One result of my dead tree obsession period.
I like trees. Alot. Sometimes a bit obsessive. There was a period in my life when I was obsessed with photographing dead trees. Meaning trees that have fallen, broken, cut down, burning or just got old and rottened.

In wikipedia you can read this:

Dendrophilia (paraphilia)

Dendrophilia (or less often arborphilia or dendrophily) literally means "love of trees". The term may sometimes refer to a paraphilia in which people are sexually attracted to or sexually aroused by trees. This may involve sexual contact or veneration as phallic symbols or both.[1]
One such example is Emma Mccabe who has said that she is in love with, and has plans to marry, a poplar tree named Tim.  

I think definately I am dendrophil, cause I love trees. I think of each and everyone of the trees as different individuals - like us humans. They all have their own energy and personality. For me it is very logical and natural. A old big tree would be like an old human -wise, calm and determinded. A small tree is like a child - playful and active. Active meaning it would make alot of seeds, or grow in different ways, get rid of some parts, and grow new for example.  

I have had times when trees have inspired me greatly, like they have inspired millions of people before me. The thing with threes is that they represent life in a great and wise way. We have all heard the "tree of life".

I was lucky enough to know at a early stage in life that I was a singer. Many people have no idea what they want to do in their lives, but I knew when I was around 4 years that I wanted to be a singer. My whole childhood I really truly thought I was a singer.

My aunt Sonja has told me that when I saw my father up on stage playing the guitar and singing, I had said "When I grow up I want to sing in a band just like my dad".

All my childhood I remember singing all the time everywhere, and dreaming about releasing albums and singing on stages. I was a part of the sami shows at the Sami radiostation and TV - NRK Sápmi when I was in elementary shcool, you could say that´s where I started my carriere.

Muitalus ulddaid birra - En huldrehistorie

Máŋgejuvvon dás   lobikeahttá.

Eatnanvuolážat leat riggábut go olbmot mat leat eatnan alde: sis leat čáppa orohagat, hearvás fiinna biktasat ja ollu ruhta. Ja visot gollit ja silbbat mat gávdnojit eatnama vuolde, dat leat sin. Ja dasa lassin leat velá sin hálddus visot diet čiegát, máid olbmot áiggi mielde leat bidjan eatnamii, dakkár árahávddit. Ja dat leat biddjon eatnamii dakkár sániiguin ahte eai oaččo váldit iežát go lagas olbmot. Ja jus iežát váldet, de ráimmahallet.

Ja nu de báhcet ollu čiegát ulddaid háldui, go bárdni dahje nieida ii gávnna áhčis, iige áhkus čiegá. Ja ulddat eai atte daid čiegáid earáide go daidda rievttes maŋisbohttiide.
Visot, mii lea eatnama vuolde, ulddat hoidejit čábbát, ja seammá čábbát dat dikšot guovžža, mii nohkká dálvvi su biejus. Ulddat dat addet dasa borramuša, vaikko oaidnit gal ii sáhte ahte das lea biebmu čoavjjis.
