Tiny drops of water from the waterfall Vøringsfossen creating a cloud rising from the bottom of the canyon, more than a hundred meters below. The picture was taken last Sunday, on our way home from Bergen.
The spring is here, and many birds are looking for a new home. I try to help them a little by putting up some accomodation. I had larger birds in mind for this house, but the nuthatch could hardly wait till I had taken my ladder away before he moved in. Here he’s admiring the view from his new house. I call him Zorro because of his black mask, of course.
I love baking bread. Working with the dough, sensing the beautiful smell from the oven filling the house, patiently waiting, and then the reward. Home-baked bread, still warm inside, with blackcurrant jam. Mmmm.
…who wants to sing like a Norwegian!!??
There is a well-known song in Norway about a boy called Hjalmar who tries to sing in English without knowing the language particularly well. Now this guy in the video (a Norwegian radio host, whose real name is Rune Nilson) has turned it all around and made it into a song about an American who wants to sing in Norwegian (and obviously doesn’t know the language very well, either)! I don’t know about you, but he makes me laugh (and tap my feet)..
You must live in the present,
launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.
Fools stand on their island of opportunities
and look toward another land.
There is no other land; there is no other life than this.
