Back to Norway

the yardYes, "Back to Norway!" as Klaus Dinger from Neu! so memorably hollered in song.

I've been out of the country for two weeks, and now I have returned. Everything here in Oslo seems pretty much the way I left it, but in the first hours after my arrival, it seemed like I'd lived a whole life in the interim, like I'd been away in Ireland for a hundred years. But despite feeling disconcertingly different, I simply picked up my life from where I left off.

I had been feeling fairly glum about employment prospects and impending financial doom, but I am pleased to find myself in a snowfield of optimism. The bar project is going very well, and this block is fast becoming the most interesting part of the city. I probably need a proper job to keep the wolves from the door, but for the moment I will be able to live, work, and even record music all in the same building.

Here's the yard, in a picture taken today. A godt nyttår to you all.
