To Ellen

This blog is made to the honor of my grandmother Ellen Elisabeth Thomsen who was a modern woman .
She was born in Randers in Denmark 1895 and died in Copenhagen 1976.
She had long salmon red hair down to her hips. It was braided and put up with lots of hairpins to make it look short.

Used to love this picture when I was young, it was not the romance in it, but the
union of plants animals and humans in a lovely midday. Just like my life used to be.
Now when living in a town, most of the time I can't look at the whole view with joy.

The Wind

The feeling of flying was extra easy to imagine in that outfit. I was flying around the room.
