I´ll show you the advantages of having a blog
That´s my neighbour X stopping by for a cup of coffee.
See, I would never ask him to help us unless we had an emergency on our hands but he read on the blog that Sigurd and me were snowed in and “he was just in the neighbourhood” working in the forest, which he owns, and besides there´s a cabin warmer in the tractor too, so.
I like X. I like it when he says stuff like “the forest is alive and it thrives better if people live here, it´s not supposed to be so deserted out here”
I guess that´s why he lets people live here. I guess that´s why he helps us.
X thinks my blog is a drama documentary.
This blog being a drama documentary and all I´d like to tell you that we got cabin fever today so we went on a little expedition. Prepare the gear. Sadle up. Go.
This was where we were going
It´s a small river connecting two lakes. It was minus 25 yesterday but the water always flows. There.
We drink the water… and this is why I care about pollution, you shouldn´t do it, we also eat the snow and lick on the icicles.
Snowstorm. Hurry home. (this is drama). Finger paint.
His grandfather (my father in law) is a recognized landscape painter artist but Sigurd chose to paint the ocean.
Today Jeppe is on the ocean together with Silas who turned 15 yesterday and I´m not there. They´re fishing for cod. Back in the motherland, the motherland, the motherland
This is my mother
She made me this vest to wear when I do the speeches. This vest plays a part in my coming book, my coming book is about shamanism and thread work, norse mythology and so on (voluspá, voluspá… come to me) but it´s not going to well with the book which is why I even made this blog entry to begin with, to calm myself, I wanted to write but my basket looks like this
So I´m thinking that maybe I could just be a drama documentarian instead, wouldn´t that be enough, really?
… these are questions I ask myself while the fire slowly burns and the snow quietly falls…
It´s all very simple. “Simplify, simplify!” said Thoreau but this is not my core competence.
