I am Granny Kari, a Norwegian firmly believing nothing is impossible not only having the time of
my life writing. I am very proud to be the mother of 2 wonderful sons and a granny of 8 darling grandchildren after being run over by a truck in Oslo at the age of 5 and later told I could never have children. Well, an eternal optimist I did anyway, marrying
and giving birth to both my sons in Oslo.
After travelling much, visiting over 70 countries and living in several, I have discovered what is even more, a friendly smile… no, not
the fake kind we make when photographers ask us to say:”Cheese!” No, the real kind… for a genuine, heartfelt smile is understood by anyone everywhere and can even lighten up anyone’s day no matter how stressed we are. Such a smile
is the best ‘word’ we can give to anyone and THAT is 'Saying Something' coming from a poet a novelist, a writer and an author. Oh, yessss!
A genuine smile works miracles.
That and music, for music can take your soul whenever and whereever you want to go. I use music for inspiration when I write. I am what some call a happy poet in a world full of so many things not to be awfully happy about, and by now several do
like my world. Awfully Human, I guess I just like to make people smile a bit for smiling is not only healthy; it makes people look nice… and feel nice. Oh, well, I guess I’m just someone with a great deal of humor, insisting we are
all just Humans… flawed and fabulous. Oh, yessss!
And one more thing, not everyone can make you smile with tears in your eyes. No, but finding someone who can is a real treat.
I did and I’ve never been the same ever since. Certain laughter is the best medicine… even discovering happiness is within all of us… and a state of mind we can chose… or not, I have survived many things and even cancer twice…
and now at... Ehemm... (the age of 69.95… Hahaaa! A few months away from being 70 years old) Hah! Well, grateful to still being alive after a life that was a bumpy ride at times… but definitely quite a ride! Some say Old Dogs SIT barking…
Oh, yessss… my book... Have More than a PEEK!
