Current song: Steven Wilson - Deform to Form A Star
Most of my fellow North-Western Europeans disgust it. I can't help but just... adore it.
WINTER, I mean, true Winter, with ice covering the canals and (if only) the big rivers, and a lovely white blanket of snow covering the countryside. A gorgeous SUN and a lovely blue sky to match. Friggin' Beautiful!

Rather funny, however, is to witness how my country's public transport system completely COLLAPSES (
The Spirit of Nature once again showing - commanding - the Limitations of Earth's Mankind's feeling that "we have it all under our own controll", forcing all of us to just *ACCEPT* the situation, and to calm down on our overstressed, overhyped feelings of our own so-called 'importance'.
Well no, we are NOT important - Nature still RULES, and it doesn't hurt to get reminded of that fact, once in a while.
All HAILS, my dear King Winter!
My country hit a record -22.9 degrees Celsius last night. A record since 1958.
And if I hadn't made it clear enough already, I just LOVE it! Just a couple of extra clothes - my collection of Norwegian- and Andes- pure woolen knitwork comes in rather handy right now, let alone my regular Alpine skiing outfit -, my little gas heaters are doing well, and I just cannot help but marvell at the sight at night-time at the lovely, clear STARS all shining over us now.
Birdman, however, doesn't like it at all. Rather funny to know that he's a genuine Frisian - you'd think those folks would enjoy this, no?
Alvestêdetocht, in other words, the Elfstedentocht coming closer again this year? Wouldn't mind it to happen, I'll surely be watching it, if - may - it come to be. :-D
