I can't begin to express my sorrow for Norway and the victims of the tragedies there...I've been trying to think how to say what I feel and it's just...not...coming out right. When I've visited a place, there's more sense of connection--I suppose that's natural, but...my brief visit to Norway in 2005 was very special to me. Oslo was a delight; the people were wonderful to me. I walked down those very streets; I saw those very buildings, I got lost (twice) and friendly, open-hearted Norwegians helped me get back where I needed to be. I enjoyed every moment of my time in Norway, and I grieve for its losses, which are both physical and emotional.
