Last Friday I went to see Pow Pow at Rockefeller's 25th anniversary concert- a band that just might be Norway's best and most exciting live band. Every time I see them I get dragged into their very own and totally electrifying universe of progressive and instrumental pop - and walk amazed and impressed. It's creative and innovative, yet catchy! You can, and most definitely should, buy their critical acclaimed album Last Days On Earth.

Today I never managed to get out of my apartment. Quite unlike me, actually. I'd like to blame the weather; it's been really snowy and the snow blocks the daylight from getting through my windows - hence I slept until afternoon today and led to a lazy day taking it at pace: Candle lights, blankets, tea, music, blog-surfin and Patti Smith's Just Kids. And then The Sartorialist posted this truly inspiring documentary on his blog about his work - made my day. Love. Tomorrow I'll go out and watch people too.

Sometimes a new year seems like some kind of blessing. For me 2010, especially the last part of it, has been really intense - in every kind of way: We lost our beloved dad and our dear mum has been fighting cancer; hence I never got to Mexico - but I went exploring NYC for three weeks and got a whole lot of inspiration and impulses instead; I've had career challenges and opportunities; I'm privileged with fabulous friends and family - some new, some old, some even pregnant; hey - it even brought me into the crazy world of blogging! It feels good to take a break and think about the year passed - and the best way to seize the days ahead.
I'll start by breathing out and wish you all the very best for the year of 2011:
Let's make the most of it.
