I´ve decided to start writing in Norwegian, and I´ll do so at the address Morgentaake (morning fog). Thanks for all contact here at the list of lights, and welcome to read (you could try google translate it) Norwegian, or just watch the images I´ll post, at Morgentaake.

Private road

Private road. Sometimes the content of a message is less interesting than the packaging and surroundings. By the way, “private” doesn’t necessary mean “keep out”. It could mean “coffee at the kitchen table”. (We use this road all the time …)

Pimpin up the annual report

An annual report doesn’t have to look as boring as it often is I thought, and drew some chaptering drawings. We’ll see if it helps.

They have me, again

I´m soon to be a true HBO fan. So much great – and diverse – stories told at one place. After a couple of Vikings-episodes I thought it was good but maybe not something I´d necessarily watch everything of. But tonight after episode 5 I´m lost. It is very captivating. The actors didn´t interest me much until this fifth episode, I needed to get to know them it seems. Now I´ve done some reading and I found that Ragnar Lothbrok is played by an Australian, Travis Fimmel. I have a soft spot for Australians after living in Sydney for a couple of years. His character is quite fascinating. So is the young monk Athelstan played by George Bladgen, and Floke played by Gustaf Skarsgård. And I really love that the shield maiden Lagertha (Katherine Winnick) is at least as tough as the men.

I also highly recommend The Newsroom. It´s not many episodes (I suppose more are in the making?) but the ones made give a fascinating insight in a stressful office filled with interesting people. Game of Thrones is my favourite at the time although The Wire stands for me as the best series made as a whole so far. That was like reading five extremely good books.

I love this life of streaming, soon all my DVD´s will find their way down to the storeroom to join all my CD´s I guess. Streaming and an old fashion record player of vinyl, that would be perfect.

A light exists in spring

A light exists in spring
Not present on the year
At any other period.
When March is scarcely here

A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me.

Then, as horizons step,
Or noons report away,
Without the formula of sound,
It passes, and we stay:

A quality of loss
Affecting our content,
As trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a sacrament.

No cabin, oranges, sunglasses or fancy gear, but perfect weather and silky tracks.
