On Friday a parcel from a dear friend wrapped me in love and lightness. She seems to always know how to fill me with sparkling joy and gratitude!
On Saturday a little boy laughed so laud and watched my paintings so focused next to me that I could feel my soul dancing. I got to tell about my dream to a beautiful friend and she dreamed along me.
I spent the weekend hiking in the countryside with two of my favourite girls. When we walked on duckboards and followed the tracks of a fox or a rabbit in the snow it was so quiet. Only snow was scrunching under our feet. I felt blessed to sit by the fire with them the cold forest around us. Now that I’ve returned home I still feel fortunate.
During past year I have seen and experienced my frailty probably clearer than ever before. But in the midst of all the pain I have also felt love and hope more greater than during the years before. It is strange how total opposites, anxiety and faith, can exist together. Somehow at the same time it makes sense too. This January I won’t be making new year resolutions. Even if hardships won’t instantly disappear when I plan or wish to, I know that I can trustfully think about the future what ever it holds for me. And on moments when I’m not able to have that confidence, I know it’s allright. There’s a great plan made for my life, better than my eyes can see at the moment. There is harmony to be found in confusion.
I have found it important to know and I hope You know it too as we head to the New Year 2012.
Whoa, there’s a choir upon the wind
Singing old familiar hymns
And my ears they’re playing tricks on me
I can almost hear harmony

It’s been a baking weekend here, I hope yours has been a good one too…
My words for the previous month would probably be change, wistful and joy.
One Wednesday I was looking through rental appartments when my eyes stumbled upon a small attic appartment. On next Friday I got a phonecall and heard it was going to be my new home from the 1st of November.
Everything happened so fast that I haven’t yet realized that when glancing out of the window the view is new. But what I have noticed are the river that floats nearby, a flowershop and a decoration boutique on the same street… And that the house is wooden, yellow and cosy.
My room here in the world of blogging has been very quiet for some time. But I noticed that there are still You who visit. Thank you for being with me even in quiet times. I appreciate it with my whole heart.
I’ll speak to you soon,
