Old memories

My husband once wrote a poem, which I thought was very beautiful, so I decided to make a video to it and got my grandson to compose og play music to it, for me.

The first two verses are as follows:

You walk your street,
old memories arise,
dreames of glory,
at dawn.

Fallen, but glad for the freedom,
finding in a new day,
nothing is as before,
the walk has come to an end.


Then comes more, which I am not going to translate now.  Maybe later.

Catch the goose while you can

I took a course in short film making, it was great fun, something I had never tried before.
When the course ended, I had dozens of ideas for short films, i started við microfilm I gave the title, Catch the goose while you can.

Of course the goose in the film was not hurt.

Have fun!

If you want to see the short film that we, the students, made at the course you can find it hereSee more>

Discipline is stupefying

protestDiscipline is much valued in human society.  We say it is important to be disciplined; that youth needs discipline as all people of all countries, even ourselves.  And then we beat our chests, like gorillas, and are very pleased with ourselves and all the discipline. Why?  Why do we believe that discipline is necessary? Can we truly say that discipline is necessary and beneficial, or is it perhaps sometimes harmful and hurtful for all of us, both the person who is being disciplined and society as a whole? Discipline is often accompanied by punishment, which in turn leads to unwanted side effects, such as dislike of those who penalize and the circumstances in which penalty is imposed.

Solitude is scary

loðvíðir 2It is scary to stand alone, to have no one to support us, to encourage and help when needed.
But if we truly desire to discover the truth, then we must dare to stand alone and unsupported, without all, no matter what happens, no matter how scary it is.
It is okay and quite safe to stand alone, because when everything is examined, then we can see that it is exactly what we are, all alone in the world, no one can come into our world and we cannot go anywhere, so we are alone and unsupported, and even though someone tries to encourage us, it is ultimately always we ourselves that have to do what is needed, take a decision and carry it out, and not others.
