The Arrow and the Song

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

On My Way Home in the month of May…

Happy Springtime

The weather changes between sun and showers on my walk. The wind is icy and a powerful burst containing hail almost makes me lose my breath. Then suddenly around a corner, I’m sheltered and the sun breaks through a dark blue-grey sky and nature sparkles and shines in the cold spring.

The Early Spring and Spring Pools

These pools that, though in forests, still reflect
The total sky almost without defect,
And like the flowers beside them, chill and shiver,
Will like the flowers beside them soon be gone,
And yet not out by any brook or river,
But up by roots to bring dark foliage on.

The trees that have it in their pent-up buds
To darken nature and be summer woods –
Let them think twice before they use their powers
To blot out and drink up and sweep away
These flowery waters and these watery flowers
From snow that melted only yesterday.
Robert Frost

Heart-Sweetening Light!

I went for a walk in Hornbaek some days ago. The village is an old Fishermen Village. The wind blew cold along the beach but in the woods along the shore there were shelter and tranquillity. The area is very popular especial during the summer. The beach is attractive and the village is cozy with narrow streets and old houses.
Very soon spring will be here ❤

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.”

A new year is like a blank book. The pen is in your hand. It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself.
Happy New Year

Cycling Without Age in Denmark

Jeg havde hørt om projektet i medierne; inviter de gamle mennesker med ud i en Rickshaw. Men pludselig dukker en hel kortege op på Brede Alle i Kongens Lyngby, Ole Kassow er naturligvis i spidsen.

Ole er også ophavsmand til den fantastiske idé. Her er et udpluk fra et interview med Ole i Cyklistforbundet:

“Som studerende for år tilbage arbejdede jeg på et plejehjem, og jeg oplevede, at beboerne blev taget hånd om på en god og professionel måde, men at de i det store og hele var isoleret inden for plejehjemmets mure. Sådan er det stadigvæk langt de fleste steder.

Der er ganske enkelt ikke ressourcer til mange individuelle ture ud i byen eller parken. Resultatet er, at det altoverskyggende største problem for ældre i dag er ensomhed og følelsen af isolation fra det samfund, som de engang var en del af.
Med den baggrundsviden fik jeg sidste år den skøre idé, at man måtte kunne bruge byens mange rickshaws til at give de ældre en god tur rundt i de kvarterer, hvor de selv har levet og cyklet gennem en menneskealder. Jeg lejede derfor en rickshaw for en dag og troppede op på det lokale plejehjem og tilbød en tur til beboerne.”

Brede Alle er en vej med et enestående miljø. Til den ene side ligger Frilandsmuseet og til den anden side snor Mølleåen sig igennem sivene. Langs med vejen står unikke gamle mosbegroede træer og skaber et magisk univers.
