Poem of the Day – Day 4

I went down to the river, I set down on the bank. I tried to think but couldn’t, So I jumped in and sank. I came up once and hollered! I came up twice and cried! If that water hadn’t a-been so cold I might’ve sunk and died. But it was Cold in that water! It was cold! I took…

Poem of the Day – Day 3

A Dream Within a Dream Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow– You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefor the less gone?…

Poem of the Day – Day 2

I am not yours, not lost in you Not lost, although I long to be Lost as a candle lit at noon Lost as a snowflake in the snow You love me, and I find you still A spirit beautiful and bright, Yet I am I, who long to be Lost as a light is lost in light Oh plunge…

The coffee beans are actually seeds inside of berries that grows on trees. Originally coffee…

Geek Heaven Hands on The Game of the Year

After my boyfriend and I bought ourselves the new iPad this fall we’ve been actively searching for games that we can play together (other than yatzy and Ticket to Ride) but it’s not that easy. We both love hidden objects games and the first one we found that we really enjoyed together was Drawn and Drawn 2. We found it…

The what if!

Have you ever played with the thought? The what if of your life or even someone else’s life? I’m guessing we all have. Sitting around making up ideas in our mind of how things would have been if we’d made different decisions in the past. We think that we see plausible outcomes of those decisions. If I’d gotten together with…

Depressingly rich?

Norway as one of the richest countries in the world has a growing problem. We have an upwards statistic curve of suicides and depression, and it’s not hard to get to the place where you assume that this subject is getting pushed under the rug. Statics show that over 80% of the people taking suicide visited their doctor in the…
