Radio waves Enjoy cornfields waving in the wind, fusilli pasta, wavy spectators in a stadium, humming waves at the therapist’s, ‘The Wave’ movie by Morton Rhue, wavy girlie curls, a beautiful snail, royal waves at the amusement park, liquorice rolls mmm.

Maybe it’s because I’m a musician, but the word wave immediately made me think of different musical terms/genres such as ‘new wave’ and ‘no wave’. If you go visit allmusic.com and make a search for song titles with the word ‘wave’, the name Antonio Carlos Jobim pops up.. but then again he’s from Brazil [...]

Sjaldan er ein bÃ¡ran stÃ¶k This is an old Icelandic saying, which literarily means that a wave (bÃ¡ra) rarely (sjaldan) comes alone (stÃ¶k). Waves always come one after another.

I grew up in a small town in Denmark, where the inhabitants didn’t make much fuss about themselves. We did though have one thing to be really proud of: We had waves, and those waves were often mentioned in the broadcasting media. The waves were coming from the Kalundborg Transmitter, a transmission facility for long- [...]

Salt is the tasteÂ of sweat, tears and a day at the beach. SaltÂ broughtÂ us good health, it brought us bacalao, herring preservation, yummy longlasting breads and that never-sinking feeling of flying when one is bathing in places like the Dead Sea and Central Asia’s wonderous Issyk-Kul Lake. Due to scarce sunlight, in Northern EuropeÂ saltÂ is being extracted [...]
Â Here’s an art projectÂ I encountered inÂ the front office of the Danish minister of culture Brian Mikkelsen. As far as I know it’s still there.Â The piece isÂ a seemingly ordinary cup of coffee placed on a windowsill a few metres away from the actual office of the minister. Every 10 seconds,Â a mechanism triggers shockwaves (well, more [...]
Maroubra, favourite playground for many of Sydney’s surfers due to its windy climate and giant waves. Maroubra means “thunder” in local aboriginal dialect – the name stems from the sound of hard surf hitting the rocks.

I went to Australia a couple of years ago – and we went to Hyden in Western Australia to see Wave Rock – and it was fantastic – even though I have never been in a hot place with so many flies :-) Waves are soft and gentle – and this wave is hard and [...]
