Day of the roses

I so wish I could have been in Oslo today for what was initially intended to be a march in honour of Friday's victims. Everyone was advised to carry a rose as a symbol of solidarity. About 150 000 people turned up in the streets. As it turned out, it wasn't possible to march due to the huge number of people, but I don't think that really mattered much. After the event, people decided to decorate the town in flowers...

I have borrowed these photos from Ivan André Abelsen's facebook page. For more photos click here , here and here.

So what was my excuse for not taking part? Well, somebody had to stay home and look after the future generation... I watched the two hour long broadcast on TV of the speeches and the songs performed. It was impossible not to be moved.

Edited blog post

Due to everything that's been going on here in Norway this weekend, I’m not really in the mood to blog much.

On Saturday night Prince was meant to play Oslo and I was meant to be there. (The concert has of course been postponed.) I did have a Prince song posted here, but have decided to remove it as it might seem inappropriate. (My original blog post title was also unfortunate, I have realised.)

PS. In case you should wonder, I have not been directly affected by the tragic events that have taken place. Me, my family and my friends (as far as I know) are OK. As a Norwegian it's impossible not to feel affected today, though.

I hope to be back soon with more regular posts.

Can you see what it is? It's yet another retake on the famous Mona Lisa painting. It's actually called Mona Lisa Remix and it's by Graphic Nothing. As they say of this work: 'Makes no sense close up. Makes every sense from the other side of the room.' I love it and I'm thinking about putting her on my bathroom wall (to replace the Keep Calm poster...) I doubt it will make much sense from the other side of such a small room, though, but it's fun all the same.
