The author of this page, skiing on a cold day in Guovdageaidnu

Welcome to the weeds, disobedient writings in defend of biological, cultural, ethnical and linguistical plurality.

I am a Norwegian, grown in Skien, Southern Norway, but from 1973 I have been living in the north, mainly in Hammerfest and Guovdageaidnu in the county of Finnmark. A good part of my time I spend in Gdańsk in Poland, the main reason for that is the webmaster behind these pages.

Pictures from one of our travels between these places - and some others - you may find here
I have been working among others as a mechanic and a teacher of mechanics, but later I have mainly tried to live from what I write. I am also engaged in Friends of the Earth Norway and in building up at Nature Center in Guovdageaidnu. Now I am trying to retire, but that is not so easy.

On the left side of the screen, you will find my writings sorted according to theme, language and time.
