Our days are getting longer, lighter.
Slowly, slowly still, yet, I can feel the difference from day to day.
I am back to work, with the last rest of my cold as a daily companion,
and the few light hours of the day are mostly spent indoor.
Yesterday we had an all day meeting with the deans in our diocese. Lunch was at a restaurant not for from the Archbishop´s Palace, and while walking back there after the lunch, I decided it was time to take a few minutes in the cold, sunny January day, walking a detour through the cathedral park.
My only camera was my HTC Desire cell phone,
luckily today´s cellphone, even this "old" one from 2010, has
quite good cameras.
Both our bodies and our minds need light.
I am looking forward to longer, warmer days,
but even a few minutes in the bleak, cold winter sun,
makes a huge difference.
Thanks a lot for your comments yesterday.
And thanks for your nice words about my English -
I am beaming :-)
The swans live in.............
Sorry Lorrie, they are not in Oslo,
nor are they in Denmark Susan, though I would love to be there at one of my brother´s concerts.
Wendy, no, they are not in Sweden,
Joan and Dagmar.....YES, they are from Iceland, from the small pond in the middle of downtown Reykjavik.
I am goind there next weekend, to celebrate my brother´s 50th birthday, and to see my nephew acting in Macbeth at the National Theatre.
Lucky me :-)
Do you remember Àgùst taking part in Oliver Twist two years ago?
I promised Àgùst then that I would come over ever time he got a big role to act, and an aunt can´t break a promise, can she?
Yes, Dagmar, please tell me why you knew?
You got a postcard from me two years ago, didn´t you?
And you will get another one now. I already have your address :-)
Joan, will you please email me your address.
What about the rest of you?
Who else want a postcard from Iceland?
Please leave a comment, and then email me your address.
My lunch break walk in the sun is over,
yesterday is over.
Today is Saturday, and it is time to pack away Christmas.
