island jumping in Troms

In collecting, friends, how to, I MAKE STUFF 2, manhood, nature, norway, totem poles, tromsø on March 29, 2009 at 7:44 pm

Last wednsday , Gerd, Ragnvald and me had a nice roadtrip around some of the islands of Troms. Gerd have been teaching me some basic techniques of woodcarving in his workshop the last week, and Ragnvald has been so sweet to supply me with some of his nice sibirian driftwood that he collect. So now its all set for the totempole I’m going to start carving.
woodcarving is hard work.. guess I’ll be pretty buff soon!

And yeah, here is some pixx from the trip me and the guys had,
– I love the snowy beaches!

When I grow up, I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
That’s what I’ll do, throwing out boomerang
Waiting for it to come back to me

When I grow up, I want to live near the sea
Crab claws and bottles of rum
That’s what i’ll have staring at the seashell
Waiting for it to embrace me

“(…) some Native Americans have come to see them as “tacky” and over-commercialized due to their acceptance in popular culture.”

Traditionally, the Ojibwa construct dreamcatchers by tying sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame of willow (in a way roughly similar to their method for making snowshoe webbing). The resulting “dream-catcher”, hung above the bed, is then used as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. Dreamcatchers made of willow and sinew are not meant to last forever but instead are intended to dry out and collapse over time as the child enters the age of adulthood.
