I don’t ever want to stop seeing. I mean really seeing. Living amongst the fjords and mountains of western Norway, it is difficult be unimpressed by the surroundings. But I don’t want to be impressed; I want more than that. I am not one who wants to climb the highest mountain in the fastest time, or explore areas that have never been touched by humans. That is not for me.

I want to feel how it is to climb out of the tent early in the morning with fog coming rolling down the valley until it completely engulfs you. Or sit one evening on a cliff high over the fjord with a coffee in hand, feeling that right then, there is no other place to be. I don’t want to wait until it’s too late.

I want to have time for these moments. I think we should all make time.
