We made it. To London, to our hotel, to dinner with our sister in law and to the theatre! Oscar Wilde´s The Importance of Being Earnest.
A Trivial Comedy for Serious People
The photos is just for fun of course, I can tell you we had a terrible hard time trying to look serious long enough for my sister in law to take it.
The days serendipity: We had agreed to meet Stina, my brother Børge´s wife, somewhere near Picadilly Circus around six o´clock. As our travel had gone so smoothly we were there already one hour early and had planned to sit down for a coffee. Coming up from the tube station we found ourselves in a crowd with a million other people. You know, right in the heart of London on a Saturday afternoon. We walked may be a hundred years, threading our way in and out between people. Then Terje bumped into a woman and they both stopped dead!
Day#1 Came out to the airport only to learn that our flight had been cancelled. Many hours and a lot of stress later, we are back home in the House in the Woods, crossing our fingers that tomorrow will be a better day.
It is hard to maintain several blogs. I have kind of reopened my Norwegian blog Blåklokkeveien, and try to blog there every day just now. Which unfortunately means that there is less time to be here.....
If I have time, I always visit the outdoor flower market when I am in Oslo. We used to have one in Trondheim as well, though over the years it grew smaller and smaller, until it completely disappeared a few years ago. I think this is what I miss most in Trondheim. The outdoor flower market.
Now I am in Oslo for a couple of days, and as soon as today´s meeting was finished, before tonight´s dinner with two best friends, I set out for a few of Oslo´s less known book stores, the no chain ones. But before that........
....yes, you guessed it. The flower market.
Well may be it is a good thing we don´t have one in Trondheim any more. If we had I would probably have used all my money on flowers.
The cabin rose garden performed three seasons this weekend. Spring in the bud, summer in the full bloom, autumn in the dead head.
I sat out on the terrace in the sun, reflecting on life and death. Though mostly on life. A life, when lived fully, with spring, summer and autumn present. All at the same time. That´s the blessing, the richness of being a human. Life lived fully!
