Day 224 -Gnomes

This project is a few weeks old, and I have been meaning to post it for a few days now. Oops!

I was particularly troubled and saddened by the events that happened in Norway last month. Saddened not only because of the horrible things that happened but also because it happened to a beautiful, peaceful nation that my family immigrated to Canada from. I know that in the world, horrible events happen all the time; earthquakes, famine, airplane crashes but until the attack in Norway I had never really felt a strong connection or tie to what was happening. Yes it’s heartbreaking to read about Japan, Haiti and Libya and in no way do I think that those stories are any less tragic or important. For me, my Norwegian heritage has always been important and to see a part of my life affected by a negative action really bothered me. I did what I tend to do when I’m feeling stressed or without words. I created. I made some Gnomes ( I think my love of Gnomes must be the Scandinavian in me!) and took this photo as a visual representation of how I felt at the time.
