I wonder how long I would last in this hotel room


Solitude, Mobile Hotel Room, Andalsnes, Norway


“As soon as we are alone…inner chaos opens up in us. This chaos can be so disturbing and so confusing that we can hardly wait to get busy again. Entering a private room and shutting the door, therefore, does not mean that we immediately shut out all our inner doubts, anxieties, fears, bad memories, unresolved conflicts, angry feelings and impulsive desires. On the contrary, when we have removed our outer distraction, we often find that our inner distraction manifest themselves to us in full force. We often use the outer distractions to shield ourselves from the interior noises. This makes the discipline of solitude all the more important.”

↓ click for audio (So Sweet – Maria Mena)

“…cool and soothing…the wind is in your hair…not a single care…the speed of moving…feels like you can fly… feeling kinda high…beneath the big blue sky…you let go and landed on your feet…and it felt so sweet…there’s nothing more that can hold you back now…Amelia, you always had what you finally found…you’re on your way…your fears are behind you…morning glory…shines upon your face…not a single trace…of years all gone to waste…oh now here’s a story…full of hope and light…you didn’t win without a fight…now here’s to your delight…you let go and landed on your feet …and it felt so sweet…there’s nothing more that can hold you back now…”

 

Sunday Morning: Fly…

Good Sunday Morning. Let me make two points here: 1) I would NEVER do this. 2) Wow! I could not stop watching.  Base Jumping at Mirror Lake, Norway.  Breathtaking landscape.  Exhilarating flight.
