendered to Spring, Nature’s New Year. […]

Moonrise

Moonrise from my kitchen window (Trying to automate posting this photo led me into the land of IFTTT. I still don’t have automation, but I’ve acquired a new password to herd.)

Kind of sort of a Christmas letter

OK, so I didn’t write anything for a while here because, well, I didn’t like the other layout (this being a new setup and home for my blog). WordPress updated with a new one I felt like fiddling with, so here I am. I’m in consolidation mode. I probably should be shopping for Christmas presents, […]

Twilight zone

Looking north by northwest at 11:18 pm. We don’t have midnight sun at 60 degrees north. We have midnight twilight. The pink blush moves from northwest to north to northeast. I love this time of year!

The ho’oponopono adventure continues

Ever since I discovered the ho’oponopono practice of forgiveness and healing about 3 years ago, I have used it, pursued it, and experienced healings big and small. I have taught it to a few friends. To my delight, they have embraced it and discovered for themselves the instant peace that comes with cleaning (as using […]

Christmas 2013, Bergen, Norway

The norm for Bergen, Norway (at the end of the Gulf stream at 60N23, 5E20) is not a white Christmas, but a rainy one. Thank goodness for all the pretty lights! Happy holidays to all of you! GOD JUL!

Autumn outside my kitchen window

The photos don’t come fresher than this, the view from my kitchen window right now. It’s going to be an Indian Summer day!

So while I’ve been gone…

Interests keep changing. Or rather, focus does. I obviously still enjoy taking photographs, because I kept my camera busy during my vacation. But even photography requires inspiration—and weather that won’t ruin a camera. And so I let Wordless Wednesdays slide. I stopped forcing myself and let my blog rest, too. The nice thing about long […]
