Y is for Little Miss Y

There is a girl I know, on the other side of the ocean, who I'm just going to call Miss Y during this post. I don’t usually talk about very personal things here, you might have noticed how I’ve kept my posts strictly away from the current news stories from Norway, for example, and I don’t like to talk much about emotions or private matters. But Miss Y is special to me and I would like to share a little bit of her with you.

Things in Oslo started to go downhill for me around mid-September. I had a lot of (after reading what some of you have been through, I’m going to say extremely mild) health problems and some other troubles. Miss Y responded to a post I had written, asking if anyone was in the same position as I was, since I needed someone to talk to, and we became extremely close friends over the next months. It seems that she is my long lost twin, we share so much in common and are so much alike.

Isn’t it funny that with the way technology is these days - we can all find each other, no matter where we are in the world and connect and influence each others lives? For example, I value each of you, my readers, you share my love of Scandinavia and I share your love of writing, fantasy, fairytales, art, literature, travel, science, everything and yet we have never met. I spend hours here and there with you, sitting in my little flat with a cup of coffee and sharing little pieces of my life with you.

Miss Y does the same. She found me when I was feeling lost and she helps me to feel better every single day with her kind words. She is the most creative and talented person I know and she has the kindest heart. I couldn’t be more grateful for the friend she has been to me and she absolutely deserves to have one of my challenge posts dedicated to her.

  7. Oh, this is lovely! You are lucky to have found such a friend.

    "Isn’t it funny that with the way technology is these days - we can all find each other, no matter where we are in the world and connect and influence each others lives?" - I love that! It's so true, and I am so grateful.

    (P.S. You posted it at a time when I was busy, so I didn't get around to commenting, but I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed the music of Oh Land that you posted! I'd never heard of her before, and shall definitely have to listen to more.)
