Thank you for all the hearts on my previous post. I would invite you all over for a cinnamon roll if I could πŸ’•

I'm the daughter of a refugee from a non western country - in the eyes of the Danish government that now makes me not Danish, despite being born in Denmark and having lived here all 32 years of my life. I'm not exactly sure how I'm supposed to feel about that, and how everyone else affected is supposed to feel. As if I didn't feel rootless enough already, being the child of two different cultures, the one I've identified with the most has now basically cast me out. I can't help but feel that a lot of doors are closing around the world, that too many of us are turning a blind eye and that it's going to have serious consequences for our options of living in peace in the future. Keeping your door shut doesn't just keep people out, it keeps you locked in. So open that door. If you can't be the light then at least let it (and us!) in - don't let fear take you over ✨

Just sitting at home thinking about days not long ago when I was a bit more mobile πŸ˜…

A fantastic LA Ring at @ordrupgaard

Completely caught off guard, morning breath and all, by the best people I know today ❀

A little trip with @legacyofbuch & @lo0mer

Sometimes the beach ball just wants pancakes and you need a short break from the terrifying things happening in the world at the moment. Could use some of that delicious Canadian maple syrup, though 🍁

Thank you for the eucalyptus @zobolondon πŸ’•

It's incredible how much easier it is to cycle with a giant belly than it is walking! 🚲

So happy to be spending time with this fantastic woman again. Please @zobolondon - move to Copenhagen πŸ’•

He has the hiccups a lot

A short course on amber this week concluded with a tiny exhibition, where we had to sort and curate different "types" of baltic amber. Amber will naturally have the colour of the resin of the tree it comes from - usually clear and golden - but depending on the circumstances during formation several million years ago, various degrees of degradation and optical illusions it can take on all kinds of shades of yellow, brown, red and even almost black. Opaque, milky or even white amber is caused by tens of thousands microscopic bubbles stored in the amber when cured. Dark spots can be anything from soil, pyrite or organisms caught in the resin when it was still sticky #konservatorliv
