Merry Christmas

Christmas is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

Slowly fade away

And I watch with a breaking heart as you slowly fade away.
 I find myself straining to remember everything about those moments,
 everything about you.
 But soon, always too soon,
 your image vanishes and the fog rolls back to its far away place
 and I am alone again
 and I do not care what others think
 as I bow my head and cry

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
 What you have caught on film is captured forever...
 it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

Notice me...

Notice me, take my hand
Why are we strangers..

Everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you

And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, it's haunting me
I guess I need you

At night I pray
That soon your face will fade away

All I want...

for Christmas is

peace of mind
 peace of heart
 and peace of soul

 if Christmas isn't found in your heart,
 you won't find it under a tree...

 I don't hear a sound
But my own voice

A Shattered Dream

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed...
It feels an impulsion...this is the place to go now.
 But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds,
 and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons

-Richard Bach-

The true dream

Maybe we accept the dream has become a nightmare.
 We tell ourselves that reality is better.
 We convince ourselves it's better that we never dream at all.
But, the strongest of us, the most determined of us, holds on to the dream or we find ourselves faced
with a fresh dream we never considered.
 We wake to find ourselves, against all odds, feeling hopeful.
And, if we're lucky, we realize in the face of everything, in the face of life
 the true dream is being able to dream at all

Just words

He had a word, too. Love, he called it.
 But I had been used to words for a long time.
 I knew that that word was like the others: just a shape to fill a lack; that when the right time came, you wouldn't need a word for that anymore than for pride or fear.
It was just a word

Magical winter wonderland

 when I lug around a camera
I can be lucky to be in the right place at the right time

Heading for the light

I've wandered around with nothing more than time on my hands
I was lost in the night

And at times it was so blue and lonely
Been close to the edge, hanging by my fingernails
And I couldn't see the sign that warned me, I'm
Heading for the light
I didn't see that big black cloud hanging over me

And when the rain came down I was nearly drowned
My shoes are wearing out from walking down this same highway
Heading for the light

I can't feel my senses
I just feel the cold
All colours seem to fade away
The river's frozen once again

The cold shine behind
The frozen stream
Reminds me of your eyes

Ta aldri noen for gitt

Ta aldri noen for gitt 
 Hold hvert menneske du er glad i nær hjertet ditt
 For en dag våkner du kanskje opp og innser,
 at du har mistet en Diamant
 mens du var opptatt med å samle gråstein

If I could bring down the moon to you
I would
but even that
would ever be enough

Farewell you

I`ve been wandering around for so long
Waiting and thinking is all I seem to do

Safe inside myself are all my thoughts of you
But it ends here today

I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side.
All the little pieces falling
Shards of me,
too sharp to put back together

Today is the beginning of my new life
I am starting over today
And I will focus on all good things in life
because life is too short

But you'll stay in my past

Farewell you

As I look into your eyes
I see all the reasons why
My life’s worth a thousand skies
You’re the simplest love I’ve known
And the purest one I’ll own

How do I explain that smile?
And how it turns my world around
Keeping my feet on the ground

I will soothe you if you fall
I’l be right there if you call
You’re my greatest love of all

-Marc Anthony-

Why ?


why do we love again
when love has broken the heart

why does the sun shine
when the rain still falls

why does the bird sing
when the tree has no leaves

why does a floor always creak
when need is to be silent

why do so many listen
when promises are so often broken

why do we have the choice
when so often the choice is wrong

why do we care so much
when so many do not

why is the love often frowned
when the loved is to be different

-Gary M. Dean-

I carry your heart

I carry your heart with me
(I carry it in my heart)

I am never without it.
I go you go, my dear
 and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling

i carry your heart
(i carry it in my heart)

"Fortalte jeg noen gang at jeg elsket deg...?."

 " For jeg gjør det... elsker deg..."
visket hun ut i natten
 mens hun smilte.

Så våknet hun alene
 av dagslyset som skinte inn vinduet

Missing someone isn't about how long it's been since you've seen them last
or the amount of time since you've talked.
it's about that very moment when you're doing something,
and you wish that they were right there with you

I can fly higher than an eagle,
'cause you are the wind beneath my wings.

