happy new year

This picture is taken at the back of my house this afternoon. The colours and light today is really beautiful…..this brings me hope for the coming year.

I always like this time of year. The feeling of finishing up and starting up again with a clean slate. I take time to write and read a lot in these quite days between x-mas eve and new years. We only went to one x-mas party this year. We chose this because I really crave the peace and the stillness. I’ve gone deep into my practise this week. I love moving and just observing the knots and openings I find in my body. This is the importance of yoga for me. To listen to my body and reflect over the obstacles and triumphs I meet. I feel more in touch with my self this way, and I believe this makes me a better mother, wife and friend. My hope for 2009 is to continue on my path without to many derails……Happy new year if anybody should stumble across this humble little blog!!

stella nova

I have the day of and I am delighted. A whole day with no plans. My daughter got the flue last night. I have been up with her numerous times through the night so I'm a little short on sleep. I hope to finish " The angels game" by Carlos Ruiz Zafron, I tell you more about this wonderful book tomorrow. I understand that it is not translated into English yet. But if you loved “The shadow of the wind” you will love this one. I will also try to write down my goals for 2009 in my diary and make out a plan how to accomplish them. First and foremost I hope to be certified to teach ashtanga yoga this year. This has been my dream for more than 5 years. I'm currently in the middle of a really demanding teachers training that I will fill you in on later. Speaking of yoga I will try to do the primary series in ashtanga yoga in the middle of my living room with a blazing fire going in the fireplace this afternoon.......and maybe just maybe run by my favorite store, located just five minutes from my house, on this beautiful island that I live. They stock "Stella Nova", a Danish brand that I just love love love. I can't make the link work, but you can pay them a visit at www.stella-nova.dk.

I’m finally going to throw myself into the game again. There is really no good reason why I haven’t been blogging for more than two years (and then just for a couple of months), because I’m really a passionate blog reader. I love all your beautiful blogs and now finally I have decided I will join in. Since this is my debut blog entry I will take the time to introduce myself. I’m a 35-year-old Norwegian girl, living on the east cost of Norway with my beautiful daughter (10 years old) and my sweet husband. We’ve actually been married ten years in a couple of months. During the day I have my office job, and at night I teach ashtanga yoga, take pictures and gobble down one book after another. I’m also a passionate diary writer and I love making collages with my daughter. I will leave you with some photographs from my vacation this summer to Bali.
