Does Joy B have a twin sister?

I woke up this morning with this strange feeling in my belly. I dreamt that i had a twin sister, she was acting a lot nicer then me. She gave me the creeps to be honest, total optimist and never cranky. She was smiling at me and saying things like, "wow your hair is perfect and where did you get such cool dr martins:" she was only saying to be kind to me. I woke up and i wasn't sure if this had been a dream or if she is really out there somewhere. Maybe in a parallel universe!!! Maybe when i run down to the bakery, i might run into her. No this is just a dream. There could never be two me!

Ok i admit it, i have wanderlust again. it means i got to wander off my island, but i can't just yet. got to enjoy the fact there are ONLY 280.000 people on the whole island. got to be thankful for the fact we are all related in one way or another. and if you meet some person for the first time you will after about 10 minutes find at least one person you both know quite well.

I wonder if one can get a cultural claustrophobia. last night a girl from Canada came for a visit, she had with her a video with a recording of TV show about Iceland, i happened to be in it and that is how we got to know each other, she found me on the internet. anyway most of my guests in Iceland are not from Iceland. all my Icelandic friends are too busy to come over for dinner or a visit. so thank god for the internet yet again... providing me with guests to my humble house once in a while.
it was nice to chat with someone that is for sure not related to me at all. but perhaps has more thought and ideas in common with me then most Icelanders....

anyway seeing myself on that Canadian TV show with French subtitles was funny
i wish i had a copy of it so i could laugh at it with my virtual friends that i am not sure if are real or hidden people...

oh free me from this wanderlust and let me go find my hidden friends in the house cliffs......

Emotional smothering


where are you
drifting in the cold
in the hot
not lost i hope

do the trains sing
on the tracks
are you onboard
driving towards a new destiny

where are you
as the cocoon of winter
lifts me up
and i am floating
in a deshavu sort of reality

doing everything else then i should be doing....

.... who doesn't know this rebellious and well silly kind of behaviour.....

I should be translating my novel to english.... and i do spend a fair amount of time every day doing just that....
.....but it is just sometimes so BORING,,,, so i find myself doing everything else...... then just that...
for example, i use the internet a lot that is google to see if i have the correct term for things in english
so today i looked up hair rolls in goggle images and yes hair rolls are indeed hair rolls as i thought.... now i should have gone straight back to WORD but did i ??? hell no.... i started to look at very boring photos of hair rolls ..... i did find a hillarious website with before and after at some local hair dresser somewhere in little town in smallville state... what ever,,,, but do you see my problem... tonight i went to look for a little heart because i couldn't be bothered to make one.... and what did i end up doing.... downloading all the images i could find of ... cupit and pshyce.... and that took me at least an hour... that i could have used translating...... arggg and what am i doing now.... writing in my virutal diary that no one reads....
that's it ..... }!L£&$(*$@£@*($&E*(@H@I$£&@(J

Love is .......

A group of professional people posed this question to a group
of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?" The answers they
got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.
See what you think:

....."When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over
and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it
for her all even when his hands got arthritis, too. That's Love.
Rebecca - age 8

....."When someone loves you, the way they say your name is
different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."
Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving
cologne and they go out and smell each other." Karl - age 5

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she
takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
Danny - age 7

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening
presents and listen," Bobby - age 7

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend
who you hate," Nikka - age 6

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still
friends even after they know each other so well." Tommy - age 6

"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone
else kissing me to sleep at night." Clare - age 6

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him
alone all day." Mary Ann - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and
little stars come out of you" Karen - age 7

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't
think it's gross." Mark - age 6

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you
mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget," Jessica - age 8


This website displays 20 sets of before and after photos of the tsunami disaster from air. It wasn't until i saw these images, specially those from Indonesia that i fully understood how devastating the wave was.

I don't know if you believe me
but i had started to believe that i would never see the sun again

this is how the weather has been for the last 2 months

Yesterday the sun showed her beautiful face, i went spellbound
to the ocean, i had not seen the ocean for about 2 months as well.
And my heart was filled with birds of spring, even if i know there
aint no spring yet. But that is how i felt. I felt as if it was possible
for theSun to be part of my life again. And she was dancing on the
currents of the ocean, and the rocks in the bay had ice as if
glazing and the seaweed felt so funny to walk on.
it was dead cold but now i am a believer. in theSun

isn't it just perfect..... i would have stayed for hours if the daylight would have lasted that long:)

viva the internet

the interesting part about the internet and the lighthouse we place there
is that many people are drawn to our world
that we might never have met
our creations never taken place
and so hail to the internet
to this manifestation of the collective
of the consciousness
of the dreams
and the speed
is faster then light

everything we ever thought
swirling curling through the night
into the dawn
of the possible

And the dark is multicolored fireworks

My heart is with all those suffering in our world. I think that we need to nurture those feelings of compassion that are blossoming within now. I think also it is important to nurture hope, joy and love. Not only now but always. I am vegetarian, been so for a long time. So i am not one of those that have to go on a diet after the holidays. But we didn't eat grass, or leaves as our festive food. I am a vegetarian but not a rabbit. OK. Since i am the only one that know how and can make myself happy i made sure to give myself a couple of brightmas gifts. I am totally thrilled with my new toy. Sometimes i think that i might be a bit abnormal because i really don't feel like i fit within any category. I love technical toys. I feel ever so happy if i get a good printer or a scanner. I love my laptop, i stroke it like a pet and say, "you are so beautiful, so fast, so swift" mmmm lets play darling. Well so i got a digital camera from myself this brightmas and it is so much fun, i have downloaded 350 photos on my puter. If you have good bandwidth then you should download my new years eve movie. If not then here are a few from the multicoloured sky. Icelanders have a tradition to blow up fireworks like no other nation at new years eve. Happy new year from Joy B and her creators.....
