The Calm after the Storm

We live in a country with few large scale natural disasters. No typhoons or cyclones,  no  volcano eruptions threatening to wipe out entire cities, no earthquakes to speak of (in front of Californians, Japanese or others living on top of faults between constantly shifting tectonic plates) and no heath waves in the real, southerly sense

Off guard

Sometimes, in the middle of going about what you thought was  your business, your life…,  you are caught unawares, by surprise… by events, by people, by  plain old destiny, or, if it turns out to be a positive thing, by what I like to look upon as synchronisms.

Election Time

Are you an abstainer? Er du en sofavelger?   Get off the coach! Sorry, English speaking friends. The video below may be difficult to understand for non-Scandinavians…, but the message is this: Whenever there is an election, in your country, your state, your municipality: VOTE! Or forever hold your tongue… Be sure to watch the


Fortunately, I not only have generous people in my life (see yesterday’s blog), but also people who keep me in check when I, occasionally:-), go a little overboard… …may be what I was talking about yesterday was angels. And not many people feel they can live up to that standard. (If they do, they should

They meet your thoughts and ideas with an open mind, and when criticise do it constructively, affectionately and with respect. They spur you on, challenge you to step out of
