Starting a trip 9.11.12
Heading back to my ol' country Norway. It'll be great.
I'll write some updates here, with some pictures.
I encourage you to comment!
I'll head to Trondheim, my birth place.
I'll also try to find time to visit Hell which is in the same area.

It's getting cold there, so no more shorts and sandals for a while ;-)
Check back!

I'd like to.....

.... carve in wood.

I like wood.

I like the smell.
The feel to it's smooth surface after grinding, sanding and buffing it, forming it into a velvet like touch.

And off course, the origin of wood; the tree.

They stand there, embracing the sunlight.
Growing, firmly, making the statement of BEING there.

Hit a tree with your head, and you will see what I mean.

Wood is lasting quite a while.
A few hundred years.
Maybe a thousand.
Or several thousand, if the conditions were right.

I'm not aiming that high though.

If I could make something out of wood, and someone could still handle it in, say, 450 years from now, I'd be delighted.

When? Now?

So why?
What difference does it make?
Say 450 years after the first 450 years?


Still; I'd like to carve some wood......

Cheese, it's been a couple of years already. Maybe I'll pick it up again.
Spent some time photo hunting today and ended up with a memory for myself at least...

Think I have a love/hate-relationship with this part of the year. Tho, I think it's mostly love. Today we had close to 75 F. The apple trees are blooming and all is good. Then, on Monday, the prediction says 39 F as a high, and a lousy 30 F as a low. Even colder the morning after. Maybe it's just normal, and nothing to fuss about. But I'd really like to see some apples on the trees......
Anyway, small optimistic flowers brighten up all over these days....

Hah! You can't blame religious services to be stupid and without any sense of profit making business.
Welcome to the information age prayer service from, yes, the "Information Age Prayer".
It seems to be an application making written prayers to sounding like, uhm, real voice, and with direct connection to the god dingy.
The god is so, uhm busy, he can't really hear the difference between your trembling real voice and the fake computerized voice. So, there you go. Just pay up, lean back and watch as your prayers come true or what the hell prayers are supposed to be/do/become.
But it gets better. The service donates 10% to a charitable cause. Wow! Did I just say Wow? I meant WOW!!! The service shows real grace. Or business-manship?
The absolute, hands down, fabulous news are; this service works for ANY religion! Yes, be you protestant, catholic, jew, muslim, other, or even unaffiliated, this service is for you.
But, here's the REAL big news. I'll beat that service donation by 10 - ten %. They offer 10 %, I offer 20 %. They offer 40 %, I offer 50 %! My limit is at 90 %. Well, that's for your choice. But there is more. I offer a 100% donation to a service of MY choice should the "Information Age Prayer" offer a 90 % donation to their donation. Come to think of it, I think I'll keep at least 50 % of the donation amount to a recipient of my choice. That's how generous I am. So, send me money, and I'll pray to any god of your choice at any time of your choice. Just send me the money. No fake it here. I will do the prayer. Trust me. SEND ME THE MONEY!

So, the week end is behind us. Spring has officially arrived, and so have the purple martins. I am in utter awe just thinking of these birds, their abilities and beauty. I am very grateful towards them, and honored to have them in the houses in our back yard. More about the Purple Martins later, but here's a picture of a couple of them taken today. They are real chatterboxes.

I'm adding yet another Phlox picture. So much beauty to see these days.
The picture was taken in the park area nearby the river as Eddie, the dog, and I took a stroll there Sunday morning. Mainly to avoid other people. I love it there. But well back home I realized the area is shared with lots of ticks. I don't really want to get very close to them, so no more river walks for a while. Maybe next winter?
