Love is such a wonderful word because it can be used in so many ways and in connetion with so many things in addition to romantic love.

Today I am surfing the lovely happy waves created by my love of learning as I have joined a class and started studying something new and very interesting (se below for details). My feeling are in some ways fairly close to being in love even though it is not to a person.

Conflicts and quarrells with close ones are the worst kind, those persons are the ones most capable of hurting us with their words and actions and they are the ones that most of all reduce us to the most childish behaviours. They are the ones we keep repeating old patterns with so that we nearly know all the scenes and lines by heart but still play them through even if we now we will not win this time either. And yet we know that life has to go on and the connetion too. Tomorrow and next week or month or year we will still be in the same relationship - still dearly love each other. In short, love means that we carry along some history with good parts as well as burdens.

It is said that it takes a whole village to raise a child and also it is cynically said that a mother can support ten children but ten children cannot support a mother. The common thread in these sayings is that love and care is best done as a thing done together both to complement each other but also to share responsibilities and sometimes the burdens that loving someone may also bring.

About a week ago I met a former student of mine at the grocery store. He was there with his baby and girlfriend and I was so happy to get to know that he was happy, had a family and a job. Today I met another former student who has had a small break due to not getting into the study he wanted this autumn. He had now started in a job while applying for a study place the coming autumn. That too warmed a former teacher’s heart because of course we worry when we hear bad news in connection with students that over 3 years time naturally each carved a special place in our hearts.

In connection with a March 8th concert Kim Friele one of the most important fighters here in Norway for Gay rights especially in the early years, held a speach. As a teacher I am so happy to know that life has become so much easier for the young persons finding out that they belong to a minority in when it comes to whom they fall in love with. This one is for you.

What makes us love a person either as a friend, a partner or a mamber of our group is incredibly complicated, fortunately, and that means that most of us are able to find people to love and be loved by. How it works is sometimes a mystery - a wonderful mystery.

Another wonderful thing is that we seem to have an unlimeted supply of love which is good for us teachers that keep getting new students and in a short time we dearly love a new group of 30 individuals.

Love can bring us the biggest happiness but also be what crushes us. Loving someone who is loving you back is wonderful but that same love has an equal power to hurt us if that person disappoints us, hurt us or worst of all leaves us. But even though love also brings some sadness, we do need to keep loving each other as lovers, friends and family. Hugs from me.

Today, the 8th of March - The International Women's Day I want to celebrate what women can do working together. There is still a few very important things to left to fight for or against like FGM, childbrides, forced marriages, and the feat...uscide or infanticide in areas where only boychildren has any value. Let's work together for our sisters around the world.

Today after having had the parent teacher conferences where the love and care we all feel for the young persons is the common denominator for everything in the talks, I feel quite high. Such wonderful teenagers and such wonderful parents.

These days parent teacher conferences is the big thing at my work. One of the important things when working with people is to hang in there. Both the students have to keep working, hanging in there, but also us teachers and parents have to... keep encouraging, motivating, believing in the teenagers no matter what and most of all loving them. That is not always easy for parents or for teachers when the hormons run at the highest and they struggle to find themselves and all the rest that goes with moving from being a child towards adulthood. Some days just hanging in there is all we all manage, and maybe that is enough :-)

These days the birds have started serenading and doing the spring clean up of the nests. How do I know? Some males sing very much in the morning and my cats have brought in the first sample of a bird nest's flea. :-)

Nå begynner våren å få... tak. Et par hannfugler synger som gale om morgenen og vårrengjøringen av reir har begynt. Det vet jeg fordi katten har dratt inn den første fugleloppa.

This one sold within the hour of posting it on facebook last night.

Saturday, March 02, 2013

I am working as a teacher for 12-16 year olds and now that spring is coming there is a lot of love starting to grow. At that age love is not only a very personal thing but a social thing, especially in some girl groups who discuss every aspect of the relationships starting or ending or possibly becoming. What he said and she said and did and how to make him see her etc not to mention if two girls wants the same boy or one steals one... Lots of thoughts and emotions and time being put into it.
