Meet my new flatmate

So, this new girl moved in, you can spot her right?
upside down in the middle, seems all ready to fight

But no need for that, you are welcome to stay
As long as you like, you are not in my way

Live your life as you wish, in my pink orchid heaven
but please little lady - don't make more kids than seven:-)

I watch you and smile, my new flatmate, I think
almost invisible you are, can hardly spot you in the pink

But I know you are here. Still a life - and so small.
Perhaps I should give you a name I could call?


The world at my feet

Nothing beats that feeling deep
of joy and pride - can almost weep 
of happiness, that is, please know- 
we made it to the top - somehow
feet are tired, hearts beat fast 
our joy - the memory will always last

'cause what a feeling, to be on top 
after hiking, all non stop
through rain and storm we made it through
we climbed that mountain, me and you 

every time I get up there 
all I can do is sit and stare:
- the world in all its glory: the sea and the sky 
and I can't stop thinking - how lucky am I 

to have a day like that 
what a gift 

This is just where I want to be  
in the arms of that someone next to me

on that top 
and with the world at our feet

how lucky am I

enjoy the day
enjoy the moment
......getting there......

.....being there....

PS: There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.....:-) 


Malaga Moments

Lucky me, who recently got to travel, with a bunch of good colleagues, to the other side of Europe. From the west coast of Norway to the far south end of Spain - 4 hours on the plane. And what a joy: to travel to a place you have never been to before? Oh, yes, I like! Like Malaga, the 6th largest city in Spain, situated in Andalusia on the south coast. And an historic one: funded by the Phoenicians about 770 BC. A kinder-egg of a city, that's what I felt: so much to see, do and experience.

It was the perfect trip. Even though it was a work trip: the busy work schedule did allow a little time to explore. Just enough to make me curious for more. We had some gorgeous afternoon moments, just wandering down those narrow alleyways, next to cathedrals and on historic ground. We had an evening at the old castle, just on the top, overlooking the sunset over the blue sea and the green forest down below. We had an afternoon tapas - a meal that lead out into a long talk about life and love, and what it is all about. With the best people. And that was the best. The people. Just perfect.

These were my favourite Malaga Moments :

The bright blue sky and an architecture - it took my breath away:

The blue sky, blue sea, green hills - and an historic castle:

 Long tapas meals with good talks with the best people:

A new fancy flamenco outfit anyone?

Pablo Picasso, who was born in Malaga (and ladies: so was the actor Antonio Banderas by the way, we saw his house:-))

A myriad of small streets - most only for pedestrians

We came
We saw
We enjoyed
We left

- but what will remain - is: the memories, the good talks, the laughter, the funny moments, the emotional ones, the just-being-together-with-someone-you-enjoy-the-company-with-moments
- making memories together moments

- those moments:-)

Gracias, Malaga:-)


Love is it

To D

My big hit blogpost is In Love
- not a bomb, because we know-

- that love is wanted, love is IT
and lucky me, the spark got lit

by him who came along like that
when least expected, for a chat

and then he stayed. I felt it deep
This was it. He's one to keep

a gentle, kind and loving guy
they do exist, I now know why

'cause after hard times, love came by
embrace it now, don't question why!

With eyes wide open, I see him clear
and he sees me, from far and near

he - who shares my joy and pain
he - who stays -  through sun and rain

he - who loves my happy smile
he - who will walk that extra mile

- for me,
and so would I for him
don't you think - a clear win win?

he -
who like me, has seen a dark night

he -
who like me, just love that bright morning light

on a mountain top or at the edge of the sea

he -
who is the one for me
