Julie A., M.A. Ross and Judy Corcoran: “When children feel they have to earn our love by what they accomplish, they never feel good about themselves, no matter how much they do, no matter what their age. Indeed, some adults work outrageous hours, make huge salaries, and always strive to accomplish more and yet are never satisfied, no matter what they have achieved. This is because they were never given the free, unconditional love of their parents, the love that is every child’s birthright.”

A first time for me, this afternoon, *very* close to home…ELG på veien!! (or MOOSE (North America) / ELK (EurAsia) on the road!! 🙂 )

These pictures are taken right where I exit the ‘main road’ for the small sand road at which I live, pretty pretty close to home!


Ha, this also shows that while I normally answer ‘Oslo’ when non-Norwegians ask me where in Norway I live, I do live *outside* of Oslo! 🙂
