new country, new blog

I wasn’t quite sure if this blogging thing was right for me. That’s why I kept quiet for ages, and let my old page turn dusty.

Now I’ve got a second wind, after the talented hjartesmil worked her magic and created this new, pretty page for me.

So much has happened in my life in the last 6 months. New country, new home, new job, new daily life, new routines, new existence. Baby boy due in 8 weeks. Matt practicing his Norwegian with me every night at the dinner table. Feeling like life is starting again, somehow, and that the past is just a distant dream. All thanks to this growing presence within, the one I can feel, but who I don’t know yet. It’s a beautiful thing.

home.

Seeing the road ahead, and knowing that it’s mine to walk. These are the things that are rightfully mine, the trees and the flowers, the air and the endless horizon. To be so at absolute peace about what’s going to happen next, that it almost doesn’t matter. That is what it means to be home.
