Postcard from the Arctic Circle

By Ann Driggers

"The view from my office on some back of beyond island where my arrival has doubled the population. Could do with some heating.  -12 with a wind chill of -25 today.  Not much fun stuck in the Arctic circle with only 3 hrs day light. Not managed to see the northern lights yet. There is a storm on its way in so it's cloudy at night but I'll see if I can get a photo."

No, I'm not in the Arctic Circle. If it were me I would be planning on skiing those peaks. My family travel alot for both work and pleasure as well as living in different and diverse places around the world. In fact, last October, all four of us siblings were each on a different continent at the same time - the Americas, Australasia, Africa and Europe -instead of the usual three we spread ourselves between. I recently received an electronic 'postcard' from my youngest brother who is on a work project in the far north of Norway. Since I enjoy hearing about all these far flug and different places I thought I'd share. I'm hoping he will get a photo of the Northern Lights and I'll get to share that too.
