Sophic Scribbles from the North


I consider myself an artist with an insatiable wanderlust. I write, weaving ideas into reality. I paint and draw, expressing myself and what I see inside of me. I read avidly as for me books are treasure chests of marvelous knowledge. But… I am also a proud out-of the-closet nerd. Not the one who is heavily into science and who explains everything scientifically (with all due respect to that breed of nerds). I am, however, the kind of nerd who reads comic books, watches superhero movies repeatedly, quotes Lord Of The Rings whenever proper (or not!) and researches tenaciously about matters of interest (culture, history, mythology, art, architecture – just to name a few). And yes, I am a hyperactive explosion of positive energy. I discovered Denmark unexpectedly some years ago, and desperately fell in love with a sailor of merchant’s harbor – Copenhagen. I had no choice but to move closer to my sweetheart and indulge in all the gifts of life it offers generously. Here, I shall share my stories and experiences from Denmark I lived to tell with all my devoted passion for country that stole my restless heart of a drifter ;)
