I am about to throw myself, hands first, into the very world of blogging. I think that this, my first writing, will have to declare my intents as to languages. Most of my blogs will be written in Norwegian. It is a big world out there, though, and as there just might be someone reading this who is not too fluent in that chosen language, I will also write some of my thoughts down in modern day Latin, namely English. This  blog being one such.

I call myself PapaGuru. By that the perceptive reader may already deduce that I am a father. Indeed so, I quicken to confess (no third grade interrogating necessary to wring that one out). I am the proud father to one daughter and two sons. More about fatherhood later on. More about being a man, in these strange days, later on.

The Guru part is to, slightly tongue in cheek, underline my tendency to give advice and share my opinions in more directions than may be called for. Anyway, I have now declared myself, more modest than Oscar Wilde, but still.

During most days I do my Tai Chi. Ponder on the world, close and afar, and make and play my music. Music  will be one of my main occupations as to this blog.

Enough for this first of blogs. Thank you for your attention.

Yours PapaGuru.
