Vigeland Park – not quite as erotic as you might think.

Inspired of the wonderful, sunny weather me and my wife had a trip to the famous Vigeland Park in Oslo today. We love this opportunity to a quality time together, walking around in inspirational surroundings and share thoughts from the bottom of our hearts. We are there – intensively together and deeply involved in reaching the others meaning – the time stands still, and the conversation is rinsing our minds. The thoughts we shared are of course private, but I’ll gladly share the park with you!

I make Mr. Wonka – pasted from the web – who visited the Park in December 2003, mine: “The 212 naked bodies sculpted of bronze and granite in Vigelandsparken by Gustav Vigeland is not quite as erotic as you might think. In fact, the cycles of life these sculptures depict are anything but sexual. Okay, everyone takes away his or her own personal observations and thoughts about Vigeland’s mind-boggling collection of work. But that’s what makes a visit to the park a requisite for any visit to Oslo. No one opinion about what you’ll see here is right or wrong—it’s all about personal interpretation.”

As you can see from the pics Vigeland is describing peoples natural feelings in every details as they coddles together in varies life time situations. So alive, yet in stone, they are expressively inspiring the soul of mankind. It says you can have private, intimate and stimulating conversations on a golf curse. I would say Vigeland Parks invites in the same kind of atmosphere.

Speaking about inspirational talk: You can tell this wise man is telling his history to a well listening audience. The mature man is sharing his knowledge and experience in life in a trustful and open-minded way I would say. Looking at those people – and it is “only” a sculpture – you see and feel how they all in an expressional way enjoy the lecture.

The Park is very much alive and friendly, full of people even on a relatively cold day in November. A lot of tourists from all over the world it is easy to hear, as the native tongues expression are from all parts of the world. Colourful contributions as a pleasure for you’re ears as well as eyes are making the walk around a wonderful experience each and every day you are visiting.

You will find more information about Vigeland and the park here. And of course you are welcome to take a round tour any time when you are visiting the capital of Norway!

The moon is shining so brightly

On my way from home to the office yesterday, I obeserved a lovely fall scenery – the moon was shinging so brightly. I was thinking: why worship the sun as it shines only at day when daylights after all? The sun is much braver and helpfull as shining at night! So I had to capture this fenomena and as easy as always, I used my celluar phone camera. It was 7:21 AM and to quote Louis Armstrong: “Ohhh what a beautiful morning, oh what a wonderful day”:-)

We are moving against the winter season in Norway and then the days are short and it is fairly cold. But the Norwegians saying is: “there is no such as bad weather, only bad cloths”. So we manage and really are enjoying the mysterius snow covered landskape. And of course we should ->we all are born with skies on they say:-)

How cold is it and how dark/bright is it then? Well from the net I’ve found some facts and figures from the 18th of November 2005:
UV Index: 0 Low – Wind: From NW at 5 mph – Humidity: 56% – Pressure: 30.06 in. – Dew Point: 23°F – Visibility: 6.2 miles.
And the sun set and rise: 8:22 AM – 3:39 PM.

Some may ask: Isn’t Norway the Land of the Midnight Sun? The answer is yes of course, but it is up north – on top of the world. At that part the sun is not up from November to February, but then again the sun never set in the summer time. Imagion a place where there are far below freezing in the winter and a natrual posibilety to get tanned at 2 AM. It’s a great place for candle light lovers in the winter and a place to charge you’re soule batteries day and nights in the summer time.

Don’t miss the chance to visit the mystifying country!
