I had a dream

Dreams are seldom logical. Some days ago i had a dream where i was running thru an area where there, in real life, is no
Jogging tracks.
it felt wonderful to run, cause i didn't had to sweat

What is wonderwalla sweden?

I tried to navigate to a town in Sweden called Uddevalla using speak destinations in my cellphone. I came to a"Autorama Sweden", "Ottawa suite" and wonderwalla Sweden".
Then I wanted to find "Nordens Ark", which is a zoo for endangered species.
So, how will I pronounce to succeed?
One can use speak destinations in Hebrew and Latin in my Samsung cellphone, but not in Swedish.

Cruising to Riga

From Stockholm we took a ferry to Riga in a cabin with a window. We enjoyed the trip very much. A cuople of years ago we  went with an old ferry. We had a cab below the ferrys discobar. I promise! - it was impossible to sleep. I´m glad this ferry line is history.

Wainting for a midnight-train

                                                            Late  Midnight-
I love to travel by train - except when it´s after midnight and the train, which was expected to arrive 30 minutes after midnight was delayed one hour.
We were at Umea station in northern Sweden, and we took this late train because it would arrive after eleven o´clock in the morning the next day to Stockholm.
When we finally came to Stockholm, the train was almost two hours delayed. A german girl who was onboard the train missed her buss to Hamburg.
                                                                 
                                                                  New high-speed line
We decided to take flight next time, but I have not given up hope of jumping onboard a train again.  And there is hope: the new Bothnia line is to be finish this year, so one can take a high-speed train from Stockholm to Umea in about six hours.    
But, after all, we had plenty of time to listen to the birds when we were waiting for the midnight-train in Umea.

Like a ghost in the night

                                                                        Like a ghost in the night
We greeted friends who have a cottage on a lake. I brought a recording of a Black-throated loon or diver as I tried to attract loons on the lake to respond. In the bright summer night I let the noice roll out on the lake, and I was waiting for respond. It is a thrill to hear the noice of a Black-throated loon, because it sounds like a ghost in the night. The noice of the Black-throated loon have been used in horror films. I understand why.

I`m working just now on my own film, which will be publish later.

Close to nature

We live very close to nature, and we can see the forest from our window. Sometimes we can hear the Great spotted woodpecker, the one who had a red belly. Here is a lithuanian fairy-tale about a special woodpecker:

Bright summer night sky


I took this photo of the sunset sky at ten o'clock in the evening just Outside our door. It's wonderful to stand there and listen to songs from Willow tits, Warblers and other birds.

bogged down bird

The other day we sat on the patio when we heard a bird-perhaps a willow tit - that seemed to have become bogged down

From a woodpeckers view


                                                              Woodpecker with  Earmuffs                                          
In  the forest around my home town I can hear the great spotted woodpecker - except when
I´m w0rking with my Earmuffs.



                                                        

                                                           The shard
Even the woodpecker on my video to the right would get dizzy from the view below from Europe's tallest building. This would be something to hit for a native english Great spotted woodpecker.

Psychotic woodpecker?


Me and my wife were walking in the forest nearby our home. Then we heard a mystical voice.
When we approached the voice, we saw that it was a woodpecker.  It sat on a pole and chopped on a metal lantern. We thought that it was some kind of a psychotic depression - perhaps it had lost it´s partner.
When we investigated this we found out that woodpeckers often chopps at metal in order to attract a partner. It has learnt to use our devices.
