March moments.....

The transition has started..
Not only in nature..
That is all...


I longed for spring in early March, but nature said: . be patient, girl, so I kept burning candles in the evenings and even took out the "happy" candles.



 
It was carnival time at school. First time for some.
 I think they enjoyed it. Sometimes it is so hard to tell.
 
 

Easter holiday and I could "move" to the country and spend my "medtitationtime" by the North sea.




Sunshine on my mothers orchids.


I visited an old grave. I don't go very often because I don't really feel that it gives me much for some reason. This time it felt good to be here.



They came back from easter holiday and the first thing they asked where. - The big easter egg - where is it? Of course, it was there somewhere.

 
 
I love it when things start to grow..
 
Welcome spring!

Koosi.....


Koosi, apparantley means "peace" in the language called masaba, a language spoken by around two million people in east Africa. It lead me to think of the English word "cozy" or the Norwegian word "koselig", positive words, good words leading me to think of good things.

I took the photo above on the morning of March 23rd, and peace was the first thing that struck me. The sun reflecting in the quiet fjord. A boat out fishing, a quiet village, easter holiday. Peace all around. A beautiful moment that this photo doesn't do justice at all.

I am alone at home. I know that those I care most about are either travelling in Europe (safe places, hopefully), they are skiing in the mountains or visiting granny in a different part of the country. They are safe and sound on this particular day. Not all of us are, and we don't know where terror will stikre next.  I just came to think about this as the images from the world came in where my image is this.


I don't have any other Words than this.

Silent Sunday...

The easter holiday has started. Countrylife has started. I went out for some exercise before dark on what I thought was quite a grey night. It turned out to be not so grey.

Jogging....

I have always loved walking. Ever since I was a child I have had this need to go out and exercise. About four years ago I started to run now and again. Not fast, not far, but slowly getting the pace up.

I started to run at a point in my life when I had a lot of things going on. It was liberating  to just go out and run the streets, take everything out and come home exhausted. I have not downloaded any apps that can show how far or fast I run or anything like that. I don't have any plans to enter competitions. I don't talk much about it to other people. It is not the point. And I love doing it alone. I just have this need to do it alone. This part has puzzled me a bit.



I alway feel I need a photo in my posts and here I am ready for a run. Still mitten- and winter footwear weather around here,
 
 
This winter I have been feeling a bit under the weather for large parts of the season. I have kept on walking, but not fast walking and no running. Gradually, as my body is able to cope with the increased movement of it and with something resembling spring in the air, I have taken up running again. It is really good to feel that, even with little training over the past three months my body responds to the running really well. So maybe it was not such a bad thing to stop for a while? I have also given a lot of thought to why I run. It is the national health advice that exercise is good for you, yes. But for me I think the main thing is that it empties my head. It is a kind of meditation and I think that is why I need to do it alone.

Silent Sunday...

South westerly gales, rain AND a body who, after months of feeling shabby, now is able to run/powerwalk around the lake again.

Happy sunday!

In the classroom...

The other day we talked about taking photos and using filters during the lunchbreak at work. This is something I am not very good at so I got a bit inspired, got my phone out and started to play around.  I took a lot of photographs around the classroom, but I don't think the results where that great. Over the weekend I've been wondering what to do with them; delete them or what? I decided to keep them. Even if they are not very interesting, they give a picture of my everyday here and now. Come  autumn this may change.

Here they are. I made a collage:
