island jumping in Troms

Last wednsday , Gerd, Ragnvald and me had a nice roadtrip around some of the islands of Troms. Gerd have been teaching me some basic techniques of woodcarving in his workshop the last week, and Ragnvald has been so sweet to supply me with some of his nice sibirian driftwood that he collect. So now its all set for the totempole I'm going to start carving.
woodcarving is hard work.. guess I'll be pretty buff soon!

And yeah, here is some pixx from the trip me and the guys had,
- I love the snowy beaches!

When I grow up, I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
That’s what I’ll do, throwing out boomerang
Waiting for it to come back to me

When I grow up, I want to live near the sea
Crab claws and bottles of rum
That’s what i’ll have staring at the seashell
Waiting for it to embrace me

"(...) some Native Americans have come to see them as "tacky" and over-commercialized due to their acceptance in popular culture."


Traditionally, the Ojibwa construct dreamcatchers by tying sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame of willow (in a way roughly similar to their method for making snowshoe webbing). The resulting "dream-catcher", hung above the bed, is then used as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. Dreamcatchers made of willow and sinew are not meant to last forever but instead are intended to dry out and collapse over time as the child enters the age of adulthood.

Ei erotisk oppleving utanom det vanlege....

Menneskja var ikkje så ulike oss for 3500 år sidan, om me skal dømma etter inskripsjonane på bautasteinen på Norda Hidle. I temmeleg klare ordelag, skildras det korleis liv skal skapast mellom mann og kvinna.

Vil du høyra eldgammal poesi? Ta på steinen, og la kreftene strøyma....! Heilage kvite steinar har det blitt funne fleire av i området vårt, men dei fleste er på museum nå. På Norda Hidle kan du få ta på ein nær to tusen år gamal fallos. Om du ikje treng krafta, så er historia kring ulike fruktbarhetskulturar spennande og interessante.

Me avsluttar opplevinga i Eldhuset der me et erotisk mat: til gleda for alle sansar.






The Seagull is a totem of Emotional Healing. Seagulls are mostly witnessed either diving into the water or surfacing to float. It is considered that the seagulls connection to water is symbolic for those whom share this totem. Water represents our emotional state, and because the Seagull's behavior adds to the message, then its actions upon appearance should be noted. If a Seagull dives in front of you, then this can signify deep emotional issues that require healing. If the Seagull bobs upon the waters surface, it is considered a message of peace and the "letting go to let God". Go more with the flow and trust that you are safe. Seagulls also represent the teachings of fairness and respect and how to create relationships based upon these two important principals.

It is a complex system, writing figurative, symbolic, and phonetic all at once, in the same text, the same phrase, I would almost say in the same word.
