I feel human.

No, I haven’t stolen your post Eyal, even though I noticed you have an unpublished draft with that title. But without having read it, it put me on the idea on which I am embarking now.

I feel so human. Everything I do can be quantified, classified, solidified and categorized. Everything I do is so real. I am not swimming in the vastness of thought-time-space anymore, I am here, in the real world, with real people and real events. I have to obey the real world laws of physics, I can not bend time or energy to my will, and I get wet when I step in the water. I feel so human. I dream at night, long, short, disturbing, provoking, erotic, happy, sad and confusing dreams. I can touch, smell, see and hear things just as everyone else. I communicate with and observe the world around me in the same manners as you do. I laugh, cry, enjoy or despair at the same things. I feel human. Just human perhaps. Or? I have to follow the laws of men, still, I can do what I want to. I am held responsible for my actions and I think about consequence before I act. I breathe, eat, drink, sleep, love, hate, think, feel, wonder and learn. I must be human. I was born. I live.

And I will die.
I am human.

Am I limited still? By all the constrains of the real world, all the boundaries of humankind?

No.

Human? Perhaps.

Maintenance.

We have upgraded our core to WP 2.8 now. The database has also been backed up (which it is every month) and some minor cosmetical upgrades have been made to our theme.

We are currently having problems with our Akismet, but I suspect this will be straightened out very soon.
That is all.

H out.

Yes, indeed.

Georg’s post fits perfectly. Yesterday I went to see the new Harry Potter film, and in light of the subjects discussed in it, I wanted to say something about love as well.

According to Dumbledore, who never says it directly, love is the exact thing that makes Harry able to defeat Lord Voldemort in the end. Voldemort only knows one type of magic, the dark and evil kind, he does not understand the power of the light, and he does not know love. He doesn’t even have the ability to love. Yet love is the most powerful kind of magic there is, with the power to vanquish all evil and terror, to sweep away the dark and bring out the best in all of us. It is true in the end I think, that love does conquer all.

If we let ourselves love, be loved and be guided by our hearts, then I guess there is no force powerful enough to stop us in the end.

Love is actually all around.

High and Powerful

A few square metres…

… on different levels of Terminal 1 of the London Heathrow airport, that is the arrival and departure area. Nothing glamorous, nothing special and certainly not the place where you would expect to witness what makes the world go round. And what keeps us going.

When you come back from a journey and leave the luggage area there are always the people waiting to pick someone up. And they have a smile on their face. There is this happiness to see someone again they missed. For a long time, for a lifetime or just for a time that felt like a lifetime. You don’t see hate there, as it says very right in “Love actually”.

When you leave and go on a journey, you are one level up above the ones just coming back. If you watch closely, you will notice the completely opposite atmosphere. People leave, there are tears, the little boy cannot let go of his father, who cannot let go of his son. The mother does not want to cry, but cannot help it. There is the young couple who was fine until they reached the point when both realised that this means to say good-bye now. There is this guy with his girlfriend opposite my table and all of a sudden tears just run down his cheeks. It is sad to watch and it makes me feel with all those people. But there is something else that I in a way admire. Something we will never be able to see, never be able to understand.

It is what makes the world go round. What makes us human. And it is good to know it is there. Love.

Appologies.

For not writing. Calling. Texting. E-mailing. Or anything else that has anything to do with communication recently. I feel I have so many things I could write about, but never the energy to write anything, and it really annoys me. Starting now I have at least one week of vacation, back home in Trondheim even, so perhaps some writing energy will manifest itself there.

Hopefully, I will manage to speak to you very soon, there are certain summer plans that we need to discuss. Ok, I have to go now, got a boat to catch. Take care.

Oh, and this upgrade is also comming. Just a lot of WP installations to upgrade, but it’s on the to-do-list.

in a Hotel full of People.
