Loki does not at all like being photographed with flash!

Loki resting

He got up off the couch and plonked himself down on the floor with a deep sigh after this shot.

Lately I’ve found it hard to write anything about the youths I’m appointed as guardian for – but I haven’t been able to pinpoint the reason. Not until today after I ‘d had a long conversation with -S- and her boyfriend. I got to know -S- about 4 months ago when she first arrived here – and since then we’ve been on a roller-coaster ride, to put it mildly. Neither the staff nor I  have been able to figure out what was behind her actions, her terror or her boundless grief at times.

Now I know.


With a history of abuse from an early age, drug-use to make life bearable at least for the moment and God knows what else – it’s a complete wonder how she has survived. Now that she is in safety, all those ghosts from her previous life comes back to haunt her if she feels stressed out. She has agreed that I can tell her neurologist what she’s been through and she will herself tell her counsellor.

Her story is shared by so many other girls who have left everything to save themselves. It absolutely breaks my heart that she has to deal with all this anger, hurt and dark thoughts when she should be able to concentrate on building a new life in safety here!

Hawk Owl

Filed under: Nature — allmycke @ 6:45 pm

I got out a bit too late today to get any decent pictures…


This Hawk owl kept close tabs on Loki as he was chasing rodents in the area he/she was scanning for the same purpose.

You Be The Judge

Filed under: Nature,Photography — allmycke @ 7:51 pm

Apparently, I have to shrink my pictures to about 800×600 pixels to make them fit…


This also means that the pictures can’t be enlarged in case you’d like to view them in a larger format…

I think this is such nonsense, that I really don’t know if it’s worth the bother on my part. Any suggestions?

Why has wordpress changed their editing page? I’ve tried reading on their support pages to figure out how  can re-size pictures – but the buttons they refer to are nowhere to be found!

Testing II

How does this last picture appear on your screen? Please send me a mail at trudie_p@hotmail.com


I am almost going ballistic over the fact that wordpress no longer is user-friendly… unless you buy into the premium program at $99/year. Grrr!

Let’s see if a picture taken with my tiny pointn’ shoot  will make the cut with the new format wordpress has decided on.


I’m doubtful…

on speaking terms with wordpress… The pictures will show in a size suitable for a 56inch TV no matter how I try and tweak them! Isn’t there anyone that can help me???

…wordpress! Why do they change their editing functions in such a way that I an’t adjust the size of my Pictures – no. matter. what??? I’ve tried it all from full size (out of the camera) and down to 120kb-size. Guess what?  They STILL show up in the largest format! Grrr!
