I wish I could discover that underneath this seemingly endless everydayness of everybody’s mind, there would be a vast, juicy wildness just waiting to be set free and spring into the world like magic firework in a dark night sky.
That there would be someone authentic and real and fiery underneath that grey skin and those dark rings under their eyes.Read More
I wish to create my own, vibrant and glowing business.
I wish to be able to create lovely, enriching and healing digital products, and that these will be dearly loved and appreciated by the ones who buy them (and I wish there will be many buyers!).Read More
I’ve always been deeply in love with literature. I spent a lot of time with my nose in a book when I was younger, and as I grew up, my love for fiction took a break and was replaced with a love for subject-oriented prose instead. Now, I’m back to loving (and craving) both. Maybe that’s my inner Gypsy and my inner Victorian balancing themselves out again.Read More
Warning: Linguistic nerding ahead!
When I studied linguistics at university college a few years ago, there was this one thing that got repeated over and over again. The word is only a word; it’s just sounds put together to make a unit, and that unit is only a representation of something. The word “cat” is not THE cat, but a symbol and a representation of the common idea of what a cat is. And this is where communication gets tricky.

The calendar is telling me that I’ve had a month off, just about. One third of my summer holiday has gone by already, and I haven’t got much to show for it. The two novels in my head are still resided only in my head. The children’s book I finished this winter is still not published, or even translated from Norwegian to English. Both my blogs are neglected, my home is a mess. In short, everything I planned to do this summer is still out in the blue somewhere.
My soul remembers a time
spent with my sisters
