Energy booster

I'm back home after a wonderful weekend in Trondheim with a really good friend of mine. There were great conversations - this girl is my absolute favorite discussion partner! And we read a wonderful little book, After the Quake by Murakami. Only six little stories, and I finished it on the flight back to Oslo. I usually find it hard to get to know the characters when reading short stories. Not so with this one. I think I even got to know them a little better than I usually do with Murakami's characters. I think I'll re-read it in a while, there is more to these stories than revealed at first reading. Besides talking and reading, we ate great sushi (what would life be without good food?), enjoyed a lovely opera at Olavshallen, and went for a walk in this year's first snow! And even though I'm now happy to be with my family again, I long for that lovely white carpet covering everything and making the world clean and quiet. I hope we won't have to wait too long.

En venn er så å si et annet jeg ( sitat M. T. Cicero ).

Det er alltid kjekt med slike "vene-besøk" der ein føler slik glede. Det kan ein leve lenge på :)

Takk! Gode venner er herlig! Og det er Murakamis bøker og. Bare synd vi må vente så lenge på 1Q84..

Høres ut som du hadde en herlig venninnehelg! Det er som vitaminer, spesielt nå på høsten.
