Thinking of you. Sending love. Take good care. Loved seeing the northern lights today.

Have you seen this?


In April, the sun goes down at the South Pole until next fall and is rising at the North Pole.

Something Beautiful does make a difference. Darkness and Light.

4 years ago, I went on a trip up and down the Norwegian coast with Hurtigruten. This was in the fall, and in the evening after the sun had gone down, I used to sit in the dark, looking up into the enormous starry sky and wait for the northern light. And every night we saw it, and it was beautiful. Much more magical than you can possibly imagine from the photos and the movies. A gift from nature to soothe our minds...that's what I like to think. :-)

Thank you for reminding me!


AM, I truly appreciate you and all your kind words. Sometimes darkness does indeed fall for a while. One of my favorite quotes from the Bible (probably quoted here at StB somewhere): "Weeping endures for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." I hope that joy will come for both of us.


Bente, it's so great to have your eyewitness confirmation of the beauty that the Northern lights offer. For me, for so many of us, we take it largely on faith. You, however, have been there!
