Photographer’s TOP 10 places in Norway

I really want to get to Senja as an alternative to Lofoten.

I’d bikepack carrying an inflatable kayak.

Hard Luck Hank – book 7

No books make me laugh more or harder than the Hard Luck Hank series.

In this one Hank is getting married. To an out-of-work actress.

She’s a Damakan. As a species they are capable of “broadcast empathy.” Their acting skills are so powerful they are able to make people believe their portrayals are literally happening—even over remote transmission.

This book mocks actors and a whole lot more.

I was happy to buy and download the audio version of …

Hard Luck Hank: Dumber Than Dead (2018)

Damages – season 4

Season 4 the weakest so far, I’d say.

The bad guys are High Star Security, something like the evil Blackwater, an American private military company.

The plot is WAY far fetched.

On the other hand, great performances from two actors kept me going.

Follow your Bliss

Joseph Campbell taught me this life principle:

“Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

For me that means DO the things I like best. Avoid the things I like least.

That includes people. I believe in Freedom of Speech. And also Freedom from Speech.

For example, if you support Trump I NEVER want to speak to you again for the rest of our lives.

An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena

Lapena channels her inner Agatha Christie in her 2018 novel.

It’s what Christie would call a ‘locked room mystery’. Lapena was inspired by the Victorian farmhouse north of Cobourg, Ontario, that she and her husband are restoring

Winter in the Catskills. A storm knocks out the power and closes roads. NO internet nor mobile phone service. No generator in the rustic lodge.

The first evening, Dana Hart tumbles down the grand staircase to her death. It seems to be an accident, but David Paley’s lawyerly instincts lead him to suspect murder.

When more guests begin to die in suspicious ways, panic spreads.

An excellent read. I recommend it.
