A merry Christmas to everybody

lørdag 26. november 2011



The first time that you hold them,
Nestled in your arms so sweet;
They somehow steal your heart away,
And make your life complete.

As if God saved the best for last,
Then sent it from Heaven above;
This tiny babe on angel's wings,
Your first Grandchild to love.

Chestnut tree

Every chestnut tree started out as a couple of nuts who decided to stand their ground

Jeg har forresten presentert bloggen min på Bloggurat.

Lie to me darling

She wants to believe that you have come to stay
She wants to believe that you are what you pretend to be
She is listening to you, you are warm and confident
She is listening to you and wants to believe all she hears

But she believes that what has the power to bring us together
also reasonably has the power to bring us apart
She believes that everything built eventually also will be demolished
Still she holds you so gently everytime you are there

Maria Mena in consert

My favorite artist 
with the most beautiful lyrics

I am your stubborn hypocritical lover
Guarded by thorns of my past
You have been wounded, bled out
Anger gushing
And none of us thought it would last

The winds of your ego
The waves of my tears
Made the most perfect almighty storm
That we've seen this year
But experience gathered
We've learned from our past
So don't worry darling
This too shall pass

-Maria Mena-

Waiting for the miracle...

Baby, I've been waiting,
I've been waiting night and day.
I didn't see the time,
I waited half my life away.
There were lots of invitations 
but I was waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come

I dreamed about you, baby.
It was just the other night.
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light.
The sands of time were falling
from your fingers and your thumb,
and you were waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come 

Ah baby, let's get married,
we've been alone too long.
Let's be alone together.
Let's see if we're that strong.

Autumn in Bergen

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

The ocean and me

It’s the ocean and me
We’re the ones to be
I always fall asleep
Beside the sea

And we’ve got a certain way
How it wakes me every day
I never know though
With what kind of wave

And you know about oceans
How brutally it can rush
Drown you, or calmly caress you
With a gentle touch

torsdag 6. oktober 2011


One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; 
and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
 Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering

I would feel the sunlight
But I could burn from everywhere
Now you must make me a shadow
I will shine for you in there

Painted by the sun

A photograph is a portrait painted by the sun

Any regrets?

Now that you see who I am,
are you pleased with your catch?
Is there any regret?
Or is life just perfect?

And now that you found out my weakspot
Has it made you sure?
Or do you want more?
Of lifes expectation

Footsteps walking with me
Footsteps I cannot see
But every move I make
And every step I take
I know they're there with me
They walk with me all the way
Beside me day by day
Through good and bad
Through happy and sad
Those footsteps won't go away

A photographer is like a fish, he lays thousands of eggs
 hoping that one will grow to maturity.

I wanna trust you...

I wanna trust you but I don't know if I do, 
so I'm just gonna try.
 I'm gonna try and trust you because I believe
 that we can be extraordinary together
 rather than ordinary apart.

You know what a camera is? A mirror with memory.

Good nature will always supply the absence of beauty;
 but beauty cannot supply the absence of good nature.

White Castle

One and a half years ago I was at Lysøen.
 I photographed the beautiful castle of Ole Bull. 
This picture has always meant a lot to me without knowing why.
 Is it fate? 
Because by beautiful Lysøen lives a beautiful person
 who suddenly came into my life 
and turned it around

Red Sunset

The color of love is red

                          Life is like a rainbow.
                           You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear

I Love...

I love everything about lighthouses 
their daymark, their coastal locations 
the style of tower, the keepers  dwelling 
the way they endure the powers of nature. 

Most of all, I love their light, bright, 
seen from far sight
a sense of “safety” no matter how dark the night.

I've learned that good-byes will always hurt, pictures will never replace having been there, 
memories good and bad will bring tears,
 and words can never replace feelings.

My cloud

Out here on the ledge
I finally picked out my cloud
It's the one over there surrounded by all that air

I'm so glad we had this moment here alone

My camera

The camera is an excuse to be someplace you otherwise don't belong.
 It gives me both a point of connection and a point of separation.

Lunar Eclipse

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

fredag 10. juni 2011

Talking to the moon

I am
Talking to the Moon

Trying to get to You
In hopes you're on
the other side
Talking to me too

Or am I a fool
who sits alone
Talking to the moon

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away

Clouds come floating into my life,
 no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
 but to add color to my sunset sky

Norway in a Nutshell

onsdag 25. mai 2011

You're my hero

Hope is always on your side
There''ll be days when it is harder to find,
You'll reach that mountain top some how
You may have to walk for miles
Cross the desert
Swim rivers wide
No matter who you are
You're my hero

When you feel like giving up
Just look how far you've come
'Cause when you take that first step
You know you've already won
You are so close you can almost
Hold it in your hands

tirsdag 24. mai 2011

Still waiting...

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I'm not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I'm still waiting

I'm through with doubt
There's nothing left for me to figure out
I've paid a price
And I'll keep paying

Spring fever

“It's spring fever....
You don't quite know what it is you DO want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

-Mark Twain-

This prayer

The night we met blended in with the bustle of the city
Passed between dreams and reality and disappeared like an illusion
Because the moon that day was too far and my memory was vague with your blurred figure

We looked up together at the moon
 that looked close enough to touch, didn't we?
It was so beautiful that I felt pain in my chest and was about to cry

I closed my eyes and sweared
"If this prayer come true, I need nothing, nothing else"

Everybody's changing

You say you wander your own land
But when I think about it
I don't see how you can

You're aching, you're breaking
And I can see the pain in your eyes
Says everybody's changing
And I don't know why

So little time
Try to understand that I'm
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
But everybody's changing
And I don't feel the same

My soul

 Some days, feels my soul has left my body

Feel I’m floating high above me
Like I’m looking down upon me
Start sinking, everytime I get to thinking

It’s easier to keep on moving
Never stop to let the truth in

Sometimes I feel like it’s all been done
Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one
Sometimes I wanna change everything I’ve ever done
Too tired to fight and yet too scared to run

Some words are better left unspoken

My shadow

Following my footsteps home
This time I'm walking alone
Trying hard to be someone
I don't even know

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again

The Water is Wide

The water is wide I can not get over
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that will carry two
And both shall row my love and I

Content with silence

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.
 When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

Don't believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation.
 Look with your understanding,
 find out what you already know,
 and you'll see the way to fly.
