A lovely day for John and Ellinor
Ellinor walked out of the house without the scarf her mother had told hear to wear, it was chilly outside, because she wanted to be a rebel. She was 10 and a half and felt very grown up on that Saturday morning when she walked out to meet a boy. John waited nearby in a park, slightly shoving around the sand underneath his basket ball shoes as he sat on the cold park bench. He pulled his green coat tighter around him to evade the cold winds, nervously gazing after a girl with fire red hair. She walked slowly away from her street where she had always lived – where she knew every nook and cranny. Her fingers inside her mustard yellow glo

Catherine is coming to town: pre story
- I love you but we’re not working anymore. - What are you saying? You’re leaving? They looked at each other in that instant as she said it, helpless and in pain, they knew it was over, it really had been for months, but it wasn’t until now either of them had said the words out loud. - I think I’ve found someone else, he said. She looked down on her engagement ring as the tears started filling up her eyes, she didn’t know what to say. It had always been them, they were stable and strong – happy – happy...ish. She had seen her life with him, they had talked about growing old and which countries to se

Home sweet home
It felt like she had driven for miles on end, for days, but now she parked her rusty car in front of the ocean. All she could hear was the seagulls, not a person in sight except for herself. The sun was up but had just an hour or so ago begun its travels on the sky. It was early spring so the sand was splotchy with areas of not yet melted snow but the ocean had already rid itself of the restraining ice, that forced it to calm down during the winter months. The sky was a mix between light blue and grey , the sun hid shyly behind the clouds. Far away she could hear the waves clash against the shore. Not aggresively but like a love story of a

A missed day
The fog wraps the buildings in, make them seem shorter and taller at the same time, the cherry blossoms fall down and are swiftly taken by the wind along the numeorous city streets, the clouds in the sky are heavy with the first rain of spring, ready to let it go - it falls, you don't look around, you huddle under your umbrella and hurry home - you miss it all.

Laughing through life
Live life, breathe, touch the sky, laugh -- find what makes you happy and do it over and over again, find who makes -- your butterflies escape your chest and don't let go, chase your dreams and have no regrets, no ifs, smile to strangers, give money to homeless, dance in the rain, why -- because you can, break your limits, open your ribcage, let life, joy, love into your heart, be free - for real, chase your dreams, even the insane ones -- believe in hope, trust your abilities, climb mountains, reach out a hand -- and touch the stars!

Why online volunteer?
Why online volunteer? – A qualitative study about motivations to engage and work for free at an art-oriented online community AbstractPeople, today, use the Internet more and more for everything and there are courses on different aspects of our Internet use: social media, leadership, and networks. However, there is not much said about volunteering online, despite many active online volunteers who work several hours each day. It is relevant to know what inspires and motivates a person to volunteer to keep him or her motivated to continue to do so and to be able to get new volunteers. To find out what makes someone volunteer online, espec

A moist scent flies over the streets, the fragile gold fall, get caught in the winds, a nervous hand clutches another, gloveless and warm despite the rain, the sky paints with grey, while the asphalt points the way to Oz; I think it's fall.

4 seasons
Early March The crystals of the frost lies upon the small wonders, underneath, peering up, a birthday cake out on a bench, cold trembeling fingers light candles, a rose red mouth blow them out, the sun shines through the bare branches, soon filled with shade for the lovers, a birthday wish for warmer weather and complete hearts the lovers entwine. ~ Summer rain Asphalt wet, flower scents, warm drops on my face, summer warmth all around, umbrellas forgotten at home, jackets still on hangers, I dance ahead, you look at me, smiling, I turn around and laugh, asphalt wet, flower scents, warm drops on my face, summer warmt

Winter romance
Lie here next to me when the snow ravage the land and the roses wither away under the frost, hold me close and whisper stardust in my ear, and warm me during the nights with howling storms, I won't ask for your heart or your future, just your embrace during the blackest nights of winter.

Emotion
Within a drop - an unknown world, secrets, outside, reflections, polished by the burning sun, a fall from the cheek to the cloth, a drop no more a thousand worlds more to come, they run, get preyed upon a feast for the cloth, a scream from the eye.

Hook, line and sinker
My longing for you is insatiable, neverending, every time I hear something from you I just want you more, eat and drink your love, bathe in it, roll around with it and foremost lie within it. I fell in love and swallowed the bait and you've got me h                           o                           o              &#1

Summer rain
Asphalt wet, flower scents, warm drops on my face, summer warmth all around, umbrellas forgotten at home, jackets still on hangers, I dance ahead, you look at me, smiling, I turn around and laugh, asphalt wet, flower scents, warm drops on my face, summer warmth all around.

Fly perspective
I had flown all day and hadn't found anything, not a single white flower, did I oversleep summer or what, truly I think it's autumn now, because yellow and red can be found but not a single white; except this: I call her perfect.

Hurry, the wind is lurking around, the cold is creeping in, the beggars is coming closer, this night has just begun, hurry.

I'm coming
I just drift, fast - slow, always towards the same goal. There you all are, together - joyful - colourful. I am on my way, soon home - soon there. With love, xxx

On a limb
Sitting, all alone in the cold, waiting, for the other half to come home to the nest so, they can change assignments; being hunter and hunted. Sitting on a limb, watching, the world from up high, making sure no thieves or murderers swing by, in case of danger a sacrifice will take place in the blood red sky.

Crown
She's dancing with a crown made of flowers no one have never seen before.

Wish upon a falling star
The star hung there in the window, waiting, biding her time, knowing that the long lost lover would return to the young woman crying in the shelter of the dark, while over played records cracked one after another under endless repeat. But the star was confident in the love that joined the two lovers together, no matter how far or how long they might have parted. The years came and the years went, seasons changed, and the woman old with sorrow soon fell into the angel's arms, but the star remained till the day she fell from her mighty hope of a lovers' reunion and became just another star in the sky to make a joyful wish

As the night begins
The sun slowly bows to the Moon while she rises in the sky, He with his head down, She with her hair soaring high, with a final kiss they say good bye.
