iN THE MIST THERE WAS LIGHT

"The maker of a sentence launches into the infinite and builds a road into chaos and old night, and is followed by those who hear him with something of wild, creative delight." - Ralph Waldo Emerson Words flow somewherelse unread and free...30, number that make me feel grown and changed. The waterbaby shell has opened.

"Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get" Mark Twain

I have always had a biased view on global warming and all the mumbo jumbo brought up by politicians and economists alike in the past few years. Statistics at best is unreliable unless the right equipment and stations are used and if you are the most unbiased being on the planet. So Global warming, as one of my favorite oceanography lecturer at Uni used to say ,"... is just a phase that will turn into another ice age". Maybe extreme this statement has always been in the back of my mind over the past few years. So did the... [Lire la suite]

Exams or the eternal fear

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." --- Frank Herbert, Dune - Bene Gesserit Litany Against FearFear...I have had  a very comfortable screw with fear over the past years, one that has lead me to be utterly jittery and out of control in testing...

.....on the wave of summer...

Days linger into a go to work, get home, try to find something insightful to do on the boat, get home, cook, watch something on TV or read and go to bed. A gentle routine that will most likely take over our lives for the next 3 months. I desperately try in the occasional trip down to my gym and a rollerblade ride by the riverside.Unbeleivable how simple actions can fill the day so fast. Had also a laugh today with this

Time & Friendship

“If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet smelling herbs – that is your success. All nature is your congratulations” – Henry David Thoreau - Danemark in the spring 2008 I have been trying to define the term friendship and it became more complicated then expected.  Espen came up with someone you enjoy spending time with, I find it a little restrictive and according to Aristotle and myself it is impossible to apply one definition. Complexity is the... [Lire la suite]

Specialisation is for insects.

‘A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.’ Robert A. Heinlein Tornadoes, tsunamis of goals are spreading in my office, looking me in the face everyday. Staring with their... [Lire la suite]

“Imagination is the beginning of creation" George bernard Shaw

Life has treated me fairly in the past few months and I surprisingly see a pattern in  two opposite shifts. The first is linked to sickness and death and has spread a dark web among my family, it leads me to remembering that time is precious and to visit those loved ones instead of waiting for an easier time, a better time. The second, is a cloud of success which seems to touch, again, closed ones. Is it  global awareness? So yes I am happy, I value the people in my life, the new ones and I try to let the old ones...

Happy New Year

Down in Germany again after x-mas in France, hoping round visiting family and lost friends in the south and the Alps, Re-connecting.

Picture, high pointy snowtops and wooden chalets, sun reflecting on the white snow , the air crisp and fresh and the company of 3 beautiful mountain soul, my cousins. Nature, wild nature brought back to my mind How we have made ourselves into abstraction. Having what is considered a normal life, urban lifestyle, makes me... [Lire la suite]

"When someone gets a job, it better be clear what they did to get it." Mark V. Hurd

Unsettled times, changed plans, the equation of my  life, the new me is proud to announce a radical change to the mathematical formula...add velocity, multiply by a limitless tangent X and it equals... a new job, training, potential offshore duties, dutch language, a humane small sized company of 17 employees who told me that being a woman was a bonus.Now only terms of contract and work conditions have to be settled...tomorrow...and I boosted my self-esteem today by dimantling, cleaning, oiling and putting back together a winch,...
