“Blå hester i Guds hage – om å være til stede i eget liv” “Blue horses in the garden of God” about being present in one’s own life” is out again in its third printing in Norwegian. An English version is due the fall 2015.This is a book of great value because it shows us how we may enrich our everyday lives by simple means. And that life takes on a new dimension when we manage to be totally present in what we think, feel and do.
Daily reflections inspire us to take care of ourselves and other people. It encourages us to make sure that we are where we wish to be or if time is ripe for change. The texts offer help for releasing negative patterns of thought, the fear of ageing and the anxiety of dying.
The book invites us to be aware of our senses, our enjoyment and appreciate the life that surrounds us. And, not least of all, it wishes that we are true to ourselves, the blue and unique horse in the garden of God.
Two to three thousand- year- old texts reinforce each page. It comes with a blue bookmark in silk. This is a book for everyone.

“Foreldretanker” “The thoughts of parents” is a collection of poetry that I have edited about parents following their children from newborn to adults. There are 36 Norwegian poets represented in the collection with the exception of the Danish Tove Ditlevsen. The book covers a wide variety from cherished national authors like Halldis Moren Vesaas , André Bjerke, Inger Hagerup to present day poets like Annie Riis, Gro Dahle, Kolbein Falkeid and Stein Mehren to mention a few. Three of my own poems are included. The book functions as a reference book because of its chronological order of age, and it is divided into chapters which reflects how parents relate to the physical, mental and social development their child goes through at different stages.
