My name is Trini Lind and I am a freelance writer. I come from a coastal city called Stavanger on the South-West coast of Norway.
My site, «Paths of the Spirit”, is mostly dedicated to Art, Photography, Spirituality and Poetry, but you will also find articles and short stories.
I am fascinated by the journey we all go through, not just the physical journey without, but the psychological and spiritual journey within. I believe we have come here to fulfill our highest potential, as individuals as well as a unity.
I have my academic background in Psychology, Developmental Psychology (specializing in Highly Sensitive Children), Comparative Religion and Multiculturalism.
I have previously worked with HSP children, underprivileged children in developing countries, teenage girls with eating disorders, and minority children. I have also conducted Fairy Tale workshops for small children and Youth Groups for teenagers.
I have published articles in newspapers, magazines and online subscriptions about spirituality, eating disorders, and underprivileged Children. I have also had poems and short stories published in children’s magazines and other publications.
Being artistic I love everything that allows me to be creative! I love to paint and draw, I love music and singing, traveling and cooking, and I have a soft spot for vintage fashion (I worked in a vintage shop all through college and was paid in clothes instead of money!).
I hope you will enjoy my site!
Thanks for stopping by!
we used to have this dude on the radio decades ago. hans petersen dude was into be of norwegian descent. i lament his abscence
Lovely photos + fascinating blog! 🙂
Thank you so much!
You have a lovely blog. I’m so glad I found you!
Oh, thank you so so much! 💖💖💖. Have to go visit yours now 😊😊. See you there! 💖
And [this card I drew for you today], translates as such:
“Meaning and Reward
Should life give you thorns, just stop for a moment! Take a step back, do nothing – and look at it closely. There is a part of you that has caused life to summon them up for you, so as to allow you to grow even more deeply into the love for yourself. The beauty and the depth of your love is the reward for painful moments.”
Fullmoon healing blessings today, and
Sooo much Love to you always, Trini!
Thank you so much! 😊😊☃️🥀🙏🏻🥀☃️
And postscript, too, can melt away now, loveliest little angel 👼💞👼
I think I sometimes get your energy (vibes) because how you live your life seems like a dream when I am walking.

What a lovely site. It’s a little hard to read for old eyes but your works come through quite well. Your hat looks fantastic on you as you bask in nature. Lovely, just lovely!
Thank you! 🙂 Is it because of the background it is hard to read, or are the letters too small?
The letters are fine, it would be the background. Please don’t change it as it matches your hat and words so well! :o)
🙂 I thought so. I had someone else telling me that too. But even I thought like you say that the backgroun matches everything so beautifully so I will let it be there. But I can look into changing fonts or something, to make the letters stand out more, at least in the sidebar and comments 🙂
It is fine. Thank you for taking the time to note it! :o)
🙂 Of course! 🙂
Thanks for the follow, Trini!
🙂 Your blog is lovely! 🙂
