Co-P e iden ’ Col mn “Do ou ant to build a sno man?” is the question asked b Anna and Elsa in the animated Disne movie, Fro- en. The movie setting is the m thical
Nor egian inspired kingdom of Aren- delle. Anna and Elsa created the mag- ical sno man Olaf, ho has child-like innocence and a ise-cracking sense of humor. Olaf is pictured here, be- t een Jan and Sherrie Loomis. Sherrie and I have ans ered the question posed above, and e are moving to Windsor, Colorado the end of November here e’ll be making more sno men than possible in AZ. We join ith Olaf in aving goodb e to all of our friends and members of Desert Fjord, here e have been engaged in lodge activities for the past 20 ears. We ill miss all of ou and sincerel appreciate the Nor egian fello ship and support that ou have shared ith us these man ears. We ill relish the memories of meals shared and stimulating presentations and discussions about art, culture, music, travel, histor , genealog , and more. There are too man people to thank for all the did to make us feel el- come and for sharing their talent and leadership skills that made Desert Fjord such a great lodge. We ere blessed to have orked ith these leaders ho have passed a a John Lovell, Hal Onsager, Sharon Clunk, Ralph Hjelmstad, Roger Espeland, Anker Miltun. We have enjo ed
orking alongside Ed and Ph lliss Bergo, Jonathan Walters, Janis John- son, Ross Berg, Flo d and Eli abeth Do ns, Berit Miltun, Dirk and Da n Walter, Ali Berg, Lois Riple , Jana Peterson, Nina Poe, Lois Sakkas, Shirle Ouren, Georgiann Crouse, Shannon Prond inski and man more. Without these people, the lodge could not e ist. The put in the e tra
ork and effort to make sure meetings and events are useful and enjo - able for the rest of us. We encourage ou to get engaged in lodge leadership and activities. It’s a great a to develop long-lasting friendships and it gives ou an op- portunit to engage in our Nor egian heritage in even deeper a s. Though e are moving, e ill remain active in Sons of Nor a . The Colorado lodges are also in District 6, so e hope to see our Desert Fjord friends at future District conventions. We can no longer invite ou to hat had become our annual, “Picnic in the Pines” in Pa son an - more. Ho ever, e’d elcome ou to Colorful Colorado to stop in for some Nor egian hospitalit if ou’re ever in our neighborhood. Mange takk and farvel. Jan and Sherrie Loomis

L I B A C N E A Book Review by Jan Johnson
(highlighting one of the books a ailable in our great Librar )
One of the most prominent citi ens of Goteborg, S eden, plunges to his death off an apartment balcon , but hat appears to be a “societ suicide” soon reveals itself to be a carefull plotted murder. Irene Huss finds herself embroiled in a comple , high-
stakes investigation. As Huss and her team begin to uncover the victim’s hidden past, the are dragged into S eden’s seam under orld of street gangs, struggling immigrants, and neo-Na is, in order to catch the killer.
(Helene Tursten is a S edish riter of crime fiction. The main character in her stories is Detecti e Inspector Irene Huss ho is a ife, mother and homicide detecti e. “De ec e In ec H ” i he in an -b k e ie hich ake

This is a book that portrays an evolution: when I was a girl, fascinated by traveling and camping in beautiful Arizona, Colorado, and Mexico, I was motivated to love the ever-changing skies and mountains. After receiving gifts of viewing famous museums, ballet performances, intriguing architecture, taking thousands of dance lessons, using art books and materials, I yearned to dance and create. This early training led me further into the enduring study of art and dance and ultimately, a career where arts are an integral part of my life profession as a practicing artist, dancer, and college and elementary teacher.
During those wonderful and fruitful years, adventurous international college classes, curiosity, and friluftsliv led me to explore Europe and my ancestral homeland, Norway. More extensive travels and exhibits throughout Scandinavia pre- sented preternatural opportunities for my camera and paints. These adventures deepened my appreciation for the astounding work of so many creatively-inspired people; they applied their wondrous gifts and shared them for the ages to come. For me, reliving and reviewing all their creations has been an almost surreal experience.
Now I must share my visual impressions of some of the world’s great Scandinavian landscapes and their magical im- pact. I have a great sense of relief that now these inspirational paintings may serve as a witness to some of the magnifi- cent joys of this world.
