I am a 45 year old writer and poet that just published my first collection of poetry called Greylight. I live by 3 simple rules everyday, live, laugh, love. I currently live in Norway with my husband and our dog. I adore people watching and seeing how others see the city I now live in.

daily routines

It’s so nice to have my husband back after his business trip, you start to realize just how much the daily routine matters. For me it’s great to have him back because I sleep better at night. It’s comforting to have him next to me & know that he’s asleep with the dog. When it’s…

a windy day

The other day I & the dog had some time by ourselves & I decided to take him for a hike up Fløyen. Within minutes of walking off the bus I ran into a great woman who was walking aimlessly through the city with no point & asked if she’d like to go hiking with…
