Storm brings destruction
It’s preceded by silence
A force of nature



Germany can very well lead its economy
Germany & France fail to lead Europe’s economy
Again, The US may have to lead Europe’s economy
All should learn from Islamic economy


Ready or not, here it comes! Winter in the North Cape

Nature is moving on, of course…

Everyday life in the North Cape & North of Norway

When I looked out the window this morning I have to confess that my first thoughts were NOT, “Yippee!  Snow!”

While my kids ran around the house, excitedly putting on winter parkas and  shouting, “We can make snow caves, and throw snow balls and go sledding and skiing and… and … and…” I was thinking about 7 months of winter and wondering if I’m really ready for it.  I’m not sure I am ready for it, but when I came to work today, I was reminded of how beautiful this season is…. with magical light that changes with each passing day, drawing us quickly into the polar night season.

So ready or not, here it comes  – Winter has said hello to the North Cape!

In the middle of town bustle
Yet police sirens, Turkish wedding music, cars
Can’t make a muscle
Distant remain the street’s stars



Early night, rains at the window
First Christmas articles in the shops
Enjoyable is the warmth candles bestow
Warmth is what need my chops
