had to wait a week to reveal my big news because I didn’t want to upstage anyone, but here it is:
I did of course borrow this from my namesister Ellen DeGeneres, and it was, as always, brilliant!
Happy -to see the final result of the writing and editing process
Humble -to be allowed to publish my poems
Humble – to be allowed to include my Moms poems as well
Excited -to see the cover and how well it works for my book
Grateful -to have my best friend and her mom as cover models
Glad -to have my second book published
A bit sad -that I never thought of doing this while my Mom still was
Wishing -I could talk to her right now
Hoping -for a telephone connection to heaven
Hoping -the rest of my family will appreciate the book
Hoping -people will like the book
Happy -to get this experience
Scared -to once again get my inner thoughts published
Scared -to put my neck out there
Humble -to be in a lyrical dialog with my Mom
Proud -to read my words in a published book
Happy -to do this book as a mom/grown daughter project
Excited -to hold my book
Glad -my book was finished by Christmas
Hoping -people will show up to my signing event tomorrow
Excited -to see how well my two books suit each other 🙂
This morning I got this great picture on my phone;
The packet neatly placed at the foot of Justin Bieber, was containing my new book!
The reason my books were delievered to a place with a Justin Bieber poster? I have the first book signing event tonight, in a perfumery downtown. Everything is ready, and I’ll be there in less than 40 minutes. 🙂 For those of you being in Norway, you will find me at Parfymelle Syrdalen in Arendal.
I love the blue hour! The blue hour is as most of you know the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light, and I just love it.
Today we wake up to this seasons first snow. It’s cold and the light was spectacular.
And it’s good to be inside 😉
And to wait for the trees to dress themselves as winter brides. This last photo was taken last winter, in Sweden.
