In the haze

I am a bit all over the place these days. One moment I'm so happy I can't feel my toes, the next I'm utterly frustrated, sad or incredibly mad, so mad I shake and want to destroy things and yell. I have a lot of work, a little too much maybe, and while I really enjoy it and love it, I also sometimes feel like I haven't got enough time to do it all. Thankfully, I have some patient friends that are always there, I try and enjoy the many train hours with a book, and I discovered the 'Discover' function in Spotify. So there are good things!
I have a desk at the newspaper the next few weeks and it's so wonderful to be back. Plus, the view isn't bad either...
The other day I had lunch at Torvehallerne in between two interviews. The sun was out for a brief appearance and it made the colours of the fresh produce stand out so beautifully.
This week, I finally finished reading East of Eden. I've been reading bits of it every time I'm in the train and occasionally on the sofa for a half hour break, and I don't think it's taken me so long to read something before. It's got nothing to do with the book; it's my favourite and it's the third or fourth time I read it, but I just haven't had the time to really sit down and read for hours. If you haven't read it, please do. It's worth the time and thought.
On Sunday, it snowed and snowed. I had a brunch date with AnCa in the city and it was such an ordeal getting there. There was so much snow up north and it was cold and slippery. In the city, there were just little patches of white...
On Monday, the sun shone brightly. I skated down to the station and went into the city to do an interview. I haven't enjoyed an interview so much in a long time. We did it walking around Østerbro; it was cold, but beautiful, and we took the time to talk. It was marvelous, and now I'm enjoying writing the whole thing.
After the interview I took a walk around the lakes to clear my head. I called up Chris and we went for lunch. I didn't actually had the time for it, but I didn't care, and it felt so good just saying 'to hell with it'. Plus, the weather was so good!
I love how the windows make the light dance across the buildings.
Copenhagen in a chilly blue. I miss that colour now that it's back to grey...

jeg krysser fingrene for litt blå himmel i København i januar også, for å, så fint det er. bildene dine er fine uansett da, og jeg kjenner meg veldig igjen i det å balansere så så mye mellom den ene og den andre følelsen. men jeg tror også at det ordner seg, for oss begge. lykke til med alt! det går nok fint. :)

Ja, mon ikke der kan komme lidt lys over januar også :)
Håber, det ordner sig. Nogle gange kommer der bare perioder, hvor man er lidt mere svingende i humør end ellers :) Glæder mig til at hilse på dig til januar!
