Between Hills and Mountains

This is the fjord in which arms I was born. 😊 It is in Rogaland, Norway.

    • Yes, that is what is good about Norwegian cities, they are never overwhelmed and congested, due to the low population, and also I think, Norwegian people’s love for nature. The drawback is that there isn’t much diversity, and when the population is low you can’t be anonymous, and you will never have artistic and entrepreneurial success either, unless you conform. It is funny, Norway pushes individualism and independency before everything else, yet that individualism is limited to the cultural norms that are already in place. That is why, I think, many artistic people in Norway, like myself, are drawn to more diverse cities such as London, New York, Paris etc.

    • Thank you so much! πŸ’–πŸ˜Š. There are many reasons why I left it, but the nature has certainly nothing to do with it! In my latest post I’ve mentioned little bit of the reason why: to find my feet. I need those too. And Norway, the cultural and political Norway, not the land itself, has never really let me use my feet. Or maybe it is a Viking thing πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„. The Vikings had word called “Utreisetrang” which means “A need to journey out”, it is basically our need to explore, for adventure, and I think I was born with a lot of that πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
