When I found out I was going to be at work for Earth hour this year, I got really excited.

The last day I was at work before christmas, the power went off. and stayed off for hours. Even though it was fairly stressfull (200 guests, no control of which rooms to give them…), one thing I really liked was all the candles I lit ALL OVER the reception.

And now, I got to light all those candles again, and the recption almost looks magical. Its really cosy, and serene, and we are making a stand while we’re enjoying 32 little flames on blue and green candles.

I have photos on my phone. will share them as soon as I can.

Lights off, everyone ! 😀

The Norwegian Whaling quota for 2010:  

1286

The Norwegian govenment’s reason for whaling:

Its an important part of the Norwegian diet and an important part of the Norwegian culture

                

The government is lying. I am Norwegian. From an island. I have NEVER eaten whale meat. I have never seen whale meat on the dinnertable. Not in my home, nor in anyone else’s home.

Whaling is wrong. Its barbaric, disgusting and shamefull.

Stop Whaling NOW!

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society are asking for people to help and support Captain Peter Bethune.

Bethune boarded the Japanese whaling ship Shonan Maru No2 on February 15, to serve the captain a citizen’s arrest warrant, after Shonan Maru No2 rammed and sank the Ady Gil (of which Bethune was captain). The Shonan Maru No2 immediately set sail back home to Japan to hand Bethune over to the Japanese government.

Bethune is currently in a cell in Tokyo, waiting for formal charges to be pressed.

If you wish to read more about this case you can go on to the Sea Shepherd website (http://www.seashepherd.org/matilda/support-captain-bethune.html)

On the same site you will also find ways of helping and supporting Bethune.

Not that my opinion matters greatly, but I’ll put in my two cents anyway.
When I first hear about the boarding, I thought “not again, this is just plain stupidity”.
Memories of Pottsy and Giles boarding a Japanese whaling ship only a few years back popped into mind. They were released, and brought back to the Steve Irwin, but I immediately knew that Bethune would not be released. The whalers have stated before that if anything like this ever happened again, the person (s) boarding their ships would be brought back to Japan and charged. They stayed true to their words.

However wrong boarding someone else’s ship might be, I still support Bethune’s choice, and will do what I can to help. On January 6, the Shonan Maru No2 rammed the Ady Gil, causing it to take in water and eventually sink. One of the crew members on the Ady Gil was injured, but luckily he wasnt hurt too bad. Also, it could have easliy had a much worse turnout. Losing a ship is one thing, but it could easily have resulted in lives lost. Which is just NOT acceptable. Bethune boarded the Shonan Maru No2 to make a statement to just that. Ramming and sinking his ship, and jeapordizing his own, and his crew members’ lives, while not taking responsibility for it is wrong. Bethune boarded the Japanese ship to make a stand and to let them know that their behaviour is NOT acceptable.
There have been absolutely NO legal matters as result of the Shonan Maru No2 ramming the Ady Gil!!! 

Support the Sea Sheoherds, and support Bethune. With no legal action taken against the Shonan Maru No2, there should be no legal action taken against Behtune either!

For you who think that the road doesn’t go anywhere, that life is only a struggle, that hope is fading fast.

The road DOES lead to somewhere.

I have been down, I have cried and I have fought my way through all the crap that I had come to believe that was my life.

The spring is here. The sun is out. I am making plans, making decitions. I can truly see that the road is going forward. It might be a clichè, and it might be cheesy, but it needed to be said.

I feel happy. Truly happy. I know there will be more struggles, and I know it wont always be easy. But it is easy today. And if its easy today, then tomorrow could easily be easy too.

When the road is dark and you are on the floor screaming, trust my words when I say, that the road leads somewhere. And it is worth the fight.

Keep walking 😀

Here it comes in the morning
I’m just trying to forget
Keep it real, keep it simple
And somehow just get out of bed
And this city is endless
I’m as cold as it’s stone
Yeah this city is endless
And I’m, I’m walking alone

CHORUS

Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there’s no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend ‘til I’m almost certain
It’s a beautiful world

I wanna ask for direction
But I don’t dare to disturb
I got a thing with affections
Yeah, that’s why I’m walking alone

CHORUS

Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there’s no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend ‘til I’m almost certain
It’s a beautiful world

Here it comes in the morning…

CHORUS

Sunlight creeps in between the curtains
Lose the sheets there’s no time for sleep
I lie, I pretend ‘til I’m almost certain
It’s a beautiful world
(Yeah, it’s a beautiful world)
la la la la
I pretend ‘til I’m almost certain
It’s a beautiful world

Yesterday, all the snow was almost gone. The hills turned green, and the trees were naked once again. The roads were bare, pavement black. What a beautiful sight it was, after nearly three months of snow and ice.

Today, the snow is falling once more. And there was a fifteen minute window just now, where the wind tossed the falling snow around in circles. I almost held my breath, as I stood there waiting to see if the snow would ever land. I am ready for spring. I love spring. I was okay with the snow being gone.

But it does look pretty though. Standing inside, looking out, as the snow is falling…
