Happy New Year!

The alarm sounded.

I got up, went to the bathroom,


rinsed my mouth out,

and drank two glasses of water.


I switched the TV on.

BR, naturally.


Nina Winkler.


I did my thing.

Panoramabilder would be next.

Comforting, somehow.

Like Alpine mountains.


reliability, of sorts.

We seek stasis

and maintenance,

of youth and sanity,

in this temporal realm

of the transient,

of transience.

We try.

We don’t want to die.

We don’t anything we care about to die.

We try.

We do what we can.

We eschew publicly-stated plans,

like resolutions and manifestos,

knowing “the other” will use it as ammunition,

cause for demolition.

No fireworks, please,

use the expense more wisely!





Happy New Year.


Yes, I know it could be said that I’m “spinning my wheels”, so as to say. I feel it too, and it is most frustrating. Confusing fragments, life, death, memories, and strands of in/sanity. Soon though, I’ve got to believe, something will click, in a good way, and things will come together. Yes, believe.

Children’s Day in Trondheim.

Nordic Combined.

Shrill voices pass judgement on the immigration debate:

they’re all screaming for Norway!


Each child as enthusiastic as the other,

apparently all glad to be part of the collective,

humanity in the snow. 


Of course, they’re children, too young to have been poisoned by life,

disappointment and disenchantment…

But if this is today,

and happy memories are more powerful than vitriol and diatribe,

then maybe there is hope for tomorrow.
