The garden

Of all the many joyful obligations of our existence, the garden here has been the most sustaining just in part because it is the most rhythmic, through winter, spring, summer, and fall. It actually has taught us to love every day of our life. One cannot ask more of love for a garden than that.

Physical activity

I know I am a girl of the time. I wish to practice Pilates, yoga, Belly dance, African dacne and Krav Maga, to mention but a few. By now I do practice Qi Gong, and I know that the list of what I want to practice is way too long. But you are allowed to dream and hope. According to Abraham Marlow's theory about hierarchy of needs, you need dreams to motivate you in life. You always need something to reach after in life. But watching this clip I really want to practice the Norwegian Lausdans as well. Oh, the list of the physical related activities I want to exercise is way to long and there is way to little time to reach over them all. But you can always do some of the, for some time and at the end decide which you want to practice,

Filmpolitiets Kortfilmpris/Filmpolice Short film-price

Ingenting skal være lett, og hos brukerstøtte får du hjelpen inn med teskje.

I disse dager, hvor teknisk innsikt og logisk sans er erstattet med en mobil og kundeservice, er det raskt å rope etter hjelp for den minste ting. En kvinne får problemer med ytterdøra sin, og hun slår på tråden til kundeservice. Regissør André Øvredal er utdannet i USA og har laget reklamefilmer i 10 år i in

n- og utland. Kortfilmen er basert på en spalte av Hallgeir Opedal, publisert i Dagbladet 14. mai 2006.

Regissør: André Øvredal
Produsenter: André Øvredal, Petter V. Kjær, Simen Bang-Hansen
Redigering: Perry Eriksen
Lyd: Bent Holm
Scenografi: Håvard Schei

(Filmen er satt som link, i mangel på mulighet til å legge den til som film. Jeg synes at filmen og det faktum at den havner i bloggen min taler for seg selv. En god latter for lenger livet.)


User support

Nothing is easy, and user support will spoon-feed you to understand how to do it.

These days, where technical insight and a sense of logic has been replaced by cellphones and user support, it's easy to cry for help for even the smallest challenge. A woman faces problems with her front door, and gives user support a ring. Film director André Øvredal was educated in the USA and has produced commercial flims during a decade in both at home and abroad. The short movie is based on a coloum written by Hallgeir Opedal, publicated in Dagbladet 14.06.2006.

Film director: André Øvredal
Producers: André Øvredal, Petter V. Kjær, Simen Bang-Hansen
Editour: Perry Eriksen
sound: Bent Holm
Scenography: Håvard Schei

(You find the movie as a linke, cause of lacing the posibility to put the link in the blog. I also think that the film and the fact that the film ends up in my blogg speaks for itself. Laughter is good for the soul.)

To be or just to exist?

How could there be any question of acquiring or possessing, when the one thing needful for a man is to become -- to be at last, and to die in the fullness of his being.
