Adventures and Quiet House with Dad

Where my mother’s style of living was an inferno of being social in the commune my dad’s house was very quiet. He is a physicist and at that time he was doing his PHD so I had a lot of time to myself. In our house we only kept the most left wing, high brow newspaper ‘Information’ and we had no TV. We only listened to P1, which is the public service radio station. In solitude with my dad, I learned to do and invent things by myself and I was always either drawing, while listening to music or playing the piano. I recall a sense of loneliness. A sense that I turned around and I began to create things for myself. Mostly within the arts.

When everything was covered in snow and ice my dad thought it the perfect time to challenge nature and our survival instincts.

For fun we did sports together. We either went horse back riding, canoeing or running. My dad was an athlete and almost made the national team to go to the Olympics. But his science became more important for him at a certain point in his career and he went with it. Another thing we would do for fun during winter was to pack our camping gear and go down to our local lake. When everything was covered in snow and ice my dad thought it the perfect time to challenge nature and our survival instincts. The lake is pretty big and when it’s winter, it freezes over. We would hike out over the ice all the way out to one of the islands in the frozen lake, set up our tents and sleep there in high snow. Next morning, we would get up early and I would go to school like any other day.

About this time in my life, when all my classmates would get trendy clothes and fun toys I realized that my family was different.

When I turned 11 my dad gave me a huge, red canoe. It was great! The only problem was that I needed at least 3 other people to help me carry it to the nearest lake, which was a 20 minute walk from our house. Looking back, a canoe is maybe not the most obvious gift for a 11 year old girl 😉 About this time in my life, when all my classmates would get trendy clothes and fun toys I realized that my family was different.

What are your experiences from your childhood? Did you also feel different? Once in a while it’s nice to take a moment to go back in time to understand why and where you are today…

Talk soon again! I’m working on getting a new design and layout of the blog. Looking forward to share it with you soon 🙂

xoxo KK
