Back to business

So I was doing some reading online today and came across two different blogs (ref below) that explore the advantages and disadvantages of dating people who travel. Strangely enough, one of them was called "Don't date a girl who travels" and the other "Date a man who travels". That got me wondering, what is the difference? In one, the vision of an independent but wild woman is described as someone who can never be tied up. The male side, on the other hand, was quite sweet and explored the simplicity of the values of traveling people and how that can fit (or how you can fit) into this guy's lifestyle.

Are we that different?

Is it true that women who dare to explore the unexplored, who push the limits and who go on adventures, are destined to be alone?

What about men?
Do women adapt to a traveling man but not the other way around?

As a traveling person myself, I have seen my share fare of crazy traveling people. Some people just live for adventure, some people like it but at a more moderate level. So far, the people I know have managed to find someone special that marks them forever. The usual problem is that if both are traveling and meet at one point of their adventure and then continue, how will they meet again? As every relationship, this requires time and dedication. If there is someone special where the chemistry is just driving you nuts but chances are you won't see him/her again anytime soon, why not invest some time on facebook/email/phone and whatnot to keep that flame alive? Why not invest in that and pick up again where you left of?

What does it mean when you are surrounded by beautiful things, when the world is full of opportunities and you just can't move? In a time where Earth-like planets are being discovered (, where we push ourselves in understanding what is around us, but still we cannot understand ourselves. We hide our insecurities in work and late nights out, but how good is your poker face? The truth is, everyone is entitled to have insecurities and for some, even though they are arrogant and confident people on the outside, one day someone will come along that will take all that down. Why is that we are always subject to an outside object that can easily takes us down? Aren't we good enough?

If we can put a man on the moon, if we can cross oceans and discover continents, then we should be confident and very little should throw us down. It seems human beings like being appreciated so much that it becomes a weakness that eventually catches up. We let this transpire through our pets and our affection with animals. Often, people with socializing limitations quickly get attached to animals...Is it because they like us more than we like them? Is it because they are dependent on us for food and care? If so, why are there so many studies with animal testing? Where is the edge of caring and emotion? Perhaps we are too arrogant to think that caring for something is too different from being emotionally attached...

A sunny day in tromsø

The mørketid is gone and Tromsø begins to be full of light. The snow that is still around makes everything even brighter, including people! So I went out the other day for some photography practice, following the advice of my Master Yoda. It's amazing how the Sun affects us all. The energy is all around us and it's so much easier to get up in the morning! Give it a try, go outside and take photos, enjoy your day like nothing else matters. Alone or with a group of friends, being out makes you feel good, especially when you have clear skies and a warm light!
I did it and here is what I recorded from that wonderful day.
Can't wait for the Spring and Summer!!! Camping, trips to the mountains, will be great!!!!

"Man skal nevne alle ting med sitt rette navn, og tørr man ikke det i virkeligheten, skal man kunne gjøre det i eventyret." Sitat fra H. C. Andersen.
Eventyr har alltid betydd mye for oss. I eventyret kan vi søke inn i en annen verden, samtidig som vi internaliserer den gode moralen som ligger i eventyrene. Et viktig virkemiddel i sosialisering og undervisning

Folding the earth in its mantle
Pure and undefiled,
Soft in its own clear whiteness
As the cheek of an innocent child,
The snow o'er the world is falling,
It floats upon the air,
Silent, yet ever restless,
As a child's hands crossed in prayer.

This world is a myst'ry of sorrow,
And dark with sin and woe;
Over its toil and sadness
Thy mantle of mercy throw.
Fold us about, protect us
In Thy garment, spotless white,
As the snow in its silent falling
Is shrouding the earth tonight.
