[Photo Journal] White Wilderness Of Norway


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

I have started sharing some of the photos taken this year from Norway. So grateful that I have wonderful friends who are willing to spend time touring their beautiful city with us. It was not winter when we visited Bergen, but summer! But there is ice, and lots of snow-capped hills and mountains.

White Wilderness Of Norway

“Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.” 
― Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

“I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter.” 
― T.S. Eliot

“In the winter she curls up around a good book and dreams away the cold.” 
― Ben Aaronovitch, Broken Homes

“Winter is not a season, it’s an occupation.” 
― Sinclair Lewis

For among these winters there is one so endlessly winter that only by wintering through it will your heart survive. 
– Rilke” 
― Maggie Stiefvater, Forever
