How Things Come Back

My biggest and overwhelming fear as a child was the atomic cloud, as many in my generation. We were growing up in the last phase of the cold war. Norway was a friend to the U.S and a neighbour to Russia.

In the Arctic we're on eachother's doorstep.

These last days the anxious feeling of unsafety has returned, even though Japan is far away. I guess there's nothing else for us to do than to live our everyday lives. And help.

Do you remember Monchhichi from the 80s?monchhichi dolls from the 80s.

(I promise you more lightness in the weekend!)

It's hard, isn't it? To find the balance of being so sad, worrying, and living your life.

All our thoughts are turned to Japan since a week, and will be for many weeks; The best way to react is to enjoy every minute, every little happiness put on our roads..

It is sad that our children cannot escape the fear we grew up with as a child. I remember being terrified of a third World War breaking out. Did you ever seen a movie called the Last Day! We have kept the news off the past few days. I don't want the children to feel that kind of stress.

That was my greatest fear, too, growing up in the US. I also had an irrational fear of tsunamis (we lived miles from the coast behind a mountain range....)
