Stjerner og steinar - a Norwegian poem

This is a picture of a poem printed on a wall in one of our airports. I loved it when I first saw it, and wanted to share it with you. It is beautifully written in Norwegian, but I will attempt to translate it for you - although I am sure I will not be able to do it just.

Stjerner og steinar
by Odveig Klyve

Stars and stones
are hidden beneath scabs and tissue
in our black fields
pushing up through the pores
stars and stones 
We lift stones
and get lured by
Our bodies are illuminated and heavy
Stars and stones by Odveig Klyve
(translated from Norwegian by myself)

Hide and seek......

So, Saturday night  - and the guys at work figure they want to play a trick on me. They hid my iPad TWICE tonight! This is where it was the last time I found it... I must admit this was rather inventive - and quite telling, too. Such a neat place to hide it, right? ❤

Do you see it?

It was a laugh - and I still do not know who did it. They all point fingers at someone else... Boys!

Something to relate to?

This is so true, in my personal opinion. I loved my cats and miss them terribly. The house still feels empty without them. Though I at least still have my books for comfort

Children of the Lamp - a tiny teaser

I was leafing through the first book of The Children of the Lamp-series, The Akhenaten Adventure, the other day. I wanted to share this quote/teaser with you as it truly is one of my favourites of all time.

Perhaps I might even get these words printed and put up on the wall back home one of these days... That is something worth considering, for sure.

"Welcome to my house," he said. "Enter freely of your own will and be sure to leave behind some of the happiness you bring to it."
by P. B. Kerr, p. 82

A little peek for you

Here is one of my old bookmarks - it is rather worn now, but I do love it.

There really is no such thing as too many books, right?

I tend to fill my books with stuff I pick up while I read them, too. Things like receipts, tickets, scraps of paper, notes and much more quite often end up in whichever book I am reading at that particular moment. They end up as little reminders of where I was or what I did when I read the books, like little surprises or treasures for the books to keep. 

Anyone else doing the same?