Meaning of life

So I found a reason to stay alive,
try a little harder, see the other side.
Talking to myself -
Too many sleepless nights,
trying to find a meaning to this stupid life.
I don't want your sympathy,
sometimes I don't know who to be

This could be the first
day of my life
So I found a reason
to let it go

But it doesn`t

I want to say it gets easier,
 but sometimes it doesn’t get all that much easier.

 if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge
 and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you,
 you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.

Vil du vita kva ljoset er,

Eg skal sjå deg, og seia deg

Message for you

I am convinced

Yes...let`s just
leave everything and everyone behind
and live for the moment

The very same moon

Night after night, I look to the stars
Wondering where you might be
And I've thought to myself, is that very same moon
Shining on you, like it's shining on me

Keep on walking

I have a long road ahead of me
It's cloudy and dark it's hard to see
Will I ever get through to the end?
Been down this sling so many times before
And I told myself I would do it no more
Now I'm back on the same road again

I was aiming for the sky,
ended up flat on the ground
But once again the sun is rising,
I better keep on walking

Do you know?

Another autumn day
has come and gone
I walk alone through the park
I walk along so I can feel my breath
Without distraction, without no relief

You are always om my mind
and I miss you so much...

Do you know?

Mot ukjente landskap

Denne uro e ein vind
som rive i seilet,
- et sting i søvnig sinn,
Denne uro e ein sti
Mot ukjente landskap,
mot alt som kan gå meg forbi.
Så min uro må bli.

Denne uro e ein gnist
som tenne opp bålet
og blir ein brann te sist.
Denne uro e ein del
av liv eg har levd i.
For den som sette alt på spel,
har ein uro i sjel.

Må min uro holda stand
som vind, som bål og brann.
I alt eg har av tilmålt tid:
La min uro forbli.

A wise man once said you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.
 What he meant is nothing comes without a price.
 So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you're willing to lose.
 Too often, going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right,
 and letting someone in means abandoning the walls you've spent a lifetime building.
 Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don't see coming,
 when we don't have time to come up with a strategy to pick a side or to measure the potential loss.
 When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around,
 that's when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear.

You can bet your life

      Yes, all that you’ve give me, I know
      But all you’ve cost me, you know
      Sums up to nothing much you know,
      nothing much at all
Sorry for not being what you needed
For not possessing what you
Think you want
Don’t know about anyone who does
By the way, is that why
you’re still you?
Still within yourself

Tell me which part I loved
And which one I hate the most?
Did it get you ready for later
Did the others fade out, like me?

I won’t come near you again
You can bet your life
I don’t think I
Even want to see you

Ever again

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

-Albert Camus-

lørdag 16. oktober 2010


I love the time and in between
the calm inside me
in the space where I can breathe
I believe there is a
distance I have wandered
to touch upon the years of
reaching out and reaching in
holding out holding in

I believe
this is heaven to no one else but me
and I'll defend it as long as I can be
left here to linger in silence

Have patience

Please don't push me,

I need to walk these stairs on my own
If you want to go faster, that`s alright.
I can`t go faster than I am able to.

Please don't push me!
I need to stay here for a while
Rest a little, reflect a little, weep a little...
go back one step, feel if I`m ready to move on

Please don't push me!
It hurts to trip over...
Maybe I`ll trip over anyway,
but at least I`ll do it my way
It`s safer that way.

Don`t try to convince me
the next step is easier
just because you`ve walked these roads before
I feel safe when you`re waiting here with me.
It is safe with you around,
I need someone to hold on to,
someone who knows the next step.
It's hard to take all these steps alone...

I'm heading on...have patience

Please don`t push me!

Autumn leaves

The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Dagene som kom og gikk

Det kan være man oppsøker "gamle stier"
 når man føler seg ensom og alene
Man gjør det fordi det er godt å være der
la tankene vandre der...
 la tårene komme
slippe ut vonde følelser..

Sette seg ned...
 la minnene strømme på
de gode minnene
de gode minnene man ikke trodde fantes
minnene om en tid som er forbi

Det var en av de dagen som kom og gikk...

The last humiliation
