The grace of a hawk

A commenter to this movie on YouTube wished hawks were like dogs so you could pet them when they do stuff like this. That’s what I was thinking! Birds of prey are both so beautiful and so graceful. Just how graceful is shown in this BBC video. I’m also fascinated by how feathers move in […]

Yo, Adrian!

35 years ago I saw “Rocky” for the second and last time—until now. I am surprised at how much I’ve forgotten about the movie, and what I did remember no longer matters. So many icons came out of this movie: The trumpet fanfare of the theme song, the personal triumph run up the front steps […]

Commuter mornings and musings

Three mornings in a row I have waited for the bus, feet growing cold from standing on snowy ground. I was attending a course in Flash in town. My usual routine of walking to work was switched to making sure I made it to the bus stop in time for my morning commute. Each morning […]

As luck would have it

Bergen. Winter. Rain. Snow. Rain. The rain could not melt the packed snow away. It could only turn it into the slickest ice. I tried to balance in the wind, but the wind caught my coat and I felt myself being pushed along – no way to stop, nothing to hold on to. I need […]

The next half

New Year’s Eve. The day when people are either scrambling to get food and champagne for the evening’s festivities or are contemplating what resolutions to make for the coming year – or both. For me, 2011 is the start of the next half century of my life. I was 50 in December. It was actually […]

Actually, I’m having fun

Ah, yes, once again a long hiatus. I still owe you guys my Normandie adventure, and I haven’t forgotten. The nice thing about the war is that writing about it has no time limit. (Is my excuse. đŸ™‚ ) Thing is, I’m having a collision of Fun Things to Do. I want to focus more […]

A weed is a flower

…that happens to be in the wrong place. Yesterday’s photo is a close-up of the sunflower that has surprised me. I started this summer with pansies in all my flower boxes, but they quickly died. One did manage to sow a seed, though, so I have a pansy plant in one flower box. Weeds took […]

A brief list of happy

Came in from the rain and met a co-worker who needed an umbrella for an errand outside. So he got to borrow mine. Nice to be able to help! Got on full elevator. Full because our building superintendents had a cart for moving small furniture in it. No place to stand around it was left, […]

Years

Probably a mistake to try to blog while tipsy, but I just got home (the photo was taken at 2:44 am!) from celebrating a co-worker’s 25th anniversary at work. I had my own 2 years ago. I had hoped that my co-worker’s anniversary party was as wonderful as mine, and since we all hung out […]
