Time moves differently…

in the woods. Oftentimes, I’ll take a long walk in the forest and when I return I’ll feel like three or more hours have passed. But when I look at the clock, I’ll see it’s only been an hour or so. I find this odd, as time usually feels slow when you’re not having aFortsätt läsa ”Time moves differently…”

Searching for Elven mills and finding witch’s butter

I’ve been spending a lot of time in the forest in the last few days. It hasn’t been great weather for nature walks – very grey and misty – but this is where I always go when nothing feels right. Due to a number of personal issues I won’t get into, my mood has beenFortsätt läsa ”Searching for Elven mills and finding witch’s butter”

Bugs and bones

Today I went with members of my family to pick chanterelles in the forest. We only found a few but what we did find plenty of was animal bones. The area is one heavily frequented by hunters, so this wasn’t much of a surprise. It’s been way too long since I was in nature. ProbablyFortsätt läsa ”Bugs and bones”

Too hot to think

Today was a very hot day at 27 C°. When the weather is like this, I find it hard to think so my writing goal for the day was quite humble: write a short plot plan for the rest of the novel. Which I did, sitting by the shore of the Surtesjön in the VättlefjällFortsätt läsa ”Too hot to think”

For the coming couple days I’m staying at my parents’ house and watching their pets while they’re away. Since I’m here I thought I’d take the opportunity to walk through the local forest like I used to when I was younger. I wandered for a while and felt a little lost. A lot of theFortsätt läsa ”Finding another ancestral grave”

How long does it take for plastic waste to break down?

Yesterday, I was in the forest looking for things to use in the creation of an altar. Stuff like feathers, rock with special shapes, animal bones etc. I didn’t find much interesting but when I kneeled by a water stream, I saw something sticking out of the sandy bottom. I pulled it out and foundFortsätt läsa ”How long does it take for plastic waste to break down?”

New horizons

Yesterday I spent most of the day in the only place I ever really feel at peace: the forest. I went there on that particular day to pray for blessing in a new writing project but it also gave me some time and much needed peace and quiet to reflect on where to go nextFortsätt läsa ”New horizons”

Stumbling upon an ancient grave

This morning I went out into the forest to do some meditation and seidr, when I saw this large pile of rocks up a hill. There also seemed to be a worn down stone path leading up to it. I went up and looked more closely at this obviously man-made pile and wondered what itFortsätt läsa ”Stumbling upon an ancient grave”
