The Toga Party

We went to a Toga party in Vejby close to Tisvildeleje in Northern Sealand. It had been some 30 years ago since I had been to the last Toga Party. This time it was at a 20 year birthday. A daughter of some of your good friends. They are always having good parties. Sheets and leave wreaths on and then off we went to the party with great people, food and ancient greek sport challenges. One of them was archery. Remark the one legged style. A sure winner… The toga has its roots in garments worn by the Etruscans and the Greeks. The Greeks had worn a lengthy cloak called the himation, and the Etruscans, early inhabitants of the Italian peninsula, had adapted this into...

The Gilgamesh Project

The Gilgamesh myth is about King Gilgamesh of Uruk, who could defeat anyone in battle. One day, Gilgamesh best friend, Enkidu, died. Gilgamesh sat by the body and observed it for many days, until he saw a worm dropping out of his friend´s nostril. At that moment Gilgamesh was gripped by a terrible horror, and he resolved that he himself, would never die. He would somehow find a way to defeat death. Gilgamesh then undertook a journey to the end of the universe, killing lions, battling scorpion-men and finding his way into the underworld. There he shattered the mysterious stone “things” of Urshanabi, the ferryman of the river of the dead and found Utnapishtim, the last survivor of the primordial...

Walk With Dog

When the dog looks at you, the dog is not thinking what kind of a person you are. Are the dog actually thinking are is it just learned things upon it´s basic instincs? I know that a dog can figure things out. It can certainly learn lots of things and it can learn to understand great parts of our language too. A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. A dog is always there for you and it is happy to see you when you come back. It is hard to find a greater devotion from any other creature. It is loyal, faithful and gives so much love. Yes it want´s your attention, but it also gives you...

Run Swim Run

I know I am very special about running in the heat. I love it. I love when the sweat is running from me and I can feel that my skin is doing what it can to cool me down. But before I go for a run in the heat I am very aware that I have to drink a lot before I go. If I run less than 20 km I usually don´t have water with me. If you are the type to dehydrate, feel dizzy or uncomftable in the heat, don´t do it. Run early morning or in the evening. The weather has been just great in this weak and perhaps that is why I have intensified my activity...

All You Need Is Love

A loving heart is the truest wisdom.       Charles Dickens (1812-1870) Today I will write some wise words about love. Well mostly it is other people´s wise words about love I will write to you. Why write about love? Perhaps love is the thing that most people have been writing and singing about in human history. That must make love very important right? So we can agree on one thing. Love is very important and takes up quite a bit in every peoples life. Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and enkindles the great.       Comte de Bussy-Rabutin (1618-1693) We can´t be true caring sensitive and wise humans without love. It is very...
