Celebration Time

Rainbow flags all over the city. Here at the Nordstan shopping mall. The local Pride festival is happening next week and it’s the first non-socially distanced one since the pandemic.

The Giants Shine at Night

I have wandered many nights when I could not sleep.I have wandered in Gothenburg and in Bangkok, in Dubai and in Lyon.I have wandered under falling snow and in tropical heat,At the feet of skyscrapers and beneath cathedrals.I have wandered alone, most of the time. And in all cities the world round,The giants shine atFortsätt läsa ”The Giants Shine at Night”

It is done!

Yesterday, I wrote the last words to the novel I’ve been writing. Finishing the last chapter took a bit more time than I expected but it also ended up being longer than I originally planned. I’ve got some editing and additional proofreading to do before it is ready to be sent to publishers and literaryFortsätt läsa ”It is done!”

Son of Jord and Njord

Yesterday I bought a soap with scent of the seaIt’s got real pieces of kelp in it and it feels like such luxury.

A Song for Sunna

I went and had another walk by the sea today. The sun was already low when I came to the shore at around 2 p.m. and soon I found myself whispering an improvised tune to Sunna. Later, I wrote the words down and added a few extra verses. The poem is in Swedish, which isFortsätt läsa ”A Song for Sunna”

Monday morning in September

Early morning, 4 a.m.The streets are empty,Except for me and the birds.A handful of sparrows are seaking treasures in a pile of vomit.I wonder if my boss is already up at this hour. At the tram stop, I look around carefully. I haven’t been robbed yet, but I also make sure to always wear myFortsätt läsa ”Monday morning in September”

A little bit of writing

I didn’t do much writing today but it was enough to finish chapter 13. I had some ice cream to celebrate: My goal is to finish chapter 14 before the end of the month. I might have a minor surgery sometimes soon so I’m setting the bar low since I don’t know how I’ll beFortsätt läsa ”A little bit of writing”

Writing digital text – through handwriting

I generally avoid writing by hand because having to rewrite everything by typing on the computer is a big waste of time that I prefer to do without. But writing with a pen feels so much more natural to me and the words flow so easily when I do. If only there was a wayFortsätt läsa ”Writing digital text – through handwriting”
