The locomotives are black. The coal is black. The track is black. The night is black. So what am I going to to with color?

Arild Nyquist

Jeg er jeg. 
En viktig person. 
Den viktigste i hele verden. 
Men jeg kan ikke være/kan ikke bli jeg uten andre. 
I så fall er jeg/blir jeg ingenting -usynlig- og det 
vil jeg ikke være. 
I forhold til deg -den viktigste personen i hele verden.
Kyss meg!

 ... that annoying time between naps.

torsdag 30. september 2010


It's at night, when perhaps we should be dreaming, that the mind is most clear, that we are most able to hold all our life in the palm of our skull.  I don't know if anyone has ever pointed out that great attraction of insomnia before, but it is so; the night seems to release a little more of our vast backward inheritance of instincts and feelings; as with the dawn, a little honey is allowed to ooze between the lips of the sandwich, a little of the stuff of dreams to drip into the waking mind.  I wish I believed, as J. B. Priestley did, that consciousness continues after disembodiment or death, not forever, but for a long while. Three score years and ten is such a stingy ration of time, when there is so much time around.  Perhaps that's why some of us are insomniacs; night is so precious that it would be pusillanimous to sleep all through it!  A "bad night" is not always a bad thing.

Saint Teresa

Our souls may lose their peace and even disturb other people's, if we are always criticizing trivial actions - which often are not real defects at all, but we construe them wrongly through our ignorance of their motives.

Autumn by George Eliot

Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

Die when I may, I want it said by those who knew me best that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.

A silent mind, freed from the onslaught of thoughts and thought patterns, is both a goal and an important step in spiritual development. Such "inner silence" is not about the absence of sound; instead, it is understood to bring one in contact with the divine, the ultimate reality, or one's own true self.

Botanisk hage

Regntung dag, men perfekt for en tur i Botanisk hage i Oslo.
Luktene fra spirende blomster og urter var sterke etter et kraftig regnskyll, utrolig fint å ha en slik oase midt i byen...

Be you

People are disturbed not by things but by the view they take of them.They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

Said Carl W Buechner.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Michael Wesely

He made the photo not with a fancy digital camera but with an extremely rude, homemade device — a pinhole camera made from an empty soda can with a .25mm hole punched in it and one sheet of photo paper inside. He strapped it to a telephone pole and left it there for six months, from December 19, 2007 to June 21, 2008.

The Content of a dream & metaphors

The symbolic meaning of a dream can often be found by looking for the metaphoric meaning of a dream image or action. A metaphor is defined as a figure of speech in which a term is transferred to something which it does not literally apply. Dream images often give literal meaning to a thought or action, which once translated back into colloquial speech, can give us an understanding of what the dream is about.'

Consider all of the different elements & objects dominant colours, numbers, emotions,etc. A reocurring dream can indicate that there is something in your life that you are not dealing with or something unresolved. Once you have worked out and identified what the issue is, you may be in a better position to resolve it. For example, if you repeatedly dream of running away, consider exactly what it is you are trying to escape from.

You're more likely to act yourself into feeling than feel yourself into action. So act! Whatever it is you know you should do, do it!

Not just how
it hung so still
in the quick of its wings,
all gem and temper
anchored in air;
not just the way
it moved from shelf
to shelf of air,
up down, here there,
without moving;
not just how it flicked
its tongue's thread
through each butter-yellow
foxglove flower
for its fix of sugar;
not just the vest's
electric emerald,
the scarf's scarlet,
not just the fury
of its berry-sized heart,
but also how the bird
would soon be found
in a tree nearby,
quiet as moss at the end
of a bare branch,
wings closed around

Acid Trip

These 9 drawings were done by an artist under the influence of LSD -- part of a test conducted by the US government during it's dalliance with psychotomimetic drugs in the late 1950's. The artist was given a dose of LSD 25 and free access to an activity box full of crayons and pencils. His subject is the medico that jabbed him.

Pablo Picasso


What is a face, really? Its own photo? Its make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? Inside? Behind? And the rest? Doesn't everyone look at himself in his own particular way? Deformations simply do not exist.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn said:

It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes... we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions - especially selfish ones.
