I wish I could post a happy update about my recent hike, my imminent journey to Ireland and summer in general. Instead I will only assure my f-list that I am not among the dead today.

First the explosion, now a shooter at a political youth camp. Possibly, dozens are dead, seven are confirmed killed so far but eye witnesses say the shooter outright executed people at that camp. God, what is the world coming to? I know it's ridiculous to think that this could never happen to us Norwegians, but it's so shocking when it does.

/end inarticulate post.

I'm glad you're okay! I'm actually very surprised that something like that happened in Norway; it always seemed such a safe haven!

It always felt like one, but now I'm not so sure. It's a surrealistic feeling; I'm just happy I don't actually live in the capital but just over ten miles outside it.

Thanks, all hugs are very welcome nowadays :) It was a horrible thing; I didn't know any of the victims or their families, but it still affected me a lot. The rose gathering by the Oslo city hall yesterday was such a beautiful expression of how Norway feels about this!
