Steven Spielberg: “My parents taught me how to listen to everybody before I made up my own mind. When you listen, you learn. You absorb like a sponge-and your life becomes so much better than when you are just trying to be listened to all the time.”

Lois McMaster Bujold: “It’s important that someone celebrate our existence… People are the only mirror we have to see ourselves in. The domain of all meaning. All virtue, all evil, are contained only in people. There is none in the universe at large. Solitary confinement is a punishment in every human culture.”

Angus & Julia Stone in Concert!!

November 17th, 2014 on 23:47

For years I have been wanting to see Angus & Julia Stone (a brother and sister) performing live. I really got into their music in 2011 and still remember finding out just days after the concert date (May 17. 2011) that they would play in Oslo, which I missed. Even worse, they stopped performing together shortly after, so my chances of seeing them live reduced to 0. Or so I thought…well, things changed for the good; they are back together, released a new album this summer and…performed in Oslo tonight!! A magical show…FAN-TAS-TIC! :)
(the pictures below show a lot, though they don’t capture the true experience…)
