The saying goes . . .


Vi sier ofte litt spøkefullt at ting var mye bedre før? Og kan hende bygges det samfunnet vi omgir oss med vel i raskeste laget? Ofte glemmer man at et samfunn kan være uhyre differensiert og at slike samfunn også inkluderer eldre, mennesker med fysiske handicap eller medisinske diagnoser som ikke uten videre greier å følge med på den tekniske utvikling. I slik sammenheng overser man ofte behov for konsekvens-analyser og de hullene som av og til oppstår i våre sosiale sikkerhetsnett, kommunikasjonsmønstre så vel som i vårt offentlige helsevesen. Det er alvorlig! Og – det er våre valgte politikeres ansvar!
Det er derfor de er valgt!  Og det er derfor den såkalte ‘politiker-forakten’ er på fremmarsj over store deler av vår verden. Men kan det samme gjelde solnedganger? Nah!

Likevel er det leeenge siden jeg sist så en slik solnedgang! For å være helt nøyaktig: 5,5 år!
Og – så der ikke sammenligningen helt på jordet om vi ser på ordet ‘solnedgang’ i en overført betydning? I livets siste fase føler man trygghet over å bli forstått når det gjelder.
Særlig i de tilfeller hvor man er henvist til å bruke sitt eget morsmål?!
We may often jokingly claim that things were always better before? And in some cases we may be right about that? Possibly is the society around us being built a little bit too fast at times? Politicians tend to forget that a modern society is a very differential structure including our elders, people with a physical handicap or a medical diagnosis that makes it hard – it not impossible – to follow the fast moving technologies of our world?
In this situation analyzing consequences are often forgotten. (Besides it takes time and cost a lot of money.) An they often overlook the gaps created in our social safety nets, not to mention our health care programmes! This is a very serious situation! And it is our elected politician’s responsibility! It’s also why the contempt of the same politicians is on a rise in public opinions! But – this can’t have anything to do with a sunset? Nah!

Well ,- it’s a fact that there has been quite a looong time since I last spotted a sunset like this one?  5,5 years to be exact!!!
And – the comparison isn’t all that far fetched if one looks at it in a perspective? Comparing the sunset with the last phase of life? And in this last phase of life it’s important that the communication works, especially in situations where the mother language is the only one that would work!

    Sunsets are gifts that take us away from burdensome realities. Yes, there will sometimes be clouds to hide the beauty but they pass.

    Ingen tvil om at hvis jeg hadde hatt en tidsmaskin så hadde jeg reist minst 50 år tilbake i tid!

    Two days ago, in Milan, the sunset was unbelievable: violet and yellow, mith round clouds. They says it depends on a warm wind from the Nord. Anyway, everybody in Milan took the picture
