norway mourning

Places that evoke happy memories of  carefree summer, sun and  strawberries have become tainted. Friday and Saturday I became glued to the internet as my Facebook (fb) and txt messages went to friends in Norway. Tragedy had struck close to where I used to live and work 10 years ago.

Chasing the devil
